'ToeJam and Earl: Back in the Groove' (ALL) Delayed Until 2018

by Rainier on Nov. 9, 2017 @ 5:34 p.m. PST

Back in the Groove is a mash-up of the best features from game one and two with a major pile of new presents, earthlings, nine playable characters, and a brand new co-op mode thrown in.

Yo! Check it out... ToeJam and Earl are back on Earth once again, getting funky and running from those crazy Earthlings.

Deja vu! (deja vu!)

Here’s the basics… TJ decides it’s a good idea to “borrow” the Rapmaster Rocketship from Lamont (no point waking him up, right?), so he and Big E. can take Latisha and Lewanda out for a joyride. While they’re in orbit around Earth, maybe showing off just a little, TJ tells Earl to crank the bass on the speakers and “Press the RED button!” Unfortunately, that’s the button that says: “Black Hole - Do Not Press!!” (Doh!)

You can pretty much guess the rest, TJ and Earl once again find themselves searching for the pieces of their Rocketship, collecting power-up presents left lying around by Santa, and dealing with the less-than-rational human beings.

We tried super hard to get ToeJam and Earl: Back in the Groove out in 2017. Game development is an inexact science and it's our priority to deliver the best, most solid game we can. To get the game across the finish line we need to push into 2018, but rest assured we are working our butts off and you guys are going to get an awesome game.

Thanks for the continued support and keeping the faith! We're working so hard over here and will have additional updates over the coming weeks and months.
