ToeJam & Earl: Back in the Groove will touch down this year


Greetings, Earthlings!

It's been a few years since ToeJam & Earl: Back in the Groove received its Kickstarter funding and got into production. Even with a slight delay postponing their return to Earth, the funky '90s duo is still trucking along. While a firm release date is still too early to call, developer HumaNature Studios has announced that the revival sequel will be releasing in 2018.

Greg Johnson, founder of HumaNature and creator of ToeJam & Earl, said, "We ARE releasing this year!!  Right now we have our sights set on a fall release. We will be making a specific release plan announcement in regards to dates as soon as we have that nailed down." In an unexpected turn, Adult Swim Games will no longer be publishing the title. Now, ToeJam & Earl are going completely indie!

If you were a backer during the original crowdfunding campaign, you should be receiving an invite into the closed beta shortly. Johnson said the team will be looking for feedback to make the game as good as possible. It seems the Switch version will also be out before the other console ports, according to Johnson's wording.
