Up until this past weekend, ToeJam & Earl was a title I knew nothing about. I’ve heard of the games over the years, usually from people at GameStop romanticizing the days of their youth spent with it, but for decades it was just a weirdly named game. Who’d want to play a game as something named “ToeJam?”
Turns out, $508,000 worth of people did because that’s how much money the fourth game in the series, ToeJam & Earl: Back in the Groove, raised on Kickstarter three years ago. Now, we’re just a couple of months away from release, getting our first good look at the final product at PAX West. Far away from the bustling Washington State Convention Center, in an upstairs unit on Post Alley near the Pike Place Market, I sit down for a hands-on session with series co-creator Greg Johnson, founder of HumaNature Studios.
