Claymation RPG Hylics 2 is out now

Today has brought the launch of Hylics 2, sequel to the 2015 RPG with the best spellcasting animations in the genre. Made with a mix of clay models and stop-motion animation, it is such a looker.

Hylics Is Basically Videodrome: The Game

God, just look at this game. Like a scene from Bosch by way of Videodrome, Hylics [official site] is a weird, 2D game from indie developer Mason Lindroth - a familiar face on the Ludum Dare scene.
