Storyline

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. Written by NeverhoodMaster

Alternate Versions

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 »

It does more than break the mould. It shatters it.
8 September 2006 | by dycaiteSee all my reviews

I'm a proud owner of an original CD-ROM of the Neverhood, and I have to say, it is one of the best games I have played to date. I first found the game when I was scuttling through an old demo CD, packed with boring games like pinball, and Ace Ventura, when I came across a game with a man made of clay. After playing ten minutes through, I set out to get a copy for myself, and ended up scoring one on eBay for 80 bucks (from Israel). This game is VERY HARD. So much so that I got to a point in the game where I thought you could go no further. So I left it for a few days and went back to playing. I was not even 1/4 of the way though the game. This game is full of adventure, fun, and humor that'll keep you glued to the computer screen for days on end. It does more than break the mould. It shatters it.

10/10
