I really wanted to do a blog about The Neverhood (I actually still intend to, just my free time is sparse so it wont be finished any time around tomorrow) but the idea of a spiritual successor to it is such a great thing. I wanted to do this to raise awareness of Armikrog and the kickstarter and whatever, but I haven't had time.
I guess I've just always had a fondness for claymation- it's one of the craziest looking and coolest looking art forms in my opinion (lessened when a lot of CGI is used with it, but it's still a great art form). I think The Wind and the Willows may have been the first thing I actually ever saw with claymation- then a ton of the Aardman stuff. In games, it was never a widely used thing, though. After The Neverhood I had hoped (at the time) that more claymation stuff would show up- but other then skull monkeys (which- other than cut scenes- really doesn't have the claymation as on display as The Neverhood just by nature of it being a platformer).
So, I guess the fact that it's claymation really grabs me like nothing else. It's pretty much unused territory. I guess my niche markets love always plays me the fool, but I also wish FMV would be done again too. One of these days I'm going to figure out how to program something like that and it's going to be amazing.
So, anyway. I guess this somehow became a short retrospective post about claymation games, how unused the concept basically is, and also a way to spread a little more awareness about Armikrog.
Feel free to share your thoughts on it or whatever as well- just keep it nice. I know Tennapel's political views are unpopular and are not the point of this thread. Thanks.
