ToeJam and Earl: Back in the Groove

ToeJam and Earl are making their highly-anticipated, long-awaited return later this fall. Greg Johnson, founder of HumaNature Studios has issued a statement on the fall release for ToeJam and Earl: Back in the Groove, which hits consoles and PC this fall.

The game marks the fourth entry of the action roguelike series. Also, Johnson confirmed that Adult Swim Games is no longer publishing the title. Instead, HumaNature studios is moving to self-publishing the title. You can read Greg Johnson’s statement on the upcoming game release below:

“We ARE releasing this year!! Right now we have our sights set on a fall release. We will be making a specific release plan announcement in regards to dates as soon as we have that nailed down.

Going forward Adult Swim Games is no longer going to be our publisher. Instead we are going back to self-publishing! Adult Swim Games has some other big titles they plan to launch this summer so when Back in the Groove pushed back, we both agreed that it made sense for them to hand us the reigns, rather than taking a chance on this getting pushed back any more. Also I’d like to say how deeply grateful I and all of us here at HNS are to Adult Swim Games. We wouldn’t have gotten this game to this point without them…seriously. Thank You Adult Swim!!

We are also going to be opening a closed beta within the next couple weeks for our early-access backers, and we’ll be looking for your feedback! Also, the Nintendo Switch version of the game is just about ready to be submitted for certification by Nintendo, and the other console versions are not too far behind. I’ll give you more details about all of this before this update is done.”
