Interested in a new Toejam and Earl game?

Well, there's a kickstarter campaign from one of the original co-creators for a new entry in the series. (The other co-creator left the video game scene.) The game would be like a direct sequel, gameplay-wise, to the original game in the series.

Kickstarter link: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects...ref=nav_search

If you've never had the magic of playing the Toejam and Earl games, both of them are on Steam for five bucks each.

Mrs Relayer would be utterly delighted with this. As long as it's nothing like the 3rd one.

She's already excited.

TJ&E III was an abomination, so colour me not-too-excited.

The publishers for TJ&E3 had some mandates -- like they wanted it to be edgier, an over-the-shoulder camera, and I've never seen it confirmed, but I'm pretty certain Latisha was a mandate.(I brought Latisha up on the comments section of the Kickstarter and only one person responded by saying "We don't use the L-word here.") Panic on Funkotron was actually mandated by Sega to be a platformer -- they had originally wanted it to be like the original.

This is going to be an indie game, so Greg and his team can do whatever they want.

That sounds good, then again, a lot of Kickstarters do

The 2nd and 3rd games were awful.
