ToeJam & Earl are Back with a Funky New Trailer

The extraterrestrial duo will dodge lawnmowers, cavemen, and other zany Earthlings in early 2019.

Greg Johnson's Avatar Posted by Director, Humanature Studios

Greetings Earthlings! And all other apropos felicitations… Greg Johnson here, director of Humanature Studios and co-creator of the funkadelic ToeJam & Earl games. We’re super happy to announce that after… *looks at watch*… Woah! After nearly 28 years, our all new, rogue-like adventure game, ToeJam & Earl: Back in the Groove, is landing early 2019! Lemme tell ya ’bout it…

So waaay back in 1991, we released the original ToeJam & Earl game. It was a “rogue-like,” which wasn’t really even a term yet back then! Like Rogue, ToeJam & Earl had randomly generated levels, unidentified power-ups, hidden corridors, friendlies as well as bad guys… lots of Rogue-ish elements. But ToeJam & Earl also had cooperative multiplayer, dynamic split screen, musical rhythm play with a kickin’ funky soundtrack, and of course, funky aliens!

We made two sequels, Panic on Funkotron and Mission to Earth, but they were very different from that first rogue-like. Same chill vibe but totally different gameplay.

ToeJam & Earl: Back in the Groove is what I’ve been wanting to do for the series for over two decades. We’ve got awesome throwbacks, and tons of new features, but most importantly, it plays like a sequel to the original game and we know new players and old fans alike will love it.

Starting today, you can pre-order your own copy of ToeJam & Earl: Back in the Groove ($19.99) at PlayStation Store. With your pre-order, you’ll also receive the funk-tastic ToeJam & Earl PS4 dynamic theme! HIGH FIVE!

    Also wanted to say that I love the trailer. I played ToeJam & Earl Panic on Funkotron with my dad when I was a kid and have been looking forward to this for years.

I really want to get this on Switch, but this is absolutely the kind of game where I’d happily put time into getting the Platinum Trophy.

Rogue came out in 1980. Nethack came out in 1987. Roguelike was a thing before it was a word.

Played the original weekly for years with my wife. So much fun.

Thank you for making the game, and for bringing it to the market with a good price.

I can’t wait.
