Neverhood spiritual successor Armikrog could come to Wii U if funded

Saturday, 22nd June 2013 20:00 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

The Neverhood spiritual successor Armikrog, which currently has four days left on Kickstarter could come to Wii U, according to an update on the funding page.

According to co-creator Mike Dietz, Nintendo expressed interest in the title last week during E3.

“We were contacted by Nintendo and we’re talking to them about the possibility of releasing Armikrog on the Wii U,” he wrote. “There’s nothing concrete to report yet, but we’re encouraged by their interest and we’d like to see it happen.”

So, should the project reach its $900,000 funding goal, it’s likely the firm will add Wii U development to the Linux, Mac and PC list.

$619,364 has been raised so far by 12,837 backers.

Thanks, Eurogamer.

    I feel conflicted about this. I loved Neverhood, but TenNapel is a raging homophobe. It’s about whether I feel okay with giving my money to support someone with those views, and whether I’ll be thinking of that every time I booted up the game. This is hard for me. It’s easy to say to separate views from works, but when you’re directly affected by something like this… it makes things less easy.

    I dunno. But it’s a good thing to make an informed decision, here. Do as you like, I won’t judge, I won’t, but… I still don’t know how I feel about this, or what I’ll do.

    God damn conflicted.

    @TheWulf is he a ‘raging homophobe’ or is he simply a christian who doesn’t support gay marriage? he’s just another human being with a different opinion than you, why would you let religion/politics get in the way of supporting an artist with a project that has absolutely nothing to do with his personal lifestyle?

    It’s better to remember thatTenNapel is just one person among the many people who are willing to work on this game. He might be the creator and he might have views we don’t agree with, but he’s only the face of this project. It’s probable that the people he’s working with just want to make a great game with him.
