Boogerman 20th Anniversary: The Video Game picking and flicking on Kickstarter

Boogerman was something of a cult hit on the Mega Drive and SNES back in the mid-90s, and former Interplay developers Mike Stragey and Chris Tremmel are hoping that the fans who were wooed by the hero’s farting and burping antics 20 years ago will jump on board for another round with their Kickstarter project for a Boogerman reboot.

The pair are seeking $US375,000 to bring the game to life. They’re planning a release on Steam (Greenlight page is already up), PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita and Wii U. Former Rare composer Grant Kirkhope is lined up to do the soundtrack.

THe proposed game is an expansion and reboot of the original game, retreading some of the familiar ground of the original game, as well as new levels, new abilities and a modern presentation.

So if you wanted more Boogerman in your life, here’s your chance.


Interview: Michael McConnohie and Melodee Spevack

If you’ve been playing a lot of modern games, you’ll probably recognise the names of these two voice actors due to their heavy involvement with the Warcraft series. If you’re a Crackdown fan, then you should definitely know Michael McConnohie’s voice (he’s the Agency leader/narrator). Michael and Melodee run a production company called Voxworks, and have provided voice work for a ridiculous number of video games and anime shows.

Their history goes back a lot further than that, as my friend Matt Williams found out when he interviewed them recently. In fact, Michael McConnohie voiced the legendary Boogerman. You can read about their work on Boogerman and their part in the history of Interplay after the break.

Video Game Ad of the Day: Boogerman: A Pick and Flick Adventure

Amusing concept, terrible game.

Boogerman: A Pick and Flick Adventure is an unconventional platformer where the titular character uses snot, farts and burps to subdue his enemies. Although it has an amusing art style and is wonderfully animated, Boogerman‘s gameplay is quite terrible. This ad is for the UK release.
