Taking a trip back into a time machine to the retro days of gaming, most gamers would remember, or at least heard of 1992's ToeJam & Earl. The game was a hit success back in the day, and now being backed by a Kickstarter the 4th installment in the series has been developed and will be launching on March 1st. In a press release from HumaNature Studios, the developers of the title, it's stated that Culkin uses his own comedy brand called "Bunny Ears" to join up with ToeJam & Earl: Back in the Groove!.
Culkin will officially become a executive producer for ToeJam & Earl: Back in the Groove! and will use Bunny Ears' influence to "ensure the game is a hella good time". Culkin believes he would be able to provide the comedic value that Kickstarter backers would be after due to how much time he spent playing the original game. He revealed his devotion of the game through a Reddit AMA where he expresses that its his favorite game of all time. He even further showed his love by posting a picture on Twitter with an image of him playing instead of watching the Oscars. The caption wrote: "Here's some things I'm doing instead of watching the #oscars"
To coincide with the launch of ToeJam & Earl: Back in the Groove!, Culkin will be doing a podcast with the games creator Greg Johnson this Friday to celebrate.
