Armikrog is a really unique game concept that we don’t get to see much recently amongst the massive open-world RPGs and first-person shooters.
A small studio called Versus Evil fully funded Armikrog through Kickstarter, and recently, Sony announced that the game is coming to the PlayStation 4 next week. Community Director Lance James revealed in the PlayStation Blog post that Pencil Test Studios and Grip Digital will be responsible for the console version.
Every single level, every single character, and all of the things you will see in Armikrog actually existed in our tiny studio where we had to basically run through the game frame by frame — it was a major production. With the help of some amazing voice over talent including Jon Heder (Napoleon Dynamite), Rob Paulsen (Pinky and the Brain), and Michael J. Nelson (Mystery Science Theater 3000), the creative genius of musician Terry Scott Taylor who produced the game’s soundtrack, plus a volunteer team of industry experts, we were able to bring this world and its incredible characters to life.
Armikrog arrives on August 23, priced at $9.99.
