Armikrog. Kickstarter - a game done with stop-motion animation
 
http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1949537745/armikrog

I wasn't going to post this, but the kickstarter for this game is coming into its final stretch of 38 hours and $113,000 left to finish. It looks creative and pretty cool, so I decided to go ahead and post here, bringing just a tiny bit more exposure.

Copy-paste from Steam Greenlight page:

"Armikrog is a brand new clay-animated point and click adventure game brought to you by the creators of the Neverhood and Earthworm Jim
Armikrog, while not a sequel, is already being called by many a spiritual successor to the Neverhood as it's being developed by the same core creative group with the same passion and dedication to blurring the lines between art and technology in a video game. Featuring the unique characters and signature art style of creator Doug TenNapel, the magical appeal of stop motion animation, and the musical genius of Neverhood composer Terry S. Taylor, Armikrog promises to be a game that will deliver on the enjoyable challenge, whimsy and humor that made the Neverhood accessible to such a wide audience.

Armikrog tells the story of a space explorer named Tommynaut and his blind, alien, talking dog Beak-Beak, who crash land on a strange planet and find themselves trapped within the walls of a fantastic, mystical fortress called Armikrog. Players will need to solve an array of entertaining and mind-bending puzzles to help Tommynaut out of his predicament, and will quickly discover that the epic Armikrog is much more than simply a fortress from which they must escape.

Armikrog is being developed by Pencil Test Studios (founded by Neverhood and Earthworm Jim alumni Ed Schofield and Mike Dietz) in partnership with creator Doug TenNapel. We are currently running a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds for development..."

If it's made by the Earthworm Jim team (the good, 2-d one not the n64 effort...) then it will shape up to be a nice offbeat game with varied arcade action. Who doesn't want to rescue princess whatshername?

It's much closer to The Neverhood, but it will still have Earthworm Jim's cartoonish look in 3D and the sense of wackiness.
