It has been announced that an iconic video game character is returning. It’s none other than Earthworm Jim, the chaotic 90s hero(?). This time around though he isn’t returning to our consoles, he is instead getting a sequel series that will follow his adventures as he tries to find Earth. Apparently, he has lost it and needs that sweet, sweet dirt.
The team behind it, Interplay, have expressed their excitement working on bringing back Jim. Clearly, Writer and Producer Michael K Parandi is having a lot of fun. He will also lead the creative team at the core of Interplay’s newly formed television and film studio division.
“I remember loving Earthworm Jim as a kid,” Parandi says. “And there’s so much potential in this story universe: a galaxy full of animals battling for power. Jim is an earthworm in a universe where Earth is nothing more than a myth. His struggle to find meaning is surreal and comical, but it’s also relatable”.
Hopefully, with the return of Jim on television a video game will not be far behind. Be sure and let us know in the comments below if you’d like to see Earthworm Jim return with this animation style behind him with a new game.
