Ten of the original “Earthworm Jim” programmers, artists, audio team members, and level designers are returning to develop a new title for the upcoming Intellivision Amico video game console. “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. 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,” said Tommy Tallarico, Intellivision Entertainment CEO/President and original “Earthworm Jim 1 & 2” composer and sound designer.

“The title is still in the very early stages. In fact, Intellivision is livestreaming part of the first design meeting on May 4th at 3PM Eastern. However, it might be comforting news if you want to see more of the anthropomorphic annelid beyond remasters and ports of the classics. The company tells us that the ‘entire’ original team is coming back, including Doug TenNapel, David Perry and Tommy Tallarico (not surprising when he’s the CEO of Intellivision),” reports Engadget.
