Toejam and Earl: Back in the Groove Kickstarter!


Toejam and Earl: Back in the Groove by Humanature Studios — Kickstarter

The two original creators and owners of the ToeJam & Earl are finally creating their own game separate of any publishers telling them what they can and cant do. They’re going back to the rogue-like, stacked and randomly generated levels that the first game introduced.

This new game provides a little different art style. Where the first game was on the Sega Genesis and had to be 2D and the third game on Xbox being completely 3D, this title has 3D background with 2D characters art style similar to the “Don’t Starve” video game. The new zoom feature lets you see the stacks of levels and zooming back in to the character letting you see your progress. The kickstarter will be ending on March 27, 2015.


ToeJam and his homeboy, Big Earl go out for another joyride in their RapMaster Rocketship, and this time Peabo and Lewanda and a few other friends come along. Of course, TJ and Big E. have to take their friends to see Earth, where all the craziness started. While in orbit around Earth, TJ can’t resist showing off and pressing a mysterious new button on their ship called “Black Hole – DO NOT PRESS!”

The Earth now breaks apart in one of those Time-Warp-Black-Hole-Displacement thingies. Who could have guessed, right? Well, TJ, Big Earl, and their playable-character-friends must once again put that darned ship back together.


You will need to back the project for at least $15 to get a copy of the game. But, $5 will get you in to the credits if that’s something you want. There are lots of addons that will get you physical rewards. Check out the Kickstarter page to see all the available information!

This game will be coming to the PC, Mac and Linux systems but if they can go beyond their we can see other platform releases. The Kickstarter goal is $400,000.
