Happy Birthday Earthworm Jim

August 4th, 2014

I want to apologize before writing anything else…not only on a geek level, but on a “run a fan site dedicated to a giant worm in a super-suit for 17 years level”.
It was Earthworm Jim’s birthday on the second of August!
I was ill with food poisoning all weekend.

Mike Dietz says that the original Earthworm Jim came out in October 1994…he also informed fans that Earthworm Jim was created by Doug TenNapel sometime around November 1993. So that means we get another birthday in November. I don’t know for sure, but it’d be funny. Fans have celebrated it throughout the year which is really cool…June the 9th is also regarded as a special day to EWJ fans I know.

I think all year round is a good time to celebrate. But apparently it’s October too…so update your calenders…I think that’s birthday post number four now! :p
Hamstober is coming up…It might not be as insane as last years Hamstober – I might do more Oktoberfest instead, and just do a couple of Earthworm Jim things. :)

Earthworm Jim Fans have been posting loads of cool stuff to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Earthworm Jim (for the Sega Genesis)! You can catch up on the celebrations on Twitter and post your own.
#EarthwormJim :)

Get yourself a cup of something and have a read of The Making Of Earthworm Jim Retrogamer article that features David Perry – it’s a very good and thought provoking read.

A big hup-hup hurrah and “Thank You” to all the great people who created Earthworm Jim twenty years ago. We will always look back at it happily and go on remembering Earthworm Jim because of the efforts of the original development team. There is no bathroom.

Looking forward to Armikrog.

Err…Anyway…I was going to save this picture I did in June of Earthworm Jim sitting on Whiskey for Hamstober in October, but that’s ages away. It is Monday, and Monday’s need more hamsters. Good enough excuse.

And a quick sketch made last night of Jim in his birthday suit:
