Kormann posted a topic in Other GamesHello guys, if you loved the golden era of Sega Mega-Drive Genesis or you like coop and comedy games you should Back this project. ToeJam & Earl fans unite! This time Sega won't be publishing this game, as indies it now depends on us funding the creators and real owners of this game (Greg Johnson and Mark Voorsanger) with Kickstarter. The game revisits the format of the original game, featuring 2D character models on 3D worlds with overhead perspective, and is planned to support local coop and online multiplayer up to 4 players. It will feature old and new earthlings (enemies), presents (items) and added gameplay mechanics: - Some multiplayer only presents like "switch bodies" as it says, switch the players positions so it can be a good or bad thing; - Cooperative moves like Toejam going over the shoulder of Earl and use a tomatoe machinegun; - Each character will have it's unique stats so the gameplay from a character to another will be a different experience; - There will be hats that you can wear to boost your stats; - You can improve your character, some of the items can be carried between game sessions; - There will be rhythm gameplay like toejam & earl 2 and if reaches the stretch goal, they will add the Hyperfunk Zone too. - And much more... The game will be DRM-Free as promised by the devs. Short animated music video promoting the game Fan testimonials video about Toejam and Earl Toejam and Earl was a hit in 1991, an action game that was beyond it's time, was one of the first roguelike games, had random worlds, comedy, jokes, lots of good funk music, fun factor and it had a unique personality.
