If you were a Genesis–or Mega Drive–fan back in the day, you might remember a little game called ToeJam & Earl. The most 90s of video games, it featured a pair of hip hop-loving aliens on a quest to repair their spaceship and return home. A new title in the series hit Kickstarter in 2015, and title’s now got the backing of a significant publisher in Adult Swim Games.
ToeJam & Earl: Back in the Groove takes players back to the isometric, rocketship part-hunting gameplay of the original title. The official write-up even makes some digs at the Xbox game Mission to Earth, so you know the developers are courting the right sort of nostalgia.
You’ll still be able to play in two-player split-screen, but you now also have the option of four-player online co-op. There are nine playable characters, a bevy of randomly generated levels, and a funky new soundtrack consisting of thirteen classic remixes and thirteen original tracks.
ToeJam & Earl: Back in the Groove is set to release in 2017 for PC and console.
