RELEASE HumaNature Announces Macaulay Culkin as Executive Producer of ToeJam &
Earl: Back in the Groove! Actor Joins the Alien Duo Franchise with Bunny Ears Games
SAN FRANCISCO – February 26, 2019 – ToeJam & Earl: Back in the Groove!, the
upcoming fourth entry of the beloved, funkadelic action roguelike series from
HumaNature Studios, brings a new present for its fans, with the addition of actor
and musician Macaulay Culkin as the game’s newest executive producer. Culkin, an
outspoken fan of the franchise, named the original 1991 Sega Genesis ToeJam & Earl
as his favorite game during a Reddit “Ask Me Anything”, included the pair on a
parody of the March Madness Mega Bracket as a favorite to win, and Tweeted he’d
rather play it than watch the 2018 Oscars.

 

With more than three decades of
experience in the entertainment industry, Culkin started the comedy brand Bunny
Ears in 2017 as a digital outlet to express his unconventional thoughts on
everything pop culture related through hilarious articles and podcasts with
fascinating guests. Now The Incredible Culk and his team are debuting Bunny Ears
Games with ToeJam & Earl: Back in the Groove!. Bunny Ears’ wry wit and penchant for
satire provided crucial input to ensure the game is a hella good time. Growing up
playing the original game on Sega Genesis, Culkin knew exactly what would – and
wouldn’t – appeal to the thousands of Kickstarter backers that funded the sequel.
Says Culkin, “I’m honored to be producing the new ToeJam & Earl because it is
literally my favorite video game of all time. Plus, Greg Johnson is the tits!” Back
in the Groove! debuts on March 1 on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and
Steam for Windows PC and Mac, bringing humans’ favorite funky aliens back to our
planet. The iconic duo tries to inconspicuously borrow the Rapmaster Rocket to show
off to Latisha and Lewanda. One press of the wrong button causes a black hole
incident that leaves them with a broken ship, stranded on Earth. Find parts to
rebuild the ship, deal with those weirdo Earthlings, and get back home. “ToeJam and
Earl: Back in the Groove is a ‘90s styled blast from the past.” Said Greg Johnson,
founder of Humanature Studios. “Macaulay Culkin, the star of the ‘90s classic Home
Alone is an Uber Fan of the ToeJam games.

 

He totally gets the vibe and humor of the
new game, and his involvement has made the game even crazier and more fun.” ToeJam
& Earl: Back in the Groove will be available in English, French, Italian, German,
Spanish (Spain), and Brazilian Portuguese for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox
One, Windows PC and Mac via Steam for $19.99 USD on March 1. To learn more, please
