If you had a Super Nintendo, and liked toilet humor growing up, you probably had (and loved) Boogerman: A Pick and Flick Adventure. It was a somewhat clunky platformer made enjoyable by its disgusting and silly sense of humor. Today marks the beginning of a Kickstarter to bring a brand new Boogerman game to a grand assortment of new platforms.
The game will be a “brand new HD Boogerman adventure made by the original developers” as the funding page states, “celebrating twenty years of excellent grossness!” Along with eighteen new levels, a few bonus levels, and a handful of new abilities and weapons, the game will be composed by Grant Kirkhope of Conker’s Bad Fur Day and Banjo-Kazooie fame.
While I’m all-for a new Boogerman releasing, it’s slightly worrying how high the campaign’s goal is at $375,000. I think it’s safe to say that Boogerman was a niche game, and though there are many fans, it’s hard to tell just how many. Hopefully this project doesn’t meet the same fate as the James Pond Kickstarter that was canceled earlier this month as a result of lack of interest.
If the game is funded, it will be available on Windows, Mac, Ps3, PS4, PSVita, and the WiiU. It is set to release in November of next year.
