Give some fucking love to the Indie Games thread, that's where I got this info from and Musiol! :D
Facebook: The Neverhood
Through the years Neverhood fans have asked for another game, and I'm partnering with my EWJ and Neverhood buddies Mike Dietz and Ed Schofield to make a full sized, PC and Mac point and click adventure game in clay and puppet animation. New characters, but in my usual style. Terry Taylor is doing the music. Here's where you come in. What would you, the Neverhood fans, want to see in a new game? We'll read every suggestion and actually try to make all of the good ideas happen! Now it's your turn:
Started on Twitter:
Pencil Test Studios is the animation company founded in 2009 by Mike Dietz (Aladdin, Earthworm Jim) and Ed Schofield who worked on Neverhood.
Neverhood (1996, PC) was my absolutely favorite game from childhood along with Jazz the Jackrabbit and Prince of Persia. It still has one of the best soundtracks in a game, thanks to Terry S. Taylor. The Hall of Records is one of the greatest and nonsensically detailed codices in a game ever.
The only other game I know that uses claymation and is a point-and-click adventure is The Dream Machine which is pretty awesome too and you should give it a go.
I'm guessing a Kickstarter is soon in the making.
