While not a sequel, Armikrog is already being considered a spiritual successor to The Neverhood. It's being developed by the same core creative group with the same passion and dedication to blurring the lines between art and technology in a video game.
Featuring the unique characters and signature art style of creator Doug TenNapel, the magical appeal of stop-motion animation and the musical genius of Neverhood composer Terry S. Taylor, Armikrog promises to be a game that will deliver the enjoyable challenge, whimsy and humor that made The Neverhood accessible to such a wide audience.
Armikrog tells the story of a space explorer named Tommynaut and his blind alien talking dog Beak-Beak, who crash-land on a strange planet and find themselves trapped within the walls of a fantastic, mystical fortress called Armikrog. Players will need to solve an array of entertaining and mind-bending puzzles to help Tommynaut out of his predicament, and will quickly discover that the epic Armikrog is much more than simply a fortress from which they must escape.
Armikrog has been successfully funded through Kickstarter. It will be released in the Summer of 2014 on PC, Mac and Linux.
