ToeJam & Earl bring the funk to Kickstarter

Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah!

The funkotronic duo are back in ToeJam & Earl: Back in the Groove, and this time the developers are turning to Kickstarter to make sure the game gets made without publisher interference. Greg Johnson, one of the two creators of the franchise, has pitched the game as a ToeJam & Earl experience similar to the original game.

While being old school at its core, it looks like there are going to be some welcome additions to the formula such as four-player cooperative, upgrades that carry between games, and hats that affect stats. ToeJam & Earl: Back in the Groove hopes to get $400,000 to release on PC and potentially other unspecified platforms.
