Armikrog is an upcoming clay animation adventure game developed by Pencil Test Studios. The game will be available on PC, Apple, and Linux. It is purchasable through Steam.
You can switch between two playable characters Tommynaut and Beak-beak, each with their own traits. The two friends are trying to find a power source so that they can save their home planet by going various stages in a point and click adventure. Tommynaut is a long-armed alien who can push heavy objects while the witty blind alien dog Beak-beak can use his size and x-ray (?) vision to go through smaller spaces to help get through obstacles.
The game trailer IS AWE-SOME. I was very amused. Beak-beak could potentially be the next Groot. I am a huge fan of clay-animation, it harkens back to the days of my childhood where still-motion animation was all the rage. I appreciate the time and dedication that the creators of this game must have put into it. Can you imagine? Creating clay models and hand drawing every single action? In terms of gameplay, it really reminds of Little Big Planet but the clay animation and unique dialogue really sets it apart from all the others.
I did find Tommynaut’s voice acting a little dry but Beak-beak was on point. I am excited to try this game out, are you?
Let me know what you think Senpai~
