Popular pick ‘n’ flick adventure Boogerman could be making a comeback on the PlayStation 4 and Vita, as part of a new Kickstarter campaign fronted by original creators Mike Stragey and Chris Tremmel. For those unfamiliar with the original, the SEGA Mega Drive gross-‘em-up saw you take control of Snotty Ragsdale, an eccentric millionaire capable of using flatulence and bodily fluids to ward off evil.
The next generation refresh will retain the characters and settings from the 1994 classic, but promises to introduce new gameplay mechanics, visuals, and more – all without sacrificing the feel of the 16-bit hit. In order to attain its goals, the aforementioned co-creators have recruited Banjo-Kazooie composer Grant Kirkhope and award-winning writer Jordana Arkin to support their efforts.
The group’s currently asking for $375,000 in order to make the repulsive release a reality, and it’s pulled in just under $6,000 at the time of writing. Fortunately, there’s still 34 days of funding time left on the clock, so we’re sure that this will pick up speed over the coming weeks. Pledging just $12 will score you a copy of the game on the PS4 or Vita, should the game get fully funded. The team’s hoping to release the title in November 2014 if the campaign’s successful.
As youngsters, we thought that the original Boogerman was the funniest thing in the world. We’re not sure if the stupidity will still play today, but we definitely love the direction that Stragey, Tremmel, and crew are taking with the title.
