Long ago, a mysterious being known as Hoborg created a world called the Neverhood, made entirely of an odd substance known as "Klay." However, Hoborg was lonely and, using a mystical "life seed", created a "Klay man" that he called Klogg. Klogg was evil, however, and stole Hoborg's mystical crown,which was his secret to life; without it, he fell into a deep sleep! Luckily, Willie Trombone and his pal, Big Robot Bill, used a "life seed" to create Klaymen. Now, Klaymen must journey throughout the mysterious world that is the Neverhood, solve puzzles, dethrone Klogg, revive Hoborg from his long sleep, and save the Neverhood! Written by NeverhoodMaster

A challenging game with fun stuff
15 October 1999 | by (Long Island, New York) – See all my reviews

If you are good at memory puzzles and into a game that is all clay you will like this game. This game is action packed and a little bit comedy to make the setting. If you are able to beat the game you can chose two endings a good one or a bad one. Overall it is a good game and you should but it.
