We recently reported on a Kickstarter campaign to make a new version of Boogerman, a gross 16-bit platformer which originally appeared on the Sega Mega Drive / Genesis back in the '90s. The creators are seeking $375,000 to fund the project and have raised just over $24,000 so far, with 27 days remaining.

They'll no doubt be hoping that this latest piece of news will trigger a rush of pledges, as it has been confirmed that Earthworm Jim will be playable in the game, and that there's also going to be a two-player co-op mode.

The game — should it be funded — will be coming to the Wii U eShop, as well as Xbox One, PS4, PS Vita, PC, Mac and Linux.

Earthworm Jim was a massive draw during the 16-bit era, but his star has faded in recent years. Will his involvement convince you to lay down some cash? Let us know by posting a comment below.
