The "claymation" adventure title passes its Wii U stretch goal.

Armikrog, the stop-motion point-and-click adventure game from Earthworm Jim creator Douglas TenNapel, will be released on the Wii U eShop, following the climax of its month-long Kickstarter campaign.

The crowd-funding campaign raised $974,578 in donations, passing the $950,000 Wii U stretch goal set by the game's California-based developer Pencil Test Studios.

Created with a "claymation" graphical design reminiscent of TenNapel's previous game, The Neverhood, Armikrog follows the story of alien explorer Tommynaut and his blind dog sidekick BeakBeak as they become trapped in a fortress on a mysterious planet. 

Pencil Test has outlined plans for several Wii U GamePad-specific features, such as drawing on the touch screen to solve puzzles, as well as holding up the controller to scan the environment on the TV screen for hidden clues and characters.

Not going to support hate.

Instead, you'd rather support the notion that 3rd party games can't sell on Nintendo platforms.  ::)  I understand where you're coming from, but at some point you just have to accept that there are games made by unlikeable people.

Will be looking forward to this coming out :)

And as for the whole "hate" issue, it is one person out of a company.  If that is how you feel about it, I can tell you now to stop watching all movies, tv shows, eating at restaurants, or basically leaving the house because there will always be people that feel differently than you on issues out of a group that works on projects and if you want to burn them all because of one person, your going to just have a crappy time all around.

I thought this looked cool, and it's actually one of the few kickstarter projects I've ever actually backed.  I'm glad to hear that it will make it to the Wii U.
