Fans of the original video game series Earthworm Jim will be thrilled to learn that a new installment is in development. However, there was some controversy earlier this year as fans were worried about how it would handle racial issues and sexist tropes.
After a five-year hiatus, the cult classic platformer is set to make a return on Nintendo Switch. Fans of Jim will be relieved as Retro Studios has been hard at work since last year’s E3 reveal.Back in 2018, Earthworm Jim creator Doug TenNapel announced he would be working with Gearbox to produce a new game. After years of silence it was announced that the game is finally coming out this year. The original creators are back and ready for action!
Earthworm Jim is one of the most beloved platformers ever. The game was released in 1994 and has been a favorite for gamers ever since. Recently, Earthworm Jim has been rebooted with a new look and feel.
In the 1990s, Earthworm Jim was not just a video game hero, but he also appeared in a short-lived television series (with a very catchy theme song). In a revolutionary new series, the world’s most famous invertebrate makes a reappearance on television.
Interplay Entertainment has teamed up with APA to form an all-new creative team, headed by Producer Aaron Billet and Writer and Producer Michel K Parandi, to embark on a reboot of the 1996 cartoon series Earthworm Jim. The original sitcom aired on the WB Television Network for 23 episodes, gaining a cult following for its weird meta comedy and distinctive visual aesthetic.
Earthworm Jim is a worm that wears a robotic outfit and battles a variety of strange and crazy adversaries while seeking for his lost home, planet Earth. Along the trip, he encounters a variety of anthropomorphic creatures that live in a variety of strange and bizarre environments.
The animated television series Earthworm Jim is back.
Beyondthegroovy.com has a behind-the-scenes interview with Earthworm Jim about the program, which should give you a flavor of what to anticipate from it. The announcement was accompanied by some concept drawings.
The program is being produced by Interplay’s newly founded television and film studio business, which is extending the software publisher and developer’s IP inventory into new terrain. Parandi, the show’s creative director, intends to capitalize on the promise left by the previous series.
“As a youngster, I recall adoring Earthworm Jim,” Parandi explains. “And this tale world has so much potential: a galaxy full of creatures striving for dominance.” In a realm where Earth is nothing more than a fiction, Jim is an earthworm. His search for purpose is bizarre and amusing, but it’s also understandable.”
Passion Pictures, an award-winning animation company, is in charge of the visuals.
Earthworm Jim is most known for his role as the protagonist of a Sega Genesis platformer made by Shiny Entertainment that inspired three sequels. In 2019, a new game for the Intellivision Amico was launched.
The new Earthworm Jim series has no specific release date, although it doesn’t seem to be too far away.
