March 7th, 2014

It’s Earthworm Jim’s 20th Anniversary this year! Hoping to join in with the celebrations and do a bit for it. It only comes once every 20 years!

It took a few years, but I’ve finally made a new layout for Rocket Worm! Had to put this on hold so many times, but last month a window of time finally opened up…it’s taken a month to get this far! Arrgh. Been working hard colouring in Doug TenNapel’s next Graphic Novel Nnewts since the beginning of 2013, so it hasn’t left much room for this nonsense. ;)

First things first…

The aim was to design a better layout for this site, and retire the old one. It was at least seven years since the last one was made.

It needed to be colourful, scream Earthworm Jim! and not have a bubble anywhere…no bubbles! My only regret is that I didn’t get a hamster on this one, but there’s always next hamstober. It was also important that it would be easier to update and better for people to browse on a functionality level.

My twin sister Christine helped with this one on some of the code stuff, as well as pointing out Twitter Bootstrap. That made that process a lot easier than trying to code something completely from scratch. Big resolution for a big honking image at last…and for smaller ones It’s responsive and mobile friendly too, which is great.

I have a little tweaking of things on the main site to do because of the new style, but the hard part is done.

New layout for lemm's Earthworm Jim fansite 2014

I hope you like it! Please let me know what you think. :)

Second things second! There is quite a bit happening this year.

The Armikrog. video game that’s being made by some of the original Earthworm Jim and The Neverhood developers (as well as other really cool people) will be getting released later this year in July.

You can still get access to the private developers community and Chumpy Cam from the official Armikrog. site too, which is worth doing if you are interested in what they are getting up to behind the scenes! – Deadline for that stuff is over now.

Tommy Tallarico’s New Video Games Live Level 3 is out! The music is absolutely mind-blowing.

If you missed out on the VGL Kickstarter last year, you can find it at Amazon and Itunes etc. Level 3 Video Games Live

Doug TenNapel’s Tommysaurus Rex graphic novel just recently got picked up for a movie! That just got announced yesterday.

And I think that’s it for now…happy belated 2014!
