Funk yeah. Toejam & Earl might be back.

Along with Road Rash, the Toejam & Earl video game series was essential pop culture in my childhood. I spent countless hours playing these games about two aliens bringing funk to crazy earthlings. I’ve casually followed the Facebook fan page, but yesterday the big news dropped that the creators are trying to make a new game – the one they always wanted. It’ll feature more elements of the original gameplay, but with retro comic book style. Since SEGA doesn’t actually own the rights to the game, Humanature Studios can go indie and are raising funds on Kickstarter. It’s going to take quite a bit of time and funding to pull this one off, but I hope it gets there. This is the 90s at its finest.
