Toejam & Earl

New Toejam & Earl in The Works?!

Toejam & EarlHey all, I read the other day on the Facebook page of Toejam & Earl that the developers are working on making a new game!

This awesome news has given me further encouragement to kick off my blog once again, I’ve had the urge for quite some time, but hadn’t had anything good to talk about.

Here is the quote from the the Facebook page, straight from HumaNature’s mouths:

Greetings from Funkotron! We haven’t been posting as often lately because we’ve gotten really busy with the new TJ&E game. We will be making some announcements in a probably 3 or 4 weeks, when we have something we can show, and will be able to share lots of information with you.

Did you hear that?, 3-4 weeks and we’ll know more information on the upcoming title, I personally can’t wait to find out more, and I know one or two people who will feel the same way, if not, more excited about this news!

They also posted some concept art, though it seems rather rudimentary if you ask me, so either they’re not very far along in development yet, or they really just like drawing their ideas and making people guess what it will look like. Either way, here they are:

The original title started as a 2D side-scrolling platforming game where you had the task of rebuilding your space-craft after it crash landed by collecting pieces to it scattered all over the globe

They then made a 3D version in the early 2000’s , where these cool aliens would also collect presents, records and keys to unlock more areas, which was still very fun.

I’m going to take a guess that this one will also be 3D based and feature a very similar game-play style as the last one they made which was Toejam and Earl III: Mission to Earth, although I’m hoping they have the space-craft crash this time so they need to rebuild it as they did in the 2D version.

Also, in reading through the comments on the Facebook page, the developers have replied a few times stating that they’re aiming at creating the same feeling as the original Sega Mega Drive version, so it may very well be a 2D scroller after all, which would be really awesome too, especially if it’s a 2.5D version

Anyway, I hope you enjoyed this post from me, I’ll make a new post on this in a few weeks when more information is presented to us, feel free to make comments to discuss your nostalgic memories of Toejam & Earl – Thanks for reading!

    Woah, really?

    This is your first post and I’m already intrigued, I loved ToeJam & Earl in Panic on Funkotron (that name tho). Used to be one of my favorite Sega Genesis games back in the day. Had no idea this was possibly in the works.

    If this is indicative of the quality of future posts from you, then that’s damn good. Keep posting about stuff that I would be pleasantly surprised to learn about and we’ll be good.

      Haha, yeah Ralph, I was 90% sure you would have known about this before me!

      Yeah you’re the one I was meaning in the article about people I know that will be interested in this, I know you’re a huge TJ&E lover.

      Thanks man, glad you like it, I will try my best to keep it up. It helps to surprise you if you keep yourself in the dark about pretty much everything, k thx!
