Interplay is selling off Earthworm Jim, Freespace, and more

When I think of Interplay, I think of the Earthworm Jim series, but that isn't a thought I've had in a long while. There just isn't much happening there unless you're simply rebuying the original games, and the same could be said of most of...

Earthworm Jim is back ... in Boogerman 20th Anniversary

We haven't yet covered that Kickstarter for a new Boogerman. And it's not that there was some internal mandate to avoid writing about it or anything of the sort; frankly, none of us cared enough about the game. That's it -- simple apathy. T...

Behold Armikrog, the spiritual sequel to The Neverhood

The Neverhood was one of the more unfortunate commercial failures of the point-and-click era. It was a one-of-a-kind (two-of-a-kind if you include its PS1 platformer sequel) claymation adventure from the mind of Doug TenNapel, creator of E...

The alphabet of 'Game Overs' in comic strip form

Superfans of brentalfloss might be aware that he has his own self-titled webcomic. He doesn't draw it -- doodles are provided by one Andrew Dobson -- but he co-writes along with series creator Dan Roth. And whenever there's a painfully unfu...

Earthworm Jim never rawked this hard

It's been a while since Kris Escobar last released a new Psycho Crusher track. Now he's back and badder than ever with a sick Earthworm Jim cover that will make children weep and panties drop. "Groovy Junk" is, of course, based on the New ...

Earthworm Jim creator ... no friend to gay people?

Earthworm Jim creator Doug TenNapel is, apparently, a living parody of American bigotry. Recently, the artist made several amazing comments on the subject of Christianity, gay marriage, and why AMERICURRRR is the best damn country in the wo...
