It seems that our huge Boogerman campaign was not in vain.

Basically this game only exists because of Negative World. That's how I see it.

Is this a remake though? It kind of sounds like a brand new game in the series?!

Also someone totally needs to send the Boogercast thingy to them. Publicity!

I REALLY hope Kris has $500 to drop on this thing...

They have Grant Kirkhope at their side. You had my attention. Now you have my interest as well.

A few years ago Gui and I hatched a ridiculous plan to have a Boogerman Week here at Negative World. Neither of us had ever played the game, but we thought it might be hilarious to do a kind of ironic big event around the game. Both of us agreed to play it all the way through.

It was... uh... a thing we did. I can't really explain it.

Gui hosted a Draw Boogerman contest that a lot of people participated in. Some great work in there. I wrote a pretty popular review of it. Apparently one of the guys who made the game saw some of it. I don't know if he actually read my review or not. Sort of hope he didn't, cause I'm fairly ruthless in that one. Then, of course, there's the notorious Boogercast, where Gui, Santi and I wax poetic about fart jokes. One of the stranger chapters in the history of the Negative World Podcast.

Somehow Gui got out untarnished by Boogerman. Me? I seem to have stared deep into the boogery abyss. My name will always be tied to Boogerman. He's a part of me now.

Also: (Too Much Information Warning!) It's totally appropriate that the night I find out they're making a Boogerman remake, I get explosive diarrhea.

Who wanted this game? Even back in '94 I don't think anybody actually wanted it.

If you are going to make a new game based off an old franchise with gross tendencies, at least pick Earthworm Jim.

@kriswright

Haha, I thought your review was really good. I especially related to the part where you talked about the game's potential humor basically being lost outside of a few booger-related attacks. I can appreciate a good gross-out joke as much as the next guy, so if the new game Conkers it up, it could be something special, dare I say.

Also, Grant Kirkhope on the music? That's pretty incredible.

Yeah, there's quite a few old properties I'd love to see revived through Kickstarter... Toejam and Earl, Ecco the Dolphin, Out of this World... Boogerman isn't exactly one of them.

Is Boogerman on the Wii VC? I only ever rented it once, and while hilarious, the gameplay was merely average.

@Hinph

I would also love to play a good version of Out of This World or Toejam and Earl!

(They're called Limbo and Earthbound.)

I rented Boogerman for the Super NES as a kid and remember liking it, though I never owned it for some reason. I decided to back this Fortunately the early bird pledge is still available, so I am able to get the game for $3 less

@X-pert74

I played the Genesis version at a friend's house and thought it played poorly and even when I was in my gross out humor is always funny phase (not sure if I ever quite left it) it just did nothing for me.

This.

I was never a fan of Boogerman in the past, but these days I'm nostalgic enough to be open to the idea of this game, even though I'm still not overly big on the humor. Plus, with Kirkhope on board you know it's not gonna be all bad! The concept art looks pretty sweet too, and I hope they can keep the final game close to what we see there, 'cause the levels in the original always seemed pretty bland to me.

EDIT: 45 minutes later and I'm kind of meh about the whole thing. I'll get the soundtrack.

@chrisbg99

I agree with you on this. I'd rather see Earthworm Jim.

@chrisbg99 I barely remember anything about the game, aside from it taking place in a forest for the first stage, and Boogerman's cape changing color (I think to reflect how much health he had left). Maybe there's some difference between the Super NES and Genesis versions gameplay-wise, but I don't even remember enough about the game itself. I just remember having an opinion of it that was positive
