Who else remembers playing ToeJam & Earl on Sega Genesis in the 90’s? Well after a successful Kickstarter and Adult Swim, they are back with some of that classic fun with their new game ToeJam and Earl: Back in the Groove coming in 2017. Be sure to head over to Steam to check out more on the game.
Yo! Check it out… ToeJam and Earl are back on Earth once again, getting funky and running from those crazy Earthlings. Deja vu! (deja vu!) Here’s the basics… TJ decides it’s a good idea to “borrow” the Rapmaster Rocketship from Lamont (no point waking him up, right?), so he and Big E. can take Latisha and Lewanda out for a joyride. While they’re in orbit around Earth, maybe showing off just a little, TJ tells Earl to crank the bass on the speakers and “Press the RED button!” Unfortunately, that’s the button that says: “Black Hole – Do Not Press!!” (Doh!) You can pretty much guess the rest, TJ and Earl once again find themselves searching for the pieces of their Rocketship, collecting power-up presents left lying around by Santa, and dealing with the less-than-rational human beings.
Back in the Groove is a mash-up of the very best features from the classic console games (that’s one and two, y’all), with a pile of new features thrown in. The goal is to give old skool TJ & E fans a pure blast of funky nostalgia, and give new players a taste of the light-hearted, co-op play that is TJ & E.
Nine playable characters including: TJ and E, Latisha, Lewanda, GeekJam, Peabo, and Earl’s mom, Flo.
Randomly generated stacked levels, just like game one, but now you can see down!
Lots of secret locations (yes level 0 is there too!), and new terrain types.
A TON of funky music. 13 remakes of old favorite songs and 13 new songs in the same old skool funky style.
A dynamic split-screen for couch co-op play, as well as online play – supports up to 4 players!
Randomly generated, improved Hyperfunk Zone allows for multi-player co-op too!
A huge number of new presents, Earthlings, player character stats, character-specific dialogue, permanent power-hats, and many features that enhance cooperative play and make this the best Toejam and Earl yet!
