Toe Jam & Earl: Back in the Groove

Post by outdated_gamer » Thu Mar 07, 2019 4:07 pm

Available for modern home platforms (Switch, PS4, XBO, Steam) since the start of this month:

Looks real cool to me and isn't pricy either.

I played the MD original but I never really messed with it much. Still, this new version seems neat and may be worth to plunge some money and time into.

Absolutely delighted to see this released, even if it isn't on any platform I own! :lol:

I've really been enjoying this. Who'd have thought that...

a) TJ&E is a roguelike before doing roguelikes was in fashion
b) That I would give a censored about a roguelike game

Playing it digitally but I also ordered the ridiculous special edition box from Limited Run. https://limitedrungames.com/collections ... n-preorder

Not even a PC?

Game's not that demanding, some i3 powered laptop with decent graphics should handle it just fine.

Nope, my laptop is about 15 years old & is only ever used for word docs for work & swaping files between my portable harddrive & android devices.
