In celebration of the 25th anniversary of Earthworm Jim, the original team of Intellivision Entertainment has decided to gather together and reunite for a brand new video game adventure exclusively for the upcoming Intellivision Amico home video game console. The team will unite ten of the original programmers, artists, audio team and level designers to bring 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 is set for Saturday, May 4th (Noon Pacific) as a part of the first Earthworm Jim design meeting with the original team. The team will talk to the fans to discuss the future of the legendary franchise.
“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.”
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 after the second part of the series.
