Those who have been waiting to see when they'll be able to play the unique point-and-click adventure Armikrog no longer have to wonder. The Kickstarter-funded claymation adventure from Earthworm Jim creator Doug TenNapel is set to hit PC, Mac, and Linux on August 18.

To mark the occasion, Pencil Test Studios has released a trailer in the form of a vlog from the main character, Beak-Beak, who is voiced by Rob Paulsen. You can check out the video, which features several looks at gameplay, below.

Versus Evil has also announced that those who pre-order either the standard or Deluxe Edition of Armikrog will receive a 10% discount. The standard edition is set to retail for $24.99, while the Deluxe Edition, which contains the full game soundtrack by Terry Scott Taylor, will run $5 more at $29.99.

Armikrog is being created using actual clay sculpting, set building, and clay and puppet fabrication methods, giving it a unique look when combined with the stop-motion animation methods of shooting. The game is set to feature tons of humor, and serves as a spiritual successor to another claymation point-and-click adventure, The Neverhood. The game will also be appearing on PlayStation 4 and Wii U, but those versions currently do not have a release date.
