Plumbers Don't Wear Ties, largely known as the worst video game ever made, is coming back. God help us.

Old-school 3DO game Plumbers Don't Wear Ties is getting re-released on PS4, PS5, Nintendo Switch, and PC, complete with digital and physical launches. Limited Run Games is making this happen, and I don't know if I should be happy or utterly terrified. Calling it a "game" is a loose definition--it's more like an interactive slideshow that two teenagers could've put together in the early 90s.

The game has been hilariously lambasted by AVGN, the angriest gaming geek on the internet, and today the game remains one of the strangest cult classics of a bygone era of doomed video game consoles.

Limited Run Games announced a total of 30 re-release at E3, including Castlevania Rondo of Blood and Symphony of the Night, two of the best sidescrollers ever made.
