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

Goofs

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 »

Quotes

[Klaymen puts on the crown]
Klogg: Yes. YES! He bought it! I win! AA HA HA HAAAAA!
Evil Klaymen: [Klaymen turns evil and suddenly resembles Klogg. He grabs Klogg by the shirt and punches him]
Evil Klaymen: I am the ruler of this world now. EE HEE HEE HA HA HAAAA!

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 »

Fanciful game for Windows done with Claymation
17 November 2001 | by broidoj-2See all my reviews

The Neverhood is, in my humble opinion, the best puzzle game for the IBM PC platform ever developed. It was developed by Doug TenNapel and company and took years to produce. There is mischief but very little violence. It is most definitely not a shoot-em-up, nor is it tame. The music, which reminds one of Leon Redbone on Lysergic Acid Diethylamide, is worth the effort of finding a used copy of this long out-of-print title from 1996.
