Some heroes by no means die.
A brand new Earthworm Jim recreation is being developed by the sequence’ authentic crew.
The brand new recreation will likely be produced by ten of the unique programmers, artists, audio crew, and degree designers. The total line-up of returning members has but to be formally introduced, however it’s presumably made up of Doug TenNapel, David Perry, Tommy Tallarico, Nick Bruty, Mike Dietz, Tom Tanaka and Joey Kuras; the unique Earthworm Jim dev crew.
This new recreation will likely be launched completely for the Intellivision Amico, a brand new console due for launch in October 2020 that acts as a type of ‘remaster’ of the traditional 1980s console. Tommy Tallarico, the composer and sound designer for the unique two Earthworm Jim video games, is the CEO and President of Intellivision Leisure.
The primary have a look at Earthworm Jim will come as a part of a livestream being held on Saturday, Could four at midday PT (8pm UK, 5am AEST), wherein the crew will maintain a design assembly and focus on their imaginative and prescient.
“We have now been speaking about this second for a few years, it’s a dream come true to lastly get your complete crew again collectively. We’re trying ahead to sharing a small a part of our reunion and preliminary design assembly with followers from all over the world,” mentioned Tommy Tallarico in a press launch.
Whereas the announcement presents no data on what this new Earthworm Jim might look and play like, it appears doubtless that it will likely be near the unique video games; the Intellivision Amico web site reveals that the console will function a heavy quantity of traditional 80s and 90s recreation re-releases and remasters, and claims the machine is powered by “21st century 2D chip and structure”. As such, it appears smart to count on a really classic-styled new entry within the sequence.
The launch of the Intellivision Amico is a way off, so when you wait why not try these PlayStation video games we’d prefer to see remastered. Maybe the unique groups may get entangled with these, too?
