I was wondering about the Giantbomb communities interest in the game and they supported it at all.
No, I had it set to remind me and still forgot about it.
I usually pledge $1 and then up it to whatever tier will get me a digital copy of the game closer to the end of the thing, depending on what they've showed so far at that point. Like, I'll check videos, updates and such.
I was going to back it originally, because I played the Neverhood and remember it fondly, and because no one's making games like this (claymation+stopmotion) which is something I'd like to support - but I dunno. I felt they could do better with what they showed. I mean cameras are really high def these days so the game has good potential to be really cool in that sense, but it's important to note that stopmotion becomes smoother the more pictures you take and the smaller movements you make between the shots. Some people actually like the jerkiness of stopmotion stuff, but honestly in this day and age, I'm looking for a more seamless experience.
Still glad it's being made, though. Bit of an odd choice to go with the WiiU since it has one of the lowest install bases but eh.
Also I had not heard about the controversy.
@xymox: The controversy is basically that Doug TenNapel has made some unpopular comments about gay marriage and relationships. I'm sure if you google doug TenNapel controversy you'll find the whole article.
And personally I can see why they went with the Wii U.
1) Nintendo approached them and wanted to partner with the developers.
2) The inventory won't be on the screen, allowing the screen to show off all the awesomeness they made.
3) The Neverhood had some tricky sections in which you had to remember symbols from earlier in the game. The manual suggested to people to write them down, but now that we have the Wii U Ganepad it's a little more convenient if they still have said puzzles.
Of course, there is still a PC version.
