Boogerman (2)

In the years since I’ve picked up a controller and started gaming, I’ve seen many heroes come and go. Toejam and Earl, virtual Jean Claude van Damme and that blue bastard midget with the bag from Golden Axe. My favourite hero? Boogerman. And he’s getting ready to pick and flick once again.

Created by Mike Stragey and Chris Tremmel way way back in 1994, Boogerman had players running around the septic hazard stages of Dimension X-Crement as the titular hero of that game. Boogerman could fling snot better than a high schooler, blast a fart that sounded like a tuba at max volume and power up his gas with Jalapeno peppers in order to unleash flamethrower burps.

Naturally, as a kid when I eventually discovered the toilet humour of this game, I was freakin’ thrilled. Almost 20 years later, Stragey and Tremmel are planning to bring back the cult hero, remake-style.

Taking the crowd-sourced route that is frequently travelled, the duo have hit Kickstarter to get some of that much needed cheddar for their game. As of the time that I wrote this, they had managed to gather $5438 in pledges…out of the $375 000 that they’re asking for. Hoo boy.

I’ve still got fond memories for the game, which is more than I can say about Geoff who has proven to be wrong about all the things that ever were and will be. But a $375 000 Kickstarter drive for it?

As much as I’d dig to see it brought back, that’s one hell of a total sum to strive for. Good luck on that one.

    Boogerman was a crap, gimmicky game when it was originally released in 1994, by the same publisher who brought you the infinitely better Earthworm Jim.

            There’s a few I’d like to see:

            Arcanum, Blood, MDK, Omicron Nomad Soul & Vampire the Masquerade.

            Looking through my GOG collection now there’s actually a lot of old games that have had remakes, reinventions or successors recently.

            MDK, Blood and Vampire the Masquerade NEED remakes! esp Bloodlines had so much potential! was still good game at the time! Imagine it now though in like Cry engine 3!

            Let CDPR have a crack at Vampire once they’re done with Witcher 3 & Cyberpunk 2077. PLEEEEEEEEEEEEEASSSEEEEEEEEEEEE!

            Some good games there, Omicron was really ambitious . Yeah a lot of games has been getting remakes mostly through Kickstarter and they aren’t all that good too. I just hope one day we will see a Vampire remake

            Me too – it’s probably my favourite RPG of all.

            I wonder if vampires will still look the same in a remake. I would blow up with rage if we get twilight vamps …

            What? How could you even say that? I just.. NO!

            I don’t know, vampires seem to be changing with each generation
