Armikrog Finds Publisher In Versus Evil

We first heard word of Armikrog, a point and click claymation adventure game developed by Mike Dietz and Ed Schofield (the guys behind such classic games as Earthworm Jim and the Neverhood) last year when its Kickstarter managed to garner nearly a million dollars for the game’s developer, Pencil Test Studios. Just today, however, the game has finally been picked up by indie game publisher Versus Evil, who will bring the game to PC, Mac and Linux platforms early next year.

“We’re very excited to be working with the team at Versus Evil,” said Mike Dietz, Pencil Test’s co-founder. “Having successfully gone through the challenges of securing Kickstarter funding for Armikrog, we focused all our efforts on developing the game. After chatting to Versus Evil, it quickly became clear that they were not only the right fit for us on a personal level, but that they also had the publishing experience we needed to help launch Armikrog globally”.

Armikrog tells the whimsical story of space explorer Tommynaut and his blind, alien dog Beak Beak as they crash land on a strange, alien world and become lost in the mysterious fortress known as Armikrog. Supplying voices to these oddball characters are such well known actors as John Herder (Napoleon Dynamite), Michael J Nelson (MST3K), and Rob Paulson (Voice of the Brain in the animated series Pinky and the Brain).

My name is Nicole Seraphita and I’m 27. I’ve been gaming since the days of the NES and have owned at least one system from each generation since then. My favorite type of games if most definitely RPGs, with my favorites being titles like Chrono Cross, Persona 4, and Tales of Xillia, though I also sometimes dabble in platforming games, fighting games, and visual novels. When I’m not writing for APGNation or playing games, I enjoy table top and card games, watch anime, and write fiction that I occasionally publish online. I tend to write a lot of Sci-fi and the occasional bit of fantasy, with the often overlooked sub-genre of Biopunk being my favorite. I’ve also written a few visual novels, though only one of them has made it all the way to completion thus far. My current dream is to be able to bring the Monster Girl genre to a western audience.

Have your say!
