So after 14 years, a Toejam and Earl beta for the Sega Dreamcast JUST got released

So after 14 years, a Toejam and Earl beta for the Sega Dreamcast JUST got released

In today's console gaming market, things have become so precise and calculated with the rise of cost in making a AAA triple, we get things that are safe and appeal to the lowest common denominator. Looking back at titles from the 16-bit era, we got a game called Boogerman: A Pick and Flick Adventure and you know what, it wasn’t even that absurd. At the time that was just the culture of video games, there are some super ridiculous stuff that was allowed to be made and it worked out more times than not.

One such as case was Toejam and Earl, let me lay out the premise for this game. You can play as Toejam or Earl, who are alien rappers who have crashed landed on Earth. They then need to get all the pieces to their spaceship and go back to planet Funkotron. It’s about as amazing as it sounds. It was easily one of the best and most creative games on the Sega Genesis. There was a Toejam and Earl game in development for the Dreamcast, sadly it never saw the light of day. That is, until today, a gentleman who bought a devkit on eBay and it actually had the unreleased Toejam and Earl game for Sreamcast and now he’s releasing it! DREAMCAST NEVER DIE! You can follow this link to download the beta.

Wow. We bust out the Dreamcast every xmas to play Quake and Sega Tennis.

What a way to bring in the New Year! I wonder if Half-Life was ever release too?

i still dont see how it cost so much to makes video games these days.. when i see credits roll and its over 300 people.. some of he job titles seem to be repeated or just worded slightly different so it doesnt sound exactly the same. i truly believe they could cut staffs down by half and still make these games with the same current half assed quality they make them with now. the best example i can use is undead labs.. state of decay was one of the best games last year and they have a really small team.

Toejam & Earl was easily my favorite Genesis game. I still fire it up on an emulator with some regularity, reminiscing about playing the original with my friend. I miss local co-op. Can't wait to give this a whirl.
