Macaulay Culkin Announced as Exec. Producer of New ToeJam & Earl Game
If youve been a fan of ToeJam & Earl back in the day, and you are looking forward to the new game releasing in March, then this news should be of interest to you. ToeJam & Earl: Back in the Groove!, the upcoming fourth entry of the funkadelic action roguelike series from HumaNature Studios, brings a new present for its fans, with the addition of actor and musician Macaulay Culkin as the game’s newest executive producer.
Culkin, an outspoken fan of the franchise, named the original 1991 Sega Genesis ToeJam & Earl as his favorite game during a Reddit “Ask Me Anything”, included the pair on a parody of the March Madness Mega Bracket as a favorite to win, and Tweeted he’d rather play it than watch the 2018 Oscars.
With more than three decades of experience in the entertainment industry, Culkin started the comedy brand Bunny Ears in 2017 as a digital outlet to express his unconventional thoughts on everything pop culture related through hilarious articles and podcasts with fascinating guests.
Now The Incredible Culk (his twitter handle) and his team are debuting Bunny Ears Games with ToeJam & Earl: Back in the Groove!. Bunny Ears’ wry wit and penchant for satire provided crucial input to ensure the game is a hella good time. Growing up playing the original game on Sega Genesis, Culkin knew exactly what would – and wouldn’t – appeal to the thousands of Kickstarter backers that funded the sequel.
