1.wake up clay man by clicking on any thing in the room.

2.then if you want to push the button on the back wall to open the window ... click on the window to see your yard after that prosed to the next part. click on that leaver on the wall notice the huge hammer comes crashing down and crumples the dore a little. click it 2 more times to rip the dore of its hinges. walk out of the room.

Step 2: Get Out of Your House

Picture of Get Out of Your House

1. click off of the platform you are standing on : clayman will fall strait into the "venous fly trap",but thats ok noting will happen the fly trap will just spit you out.

2. now that your down go by the latter behind the fly trap push him over all the way till he is strait under the 4th ring then stop. click on the 4th ring and the fly trap will grab it and hold it there.

4.notice there is a button on the dore if you push it you will be punched in the face by a big boxing glove. witch dose nothing to harm you but if your doing a speed run it will set you back a few seconds lol.

5.pull the 5th ring ad you will here a cow bell ring only pull it once or you will mess something later in the game up.

Step 3: Finde Your Way Around the Naborhood

Picture of Finde Your Way Around the Naborhood

1.walk FORWARD once. then turn to the RIGHT until a red and yellow building with a narrow brown front door. then walk FORWARD again

2.once your in walk down the stairs there should be a rotating fan on the ceiling and a cartridge on the flore pick it up

3.there is a slide puzzle on the back wall it kinda just looks like a box so click on it...

4.the object of this puzzle is to try to make a H out of all the parts.

here is a diagram of the puzzle

1. 2. 3.
4. 5. 6.
7. 8. 9.

and this is the sequence you must press the pieces of the puzzle in one more thing you shouldn't need this part as I have done it multiple times without a guide when I was 6 ,7 ,or 8 years old.

5, 8, 9, 6, 3, 2, 5, 8, 9, 6, 5, 8, 9, 6, 3, 2, 1, 4, 5, 2, 1, 4, 7, 8, 5, 2, 1, 4, 5, 8, 7, 4, 1, 2, 5, 4, 7, 8, 5, 4, 1, 2, 3, 6, 5, 8, 9, 6, 3, 2, 5, 8, 9, 6, 5, 2, 3, 6, 9, 8.

5.ok now that you finished that puzzle go through the dore it opens. this room you will find a "tv screen" and a "cartridge"click on the cartridge to pick it up then go to the screen to watch what you've got so far. (the more cartridges you get the te longer the video will be). note you need all the cartridges to get one of the keys.

pic 1. the house
pic 2. the door way

Step 4: The Long Walk

Picture of The Long Walk

1.ok click on the small hole on the other side of the room.

2.once you enter you will notice this room is a giant dark hall way so turn on the lights and make it in to a giant light hall way. Now that its light ,walk to the right a couple of screens once you see a screen that has some spikes on the wall that means your at the right spot to pick up the "glass"now press the button on the wall to open the spikes ,and Now walk into to the room beyond the spikes. will go down a ways till you get to a little basement there is a leaver and a button push the button then pull the leaver. there will be a little animation on the wall of the cavern of "bill" getting his head blown of by a cannon with you must do later on in this guide. that you pushed the button step on the elevator and click on the hole above.

5.ok now go back to the light switch at the beginning of the screen and turn it off.

6. go back to the spiked wall and go back down to the basement.

7. oooooooooo green glowy lights but whats the point in the lights... there for positioning of the canon so right it down.

note you dont have to be an artist to draw these that you have them written down go up the elevator.

9. now walk to the right almost 40 screens!!! btw I hate this part if you type "fastforward" then hit enter  you will hear a litle sound effect and then you will be walking around 4x the speed.

10. then come back

one time I read the walls its a pretty creative story if you like fiction you would like to reed it... it explains some of the game a little too.

Step 5: Mouse Puzzle/maze

Picture of Mouse Puzzle/maze

ok follow the picture if you don't under stand contact me.

takes 10 clicks of the mouse to do the hardest puzzle of the game get that.

if you want to know the story of this map one day I was having a hard time beating
the "mouse puzzle" as i call I got a huge piece of paper ,and I drew out every
hole and after a while I figured out how to do it! so i copied the all the lines needed
to a small piece of paper and got this.

I also figured out that this is an actual map lol

this game is so much fun... my dad got it for me when i was young i only complated it last year with no help ^^ its realy hard, funny ,weird,cool,and intresting it is soooooo good . nice to see other people have herd off it

the_burrito_master (author)rug2010-08-15

it is just that, this is the best game i have ever played in my in my child hood. but i think I've played guitar hero more :(

rug (author)the_burrito_master2010-08-18

ive got to agree with u

rug (author)2010-08-13

my freind once read everything on the wall at the long walk wall so funny because i knew u didnt have to but i didnt tell him lol

the_burrito_master (author)rug2010-08-15

I did once it was a nifty story, you should read it.

rug (author)the_burrito_master2010-08-18

ok i will when i have the time

jadobbins (author)2009-06-27

This puzzle is actually much, much easier than this. The mouse always knows what direction the cheese is in. Just always go through whatever door he's facing. It will always lead him to the cheese.

yeah that's what some one else said I just figured that out not to long ago. but this map shows you exactly. it makes it much much faster if you know where to go.

Sergeant Crayon (author)2007-12-12

I've played this game through at least 10 times!
You haven't lived until you get the satisfaction of getting all of the movie tiles!
Or watching the monster explode!
Too bad your only about half way through....

