Pencil Test Studio's claymation point-and-click adventure title Armikrog is available now. The launch trailer showcases the title's intriguing blend of stop-motion animation and classic adventure gameplay.

Based on characters created by Earthworm Jim creator Doug TenNapel, the Kickstarter-funded title stars Tommynaut, a space explorer, and his blind talking dog Beak-Beak. The pair must escape the fortress Armikrog after crash-landing on an alien planet.

The game's most unique element is that its world and models are constructed from actual clay and animated using traditional puppet fabrication techniques. Bringing the cast to life are the vocal talents of Jon Heder (Napoleon Dynamite), Rob Paulsen (Pinky and The Brain), and Michael J. Nelson (Mystery Science 3000)

You can purchase Armikrog for PC, Mac, and Linux for $24.99 and a $29.99 deluxe version that includes a soundtrack by Terry Scott Taylor. PlayStation 4 and Wii U versions are in the works, but have no specified release windows.
