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.
Shrikeswind: I'm reminded why I don't bother with that. I had the luxury of easy-to-grab screenshots and it still took literal hours to finish that post.

Nester the Lark: Let's not talk about me and sanity.

Shrikeswind: Very well, we shall talk of other things, like shoes and ships and sealing wax, and cabbages and kings, and why the sea is boiling hot, and whether pigs have wings.

Shrikeswind: It strikes me that perhaps I should not be mentioned in the same breath as sanity myself.

Boo Destroyer: RuneScape.... I haven't heard that name in a long, long time.

Shrikeswind: I still play. Matter of fact, I'm currently playing. It actually just came out with a new skill this past March, if you can believe it.

nocturnal YL: In a way, I'm glad I'm unrelated to those fan communities of the games I play. I just sit back and play games casually, not really caring whatever scandals or elitism or holier-than-thou attitudes going on.

Shrikeswind: I think I need to track down some horribly cursed Pokemon content now after that. You know, since that was such a heavy topic to drop in the middle of a quiet forum.

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.
