Crowdsourcing Spotlight - Armikrog
Today's Crowdsourcing Spotlight is on the game Armikrog. I love stop motion animation. I love point and click adventures. There is nothing about this game not too love. Seriously, I just found out about this and am ridiculously excited about it.
These are the guys who made Earthworm Jim and The Neverhood. I can't think of a better background to ask for when getting a fun and beautiful looking game made. They are bringing in the voice talents of Michael J. Nelson (MST3K, Rifftrax), Veronica Belmont (Sword and Laser, Vaginal Fantasy Book Club), Jon Heder (Napoleon Dynamite), Rob Paulsen (MY ENTIRE CHILDHOOD worth of voice work) and Scott Kurtz (creator of the PVP webcomic). I can't speak for Scott Kurtz voice talents, but seriously all of those names fill me with excitement. They even are bringing back the composer and performer of the soundtrack for The Neverhood Terry S. Taylor for this soundtrack as well.
On top of all this awesome, the game will be DRM-free. Instant seal of approval there. The stop motion animation looks gorgeous so far and since it is the same people who brought us The Neverhood and Earthworm Jim I know that the gameplay and puzzles will be fun and challenging.
It looks like with a stellar cast, a good soundtrack, beautiful animation and fun gameplay; this game is stacking up to be a big hit. IF it gets released. Please donate now to the kickstarter and let's see this game get made. Because the world needs more games like this in it.
