The Kickstarter success won't make it in time for Christmas.
By Robert Marrujo:: In an announcement on its Kickstarter page, developer Humanature Studios divulged that its crowdfunded revival game ToeJam and Earl: Back in the Groove has been pushed back to 2018. Here's what the team had to say:
Greg here with a quickie update to keep you all posted. First, my apologies - I know it's been a while since we've given an update to all you backers. Thank you all for your patience and understanding. I know you want to know, "when do we get the game!?"
We tried super hard to get ToeJam and Earl: Back in the Groove out in 2017. Game development is an inexact science and it's our priority to deliver the best, most solid game we can. To get the game across the finish line we need to push into 2018, but rest assured we are working our butts off and you guys are going to get an awesome game.
Thanks for the continued support and keeping the faith! We're working so hard over here and will have additional updates over the coming weeks and months.
-Greg and team
That last bit about months probably isn't inspiring much confidence in backers who were anticipating the title to hit its 2017 launch window. Sadly, there's not much to say about the project beyond what was noted in this update, but we'll report back the second we hear anything new.
