Again, he pulled this off on hardware that’s barely a calculator today. I still play SkullMonkeys every now and then on the PS3. It holds up extremely well. The humor does, too, as does its story of good vs. evil. It’s hard to put into words just how insane and fun both games are, how great the characters are, how funny they are, and how far ahead of their time both games were. And, when so many video games are excessively violent and filled with profanity, how good TenNapel’s games are.

Now, for some more good news. The same mad genius who wrote the soundtracks for both the Neverhood and SkullMonkeys, Terry Taylor, is scoring the new game too. For even more good news, TenNapel is taking suggestions for the new game from fans of the previous games.

Here’s where you come in. What would you, the Neverhood fans, want to see in a new game? We’ll read every suggestion and actually try to make all of the good ideas happen!

I. Can’t. Wait.

By the way, if you want to check out his graphic novel work, I recommend Ghostopolis and Earthboy Jacobus. TenNapel has hinted recently that the latter may be made into a movie.

Eh, EWJ was all right, but it was done what, 15+ years ago? The Neverhood is probably as cult as Psychonauts or Oddworld Odyssey was. Chances are he's going to be like the countless developers who struggled after making their big games.

The greatest video game news I could received would be that the entire original team behind Neverwinter Nights are getting back together to make Neverwinter Nights 3, and that NWN2 was being banished from memory.

Never heard of Earthworm Jim, but from the video, it looks like a platformer, which is a style of game I abhor. Different tastes, and all that.

For those like myself who prefer RPGs, I present to you this alternate 'Greatest Video Game News in the History of Video Game News':

A follow-up to one of the best cRPGs ever made, Planescape: Torment, is going to be made. There's a Kickstarter going on right now for funding and it's already raised nearly triple its goal.

While not a direct sequel, Torment: Tides of Numenera is going to explore many of the same themes as Planescape. The concept videos sound promising, so I'm looking forward to its release (tentatively) at the end of 2014.
