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.
Nester the Lark: Also, I know YL isn't into speedruns, but he might be interested to know that RPG Limit Break is having a Gust marathon all weekend, including several Atelier games.

nocturnal YL: Ah… Bad timing. I didn't read this until now, when it's almost over.

Nester the Lark: Well, if you're still interested, they'll be uploading the replays to their YouTube channel later this week.

Shrikeswind: I like that Mayles put her back in her kneepads. What's the last game they were in? One of the Kongas? It was a good look for her, albeit very 90's.

Shrikeswind: The jokes call to me, their siren song a temptation I can hardly bear, yet I must stay my tongue. Confound my dirty sense of humor.

Nester the Lark: The replies I see to anything Nintendo posts on Twitter are probably an indication as to why they abandoned Miiverse and decided that social media should be someone else's responsibility.

nocturnal YL: As mentioned in Twitter, I'm currently playing Atelier Meruru DX. I'm thinking about writing reviews for the Arland series afterwards, as well as making a second Nintendo Switch review video after I finish either this or my next game.

Nester the Lark: ^ I would be interested in seeing your reviews of the Arland games.

Nester the Lark: So, there's been Hyrule Warriors and Fire Emblem Warriors. But guys, how about this: Punch-out Warriors! It's like Punch-out, but you fight all of your opponents at once!

Shrikeswind: Sounds punchy, but unless it's a real knock-out I don't think it'd be a hit.

Shrikeswind: You know, you'd figure eventually I'd get a hang of the whole "personal tradition" thing. You'd figure.
