Comic book style visuals with funky chill beats



Quote
While the game’s technical and fundamental shortcomings hold it back, what is there makes it easy to just play a session and gives plenty of reasons to come back and find more surprises.
It’s the purest return to form ToeJam and Earl fans have been asking for and retains the same charm as the original.
Back in the Groove seized on the return of the roguelike genre and made a comeback for the franchise that lets you play as you feel like it.

Toejam and Earl III: Mission to Earth Restropective



Quote
Years ago during an email exchange with series co-creator Greg Johnson, he told me that they’d actually planned to have many more cutscenes, even going as far as to record the dialogue with the voice talent, but that these were cut when it became clear that they wouldn’t be finished on time for the game’s release.
Reviews were not kind and sales were disappointing despite a solid marketing push from SEGA and the iconic nature of its characters.

ToeJam & Earl: Back in the Groove! (PC) added the 1.7.0 Beta
with the new Fixed World maps inspired by the level design of the first game.
That means bigger maps to explore with more secret paths!

The newest Humble Bundle is full of indie darlings
Toejam & Earl Back In The Groove is here at the lowest pay tier




Quote
As with many Humble Bundles, you can pay as much as you want, but there's tiered rewards based on how much you do choose to pay (these tiers are decided by how much people donate).
Pay £0.76 or more to earn:
1. Out There: Ω Edition
2. Toejam & Earl: Back in the Groove!
Those who pay a dollar or more also get the Toejam & Earl: Back in the Groove! Soundtrack too, which has 30 different tracks from the game.

STILL in the Groove Update NOW LIVE!



Quote
ToeJam & Earl fans have been asking for BIGGER Maps, BIGGER Presents and BIGGER Earl.
Sadly, we can only deliver on two of those, we don't think Earl can possibly get any bigger.

ToeJam & Earl: Back in the Groove! - Hotfixes, Elevators and Promotions



Quote
We have heard feedback that the Promotions sometimes feel too random and not rewarding enough to help deal with the Earthlings.
We are now incorporating one free stat boost with each Promotion rank.
Players will still get the 3 random stat boosts each time they promote, but we have added an extra guaranteed stat.
