According to PRnewswire, creator of ‘Earthworm Jim’ Doug TenNapel has sign a deal with Interplay to establish a partnership and relaunch the ‘Earthworm’ franchise.
TenNapel will serve as a creative consultant on Earthworm Jim 4, and
will simultaneously develop an animated series and feature film to expand
the well known brand.
TenNapel created the original Earthworm Jim character, which Interplay
developed into a video game with Shiny Studios for the Sega Genesis console
in 1994. The game became an immediate hit, and later spawned sequels on
various computer and video game platforms, including Earthworm Jim 2,
Earthworm Jim 3D, and Earthworm Jim: Menace 2 the Galaxy.
