Johnson also said, "We plan to go old school with this one. Fixed isometric camera, 2D sprites, simple controls, and an emphasis on coop play. It will also pull in some of the more beloved elements from game two, AND we have a list of exciting new gameplay elements planned as well." Kickstarter will need $400,000 to get the game and the job done.

A neat addition to the planned modern reboot of Toejam and Earl is that they will have a brand-new 3D terrain. "We can zoom in to see characters better, or zoom way out to see the stacked levels," Johnson explained on the Kickstarter page. "You can now see the levels way below you, and when you fall, where you land on the level below makes sense. Also, we'll have hills! So what? I can answer that with two words... ROOOCKET SKAAAAATES!!"

Johnson plans to bring the game to all platforms but will begin developing it for PC, Mac, and Linux. It has until March 27th to reach the goal amount so it can make it to its planned November release. Backers are guaranteed to receive a copy of the early access game for around $15.