I just played it through one more time today. lol

hey u seem to know alot about the game so ima ask were is the mouse game at and plz don't say at the end of that monster long hallway lol

The mouse game is between two buildings later on in the game. (Between a giant piece of bread and a building made of butter I believe.) Truth be told, I'm not exactly sure because I haven't played in over a year. If you can't find it, you're not far enough, it is directly in your way.

no it's not at the end of the monster long hall way but there is a VITAL cartridge there. so yes go walk it out. The mouse puzzle is about 3/4th into the game I can get there in 1 hour.

There was a demo with just the first level on some Windows 98 Plus disc we had. I thought it was the coolest game ever, but I've not been able to find the full version for less than $80. Any suggestions on sources?

well this game isn't broken in to levels ,but i know what you mean. nope don't know of any where to get it besides having my cousin burn it for you and me.

my freind burned it for me lol

cool how do you like it!

its awsome, but i got stuc at some spiral thingie

do you meen the purple cave with the spirals on it? if it is I can help you with that.

I don't remember, it was like 2 months ago. you were in this car type thing and you had to do something in the middle, like press a button or something. I don't know, it wouldn't let me

oh that part (the line is a track) you click on it a little at a time and he will go around till he gets to the center.

oooohhh. ok. jeez i feel so stupid. "embarrasing moment"

he he he yeah I don't think my older brothers new ether for a while.

I could give it to you now that I have it... maybe.

Sergeant Crayon (author)snoyes2007-12-12

Ya, sorry man. I've had it for as long as I can remember (Don't know where I got it) Too bad they never made another one, probably cause of the gargantuan budget needed. (watch the "Making Of" video)

no I have played this game through at least 7 times too i'm just not done with the guide yet.

DannyboyINXS (author)2007-12-29

OMFG I SOO REMEMBER THIS GAME WHEN I WAS LIKE 7 OR SOMETHING story goes, me and my dad were walking into a computer store to get quake: deathmatch maker or something i think it might have been mission pack 2: disollution of eternity, but anyway, i went to play this game on the computer kiosk, and i remember being stuck on the 1st bit, when u gotta get out the door while hanging onto the rope being 7, i tried repeatedly to hang on, jump off and run like mad for the door, but it kept on closing, so here i was in a frustrating situation, and this nice guy comes along and tells me that u gotta move some thing under it to hold it down, what a nice guy.... well thats about all i remember of that game lol worth a comment

cool I'm glad my not done instructable brought back a memory.:)

yeah.... hope u finish ur instructable soon aye man

i don't know if I'm going to finish it there are so many guides already and every one that has the game has beaten it 20 times.

the_burrito_master (author)2007-12-28

ok well I have the game now and I just finished beating it! all thanks to kontrastas!

phreek (author)2007-12-18

Wow, I have never actually found someone else who has heard of this game. It came with one of my old computers. Alot of the design was by Doug Tennaples who also did alot of the album art for Five Iron Frenzy, which happens to be my all time favorite band. Also, the whole game (including the enormous story on the wall) is a giant allusion to the fall of man as portrayed in the Bible.

Whaleman (author)phreek2007-12-19

My dad gave me the demo, and he bought me the full version last Christmas, so I like it. He also has the soundtrack, I think he enjoys it......

burn me a copy plese!!!

I don't know how I would do that, but I might be able to tell you where he got the soundtrack.....

thats ok I might get a copy soon.

He says he doesn't remember where he got it, but I think you could get it off of the official site, if it is still running....

its not runnin any more :( hasn't for about 4 years.

I like five iron frenzy too ,yeah it dose ,but I cant remember it that well all I rely only remember it the hoborg willie and bill part.

kontrastas (author)2007-12-26

Great game, but to be honest, your instructable does not even cover 5% of the game and it lacks fluency, i mean the mouse puzzle is almost at the end of Neverhood while the long walk and the others mentioned are at the very beginning. Not trying to insult you or anything, but there are many complete Neverhood guides (walkthroughs) on the net already and it's not like you can add something new.. Perhaps you should consider spending your time on something else?

yeah I don't think I'm going to continue I don't even have the game so its hard to do. maybe I'll just delete it.

phreek (author)2007-12-18

Also, on the puzzle with the mouse holes, just follow which direction the mouse's nose is pointing, walk him by the holes and whichever hole he points his nose toward is the next one he needs to go through.

rely? i didnt know that lol

MerleCorey (author)2007-12-12

The neverhood was an insanly neat game. So neat that it itself was insane. It was made entirely of clay and featured music by cult folkist Terry Taylor. The songs are worth searching for cause they really are jems.

Quote: "one time I read the walls its a pretty creative story if you like fiction you would like to reed it... it explains some of the game a little too."
--That was an awesome story. It explained nothing about getting out of being stuck.
Oh yeah and didnt the ahem "mouse puzzle as you call it change?
I kind of wish I didnt stop downloading torrents cause i know this is out there somewhere.

yeah I know all about that stuff no the mouse puzzle dosen't change every time you play it. I have used my guide 3 or 4 times :) torrents?

GorillazMiko (author)2007-12-12

i have never seen this game before, looks fun though

MerleCorey (author)GorillazMiko2007-12-12

LOL.... Is this guy a real person or a bot he thinks everything is cool....always first to say it..... hmmm j/k The neverhood was an insanly neat game. So neat that it itself was insane. It was made entirely of clay and featured music by cult folkist Terry Taylor. The songs are worth searching for cause they really are jems.

wow that was fast just published it a few minutes ago. yeah its a fun game its my favorite
