A PlayStation port of ''The Neverhood'' was released exclusively in Japan, under the title ''Klaymen Klaymen: Neverhood no Nazo,'' where the game [[GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff became unexpectedly popular]]. This eventually led to an unofficial GaidenGame, ''Klaymen Gun Hockey'', made by the the Japanese publishers, River Hill Soft, and not released outside Japan.

The game's developers, also known as The Neverhood, produced two other clay-animated games for the PlayStation before disbanding: ''VideoGame/{{Skullmonkeys}}'', a sequel to ''The Neverhood'' but in a [[GenreShift different genre]], and the FightingGame ''Boombots'', unconnected to their other games aside from the presence of Klaymen as a GuestFighter. The game's SpiritualSuccessor, ''VideoGame/{{Armikrog}}'', was released on September 30, 2015.

* NarrativeFiligree: The majority of the Hall of Records, which was removed from the PlayStation version. The only part with any real relevance to the story is Hoborg's section, and even then, Willie's videos tell you all you need to know. However, it ''does'' explain some of the things from the sequel--mainly, the Skullmonkeys and the Ynts. Everything else, though, is mostly just extraneous world-building.

* OverlyLongGag: The Hall of Records. Emphasis on [[WallsOfText "hall"]]. Although the records themselves can constitute an OverlyLongGag at points, especially in the bits that parody Literature/TheBible. Also, try eating the fruit on that one tree in the music box area. Try it a few times for good measure.

** MeaningfulName: Klogg. Which is pronounced like "clog". Hoborg was ''going'' to create more friends for him and Klogg, but since Klogg [[spoiler: stole Hoborg's crown, which he needed to be alive and moving]], all further creations by Hoborg are stopped up.
