Earthworm Jim Creators Reunite for Armikrog, Release Date Announced
The creators of Earthworm Jim reunite for the claymation-based point-and-click adventure game, Armikrog.
Pencil Test Studios posted a new trailer for Armikrog, a stop motion adventure game filled with all kinds of personalities. Pencil Test Studios' founders Ed Schofield and Mike Dietz teamed up with Doug TenNapel to work on Armikrog. The interesting thing is that they all worked together years ago on Earthworm Jim and The Neverhood. Armikrog focuses around Tommynaut, who is voiced by Michael J. Nelson of Mystery Science Theater 3000 fame. Tommynaut is a space explorer who ends up in a strange world and incarerated in the Armikrog fortress.
In order to escape, Tommynaut is going to need the help of Beak-Beak, his color blind dog. Beak-Beak is voiced by Rob Paulsen, who you might remember as Pinky from Pinky and the Brain, Raphael in the 1987 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles animated series and Donatello in the 2012 reboot. He was also Mighty Max. Napolean Dynamite himself, Jon Heder, is also on the game's roster, but his role has yet to be revealed. With such a noteworthy cast and development team, we can't wait to get our hands on this imaginative title. We're certainly digging Armikrog's visual style that looks more like a claymation movie than a video game.
Armikrog is going to launch on Aug. 18 for PC. The game will be available for $24.99 and has a deluxe edition that features its soundtrack for $29.99. Pre-ordering the game gets you a 10 percent discount.
