The standard edition will be $24.99 USD and the deluxe will be priced at $29.99 USD. The deluxe edition features the full game soundtrack by composer Terry Scott Taylor just for those die-hard fans. Armikrog will be available on PC, Mac and Linux at launch and can be found on Steam, GOG and numerous other digital distribution sites.
What is Armikrog, anyway?
Utilizing classic sculpting, set building and clay & puppet fabrication methods combined with stop-motion animation, Armikrog is one of the most unique-looking point and click titles set to be released in recent memory. Very similar in style to the classic, fan-favorite title The Neverhood, Doug TenNapel has joined up with Pencil Test Studios and musical composer Terry Scott Taylor to bring the immense charm and style of that title to Armikrog.
Following the exploits of Tommynaut and his sidekick BeakBeak, travel with them through bizarre alien worlds as they are imprisoned in a mysterious fortress and solve puzzle to help them make their escape.
So Raptors, what do you think of Armikrog? Were you a fan of The Neverhood or other TenNapel titles?
