When I first heard that past Earthworm Jim creator Doug TenNapel was heading to Kickstarter for a new game, I was SO excited that it was going to be a new Earthworm Jim game. Unfortunately for my excitement it wasn’t, it was for a new Armikrog game, more on that here, but recently via the Earthworm Jim Facebook page which is apparently moderated by TenNapel himself a new Earthworm Jim game could be on the horizon!
The Facebook post reads: “Everyone loves Earthworm Jim 1 and 2, and I don’t generally acknowledge EWJ 3 as a real part of the Jim universe. So if I was making another Jim game, would it be too confusing to call it Jim 3? Or would it have to be Jim 4? How about ‘Earthworm Jim 4 the Fans’?”
Y’know what TenNapel, call it whatever the hell you want, just shut up and take my money!
If you haven’t yet played the 1993 SNES/Sega Mega Drive/Genesis classic then you’re really missing out! You can actually pick up the original title in the Nintendo 3DS eShop for around £5! I definitely recommend picking up the hilariously stupid 2D side scrolling shooter.
More on this as it happens!
