You are running Adblock...
We're really sorry for the inconvenience, but please would you disable your ad-blocker? Our adverts are relevant and non-intrusive, they appear only at the top and the sides, never in the content. They don't include auto-playing audio either, they really won't spoil your enjoyment of the site. Thank you in advance!
Want to see this appeal go away forever? Support us on Patreon and we'll make that happen! Click the button on the left to find out more.
"I'm not running an ad-blocker!" - Refresh/reload the page, if you still see the panda or have other problems then click here to contact us immediately, thanks.
"Why are you doing this?" - Frankly we're struggling to make ends meet here especially since the site got more popular. The only way we can think to cover our costs is to run ads, but if so many of you keep blocking them...
"But I never click ads!" - Doesn't matter, you should only click them if they interest you. We get paid based on the number of views AND the number of clicks.
"You ruined the site!!!1! I want to send you hate mail!!" - Sure, click here.
Another fact - We have the software and the power to completely block adblock users from our site, but we're not going to, at least for now. We figure most of you would like to support us and you only installed Adblock because of other sites that aren't so considerate with their ad placement. Please, don't punish us because of them, in the seven or so years I've been a blogger/webmaster I've ALWAYS considered the need to balance monetisation with reader experience. I want to build an audience not send them away.
So go on, whitelist us and any other site you love. If it wasn't for ads, the internet would lose a whole chunk of really great niche content like this, which would be a real shame in our opinion.
Now, go ahead and read the page if you want to, but wouldn't it be much more convenient if you just whitelisted us? :)
Critically acclaimed upon release but largely overlooked by the game-buying public, this curious little claymation adventure game has become something of a cult classic. In the game, you’ll guide the unlikely hero Klaymen around the bizarre Neverhood, solving puzzles and helping your fellow pliable pals as you go. The games unique clay animation visuals and excellent soundtrack have aged extremely well and it’s a shame that this particular title finds itself languishing in copyright limbo, unlikely to be re-released any time soon. For any adventure game fans that are lucky enough to find a copy of the game on e-bay or at a garage sale, you will be delighted to know that, despite its age, The Neverhood will run perfectly on a modern PC.
We did not encounter any problems installing the game on our Windows 8 x64 test machine. Simply insert The Neverhood CD-ROM into your computer and run the “SETUP 95” program. The games installer will then run and allow you to install the game anywhere on your PC.
If you do have difficulties installing the game, there is a replacement installer available at the Neverhood Restoration Project. We tested this installer and it didn’t seem to offer anything any different to the original, but it may help in some circumstances. You can download the replacement installer here.
Running the game
Surprisingly for a game that is so old, The Neverhood runs extremely well on modern systems. The game must be run as an administrator (the programs shortcut will ask for administrator access anyway) and for best results you may want to disable any secondary monitors you have attached to your PC. Don’t be tempted to alt-tab from the game to check your e-mail or the web either, if you do so the game will either crash or display in corrupted colours.
Audio stuttering on the intro – During the intro movie, the audio may stutter/periodically cut out. There is currently no known workaround for this, but the audio in-game seems to perform correctly.
