Greg Johnson, the original designer of ToeJam and Earl, and his new Humanature Studios launched a Kickstarter for ToeJam and Earl: Back in the Groove in early 2015 that managed to surpass its funding goal with $508,637. For much of 2016, the developers had been silently working on the game with sporadic updates, but yesterday the studio broke their silence. Humanature Studios has announced that Adult Swim Games would be publishing the title for PC and consoles.

 

The new game follows ToeJam and Earl after they steal the Rapmaster Rocketship to joyride around space with their ladyfriends, Latisha and Lawanda. Unfortunately, while joyriding they press the Big, Red Button (never press the big, red button!) which opens a black hole, hurling their ship across the cosmos and scattering their ship across a strange planet. 

 

Back in the Groove tries to capture the nostalgia of the original console titles while presenting the series in a new, updated light for those who never had the opportunity to play the older games. Players can choose from one of nine playable characters: ToeJam, Earl, Latisha, Lewanda, GeekJam, Peabo, and Earl’s mom, Flo. Back in the Groove also features couch co-op and online co-op so players can tackle the randomly generated worlds, funk zones, and secret locations. The soundtrack consists of 13 remixed songs from the original games and 13 wholly original songs making it a tasty treat for those who dug the original tracks.

 

 

ToeJam and Earl: Back in the Groove releases for PC and consoles sometime in 2017.
