Video Game Ad of the Day: MDK

MDK One Sheet
MDK is Shiny Entertainment’s third game, a distinct departure from the bright, cartoon-like Earthworm Jim. The game was originally pitched as Murder, Death, Kill, but the title was rejected by US publisher Playmates Interactive, whose parent company was to make toys associated with the game. MDK’s acronym tends to change based on the day – Max, Doctor Hawkins and Kurt, Mission: Deliver Kindess and My Dear Knight are just a few examples cited in official documents and interviews.


Video Game Ad of the Day: Earthworm Jim

Earthworm Jim Sad
I thought I had seen all of the advertisements for Earthworm Jim, but it seems one had eluded me. It’s kind of cruel that I laughed at it though.
