A Psychedelic 70’s folk horror, a whirlwind romance! Murder! Love! Cults! Puppets!!
Team Egg and Silver Sprocket present the animated trailer for the forthcoming graphic novel, Be Kind, My Neighbor, by celebrated indie video game creator and animator Yugo Limbo, with music by King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard.
It all begins in 1973, when cursed troubadour Wegg waltzes into the tiny country town of Baths in middle-of-nowhere America. There, he meets Mr. Neighbor, a sweet man made of cloth, who offers him company and a place to stay.
Amidst a slew of cult killings and surreal drama, their romance grows— but who is behind the ritualistic murders in town, where does Neighbor disappear to every month, and why is Wegg living as though he is on borrowed time?
Be Kind, My Neighbor shows you that sometimes the best way to conquer your past is to find a future.

They are an animator, game developer, and comic artist best known for kitschy, surreal, and goofy art, as well as the cult hit indie game Smile For Me. Their work is flavored with notes of ’60s psychedelia, ’70s European cartoons, and a pinch of folk horror—a pretty yummy stew, if you ask me!
