Fans who are looking for something unique in gaming may want to consider purchasing “Armikrog” for the PC, Mac and Linux. The point-and-click adventure game is now available for purchase and features some of the most striking visuals seen in recent memory, thanks to the use of stop motion animation and its unique character designs.

According to Game Informer, “Armikrog” was a Kickstarter project that managed to get successfully funded, with one of its selling points being the involvement of “Earthworm Jim” creator Doug TenNapel. TenNapel designed most of the game’s unique characters and is one of the reasons fans were excited about the game. The stop motion animation only helped gain fan confidence.

One other reason the game has gotten so much attention is the use of clay and puppet fabrication techniques. The game’s world and models were formed with actual clay and the puppets were used to capture the character’s movement, which really adds to the uniqueness of the title.

Fans were so impressed with the game that the Kickstarter almost made a million dollars after it was fully funded. While not as impressive as other Kickstarter games like “Broken Age," the title is a proof that this particular funding method is a very effective one.

“Armikrog” also has some credible voice actors, such as Jon Heder from “Napoleon Dynamite," Michael J. Nelson from “Mystery Science 3000” and Rob Paulsen from “Pinky and the Brain." Nelson voices for the game’s lead character Tommynaut while Paulsen lends his voice to the character’s alien dog, Beak-Beak.

Console fans will be happy to know that there are plans to bring “Armikrog” to the PlayStation 4 and the Nintendo Wii U. However, Eurogamer states that there is no definitive release date for the console port, so it looks like PS4 and Wii U users are going to have to wait a while.

The launch trailer for the game is available for viewing and can be seen below. Fans will be able to see the lovely stop motion in action and can pick the game up now if they want to. “Armikrog” costs US$24.99 (AU$35.43) across all platforms.
