As a person that grew up with Earthworm Jim, The Neverhood and Skullmonkeys, I'm pretty excited to hear that the creator behind these titles is going to attempt to kickstart a spiritual successor to his claymation franchise, a clay and puppet adventure game titled Armikrog. We're talking old school claymation and sculpture integrated into a modern day game engine here, no 3D!

The game already has a star studded lineup for voice work, including Jon Heder, Rob Paulsen and Michael J. Nelson among others, assuming the project reaches it's lofty $900,000 goal ($30,000 so far just one day after launching). If you're interested in supporting the return of a wonderful franchise, head over to their Kickstarter and show some love to the art of claymation fueled gameplay.
