Neverhood, The The Neverhood Inc. / Dreamworks Interactive / Microsoft Game Studios 1996

This is a unique clay-animated adventure. Born into a Neverhood that may never exist, Klaymen explores a land of Terrifying Creatures, Extraordinary Machines, and Mysterious Artifacts. Long ago the king of this world was betrayed by his trusted assistant. You must save the Neverhood by navigating Klaymen through a twisted plot of ancient secrets, witty inventions and monstrous puzzles to outwit your nasty foe. To unearth the truth, you must find and view 20 short videodiscs that have been scattered throughout this world, while solving a variety of puzzles as you go. The puzzles are not all that difficult if you are really observant about what you see and hear on your trek, and besides, there's a built-in hint system within the game that you discover right away. It's located where we all do our best thinking, in the 'John', and there you can always find inspiration about what to do next, written on sheets of toilet paper. The brilliant and bizarre full screen graphics are, quite simply, amazing, and both the movements and the facial expressions of the endearing characters seem absolutely real. The music in the game is rhythmic, funky and warped, with totally indecipherable vocals, and yet it's the kind of music that you find that you're tapping your feet to. Apparently over 3 tons of clay and frame-by-frame hand positioning of the characters was required to create the world depicted in the artwork.
