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 Bil, 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.
Embark on a clay adventure that really breaks the mold.

Klaymen is misspelled as "Klaymeb" in one of Willie's letters. This might or might not be deliberate, since Willie is a pretty dumb character. See more
It all start with Hoborg, a being who had to create, because... he had to. He make the world full of beauty and wonder. This world, the Neverhood, a world where he could live forever and ever more!
The game had two unofficial Russian releases. Both took unique approaches to translating the enormous amount of text inscribed on the Hall of Records (an affectionate Bible parody describing the backstory of the game's universe). One version replaces the stories with the game's walkthrough guide. The other replaces the text with random Russian and Soviet cultural jokes, anecdotes and references to Tuborg beer. See more
