ToeJam & Earl retrospective with Greg Johnson

ToeJam & Earl by KöpkeIt’s not every day that you get to play a game and have that game’s developer watch you and chat to you about the game, but that’s exactly what we did this week with ToeJam & Earl and co-creator Greg Johnson.

As you may know, TJ&E was our Game of the Month in June, and this retrospective has been planned for quite awhile now, so we’re really excited to finally complete it.

To make things more interesting, Greg and I decided to hold a trivia contest, where people can win signed TJ&E concept art and signed copies of the game!

To enter, correctly answer the following trivia questions and email them to with the subject line “ToeJam & Earl trivia contest.” Be sure to give the video retrospective a watch because we answer several of the trivia questions throughout the show, and Greg voices questions 15-17.
