The Neverhood, the first title from Steven Spielberg’s DreamWorks multimedia division, proves an enchanting romp through an exquisitely rendered, photo-realist clay world. Creator Doug TenNapel’s attention to detail results in 3-D action so real you can almost feel each squish of the three tons of clay used in production. Although there’s an adventure plot involving the nasty Klogg (a clay mound gone awry), you’ll have a grand time just wandering through different rooms as the noodle-limbed hero, Klaymen—- a ducky-fied, barrel-chested version of that other TenNapel creation, Earthworm Jim. Granted, it’s not Wallace and Gromit, but the low-tech look of the stop-action animation gives this high-tech game a comfy feel that warrants a visit. A
