  1. New Earthworm Jim title announced, exclusively for next-gen Intellivision. You heard me.

    IRVINE, CA, May 1, 2019 – In celebration of the 25th anniversary of Earthworm Jim, Intellivision Entertainment is proud to announce it has gathered together and reunited the original Earthworm Jim team to create a brand new video game adventure exclusively for the upcoming Intellivision Amico home video game console. Ten of the original programmers, artists, audio team and level designers are taking part in bringing back the uniqueness and humor of the Earthworm Jim series.

    To celebrate the reunion with the fans, a 20 minute live interactive simulcast streaming event will take place on Saturday, May 4th at noon pacific during the first Earthworm Jim design meeting with the original team. As part of the live simulcast, the team will engage with fans to hear their new vision firsthand, multiple original art pieces will be hand-drawn by the artists, signed by the entire team and given away to people viewing the live stream. In addition, 50 brand new posters will be signed and numbered for live chat prizes.

    “We have been talking about this moment for many years, it’s a dream come true to finally get the entire team back together. We’re looking forward to sharing a small part of our reunion and initial design meeting with fans from around the world,” said Tommy Tallarico, Intellivision Entertainment CEO/President and original Earthworm Jim 1 & 2 composer and sound designer. “Intellivision Amico is designed to bring friends and families together and we are excited for fans and those just being introduced to the series to get a first look as we kick-off the design of the game.”

Voted “GAME OF THE YEAR” in 1994, the last time the Earthworm Jim team worked together was in the follow up award-winning hit sensation Earthworm Jim 2 (released in 1995). Original team members including Doug TenNapel, David Perry, Tommy Tallarico, Nick Bruty, Mike Dietz, Tom Tanaka and Joey Kuras all went on to create their own highly successful companies, technology, video games, TV shows, comic books, albums, movies, graphic novels and world touring live events.

    Doug Tennapel is a pretty bad human, but his politics seldom bleed into his work, and I really enjoy his work.

    This whole Intellivision thing is Tommy Tallarico's baby, so obviously that's the EWJ connection. I don't get what they're going for. They're promising all the games on it will be exclusive, which I can't imagine anyone abiding to other than a handful of people taking a payout. I'm not sure how they think this will work.

  5. Those dumb simple bastards.

    Art implies princess what's her name is now playable. And I'm always down for playable princesses. So there is thst.

  7. I'd like to see it but I have 0 hopes.
    6-6-98 - 6-6-18 Happy 20th Anniversary TNL

  8. -5 hopes more like it.

  9. I was wondering what was up with the Amico since the announcement last year.

    Really don’t have faith in the device. If anything the Switch filled it niche as a cartridge based family room system with numerous retro ports and indie backing.

  10. Melf and I were talking with Tommy T a bit at the Portland Retro Game show and went to the unveiling panel they had for the intellivision. He's clearly incredibly passionate about it but there were a lot of warning signs going off about the console. I'm doubtful it's going to work out in the end and hopefully that means this makes its way to Switch as well.
    You sir, are a hideous hermaphroditical character which has neither the force and firmness of a man, nor the gentleness and sensibility of a woman.
