Armikrog is a game animated using stop-motion by Pencil Test Studios and Doug TenNapel, known for creating Earthworm Jim. The game’s Kickstarter goal of $900,000 has recently been achieved, as well as its Wii U stretch goal!
The game was originally planned for just the PC and Mac platforms, however with the help of a little bit of extra funding from the fans, the game will be finding its way to the Wii U eShop! You can check out the game’s Kickstarter page to see a few sketches detailing how the GamePad might be used for different gameplay ideas. The ideas range from the often-used inventory screen and the first person POV achieved by holding the GamePad up to the screen, as well as a new puzzle mechanic involving drawing specific shapes and lines on the GamePad.
