There's a Kickstarter for a new Toejam & Earl game! I'm really excited for this, the first TJ&E was my favourite Mega Drive game, and this is the first time the creator's had a chance to make a real sequel to it without any meddling from publishers trying to make the game more mainstream.
This is also by far the best Kickstarter announcement trailer I've seen so far.
They're just aiming for PC right now, but he talked about Wii U and 3DS (among others) versions further down the line.

I'm interested, but I've never played a TJ&E game before, so I don't really have anything to say. I'm always glad to see classic franchises get revived by their original creators, tho. I hope this turns out to the game that fans have been waiting for.
Ah well. It's really good if you have somebody to play it with. I listened to an interview the other day where Greg Johnson said that part of the design of the original game was down to him wanting to make a game that friends could chill out and chat to. I haven't played another game since that's better for that kind of situation.
If anybody out there is thinking of backing it, they just added stretch goals.
And made it easier to get the backer rewards you want.
I dropped $250 on it, so I'm already getting all of that stuff anyway.
