In a post on the official Earthworm Jim Facebook page, franchise creator Doug TenNapel has hinted he is working on a new Earthworm Jim game.

“Everyone loves Earthworm Jim 1 and 2, and I don’t generally acknowledge EWJ 3 as a real part of the Jim universe. So if I was making another Jim game, would it be too confusing to call it Jim 3? Or would it have to be Jim 4? How about ‘Earthworm Jim 4 the Fans’?”

This isn’t an official announcement by any means, but maybe the time to bring back the lovable worm is finally right. Whichever name TenNapel will choose, I’m hoping for more information soon.
