    The team has posted early Wii U concept photos on some features they may implement in that version.
    Normally I don't care too much for most of the games on Kickstarter but hot damn, this looks great.

    ERROR!
    Looks like they're designing the game around the gamepad instead of making it a "tacked on" feature when it comes to the Wii U version, it's developer support like this the Wii U is in need of.
    Earthworm Jim has a special place in my heart, can't wait to see more.

    Edit: Wait, 69 hours to go, what!? How come I never heard of this project before?

    That's an interesting looking game. I always loved clay animation.

    The game looks fine and all, but considering the developer's... interesting statements in the past, I can't say I'd feel too comfortable giving my money to the guy.

    Yeah, yeah, "separate the art and the artist", but when the artist is kind of reprehensible and he's asking for my money directly, the line gets blurred quite a bit.

    This is an exciting development. I gotta say, I quite liked "The Neverhood" as a kid.

    I am a huge fan of Earthworm Jim but I find myself in the same boat as Gahars vis a vis the creators.
