Sluggish Morss looks like a surreal claymation mind melter

Sluggish Morss: Pattern Circusis the kind of thing that I never would have even thought to want before setting eyes on its trailer, but now I can't stop thinking about it. According to creator Jack King-Spooner, "every scene and character is handcrafted from clay," and the presentation is drenched in the sort of existential dread that really speaks to me.
It's not afraid to be goofy or ugly, and it seems to be striving for an unmistakably Lynchian aesthetic that we rarely see in games. The creatures shown in the trailer wriggle and squirm as if they were born from a crude children's drawing that some acid-fried adult brain latched onto and decided to make a reality.
