Are you the world's biggest Earthworm Jim
The newly released trailer for the upcoming XBLA game Earthworm Jim HD
poses that very question, as the developers porting the game (Gameloft) are holding a contest to discover five big Jim fans to win a trip for two to New York, a visit of Gameloft's studio, and an exclusive premiere gaming session.
The trailer does show a bit of gameplay (though ideally it'd show off more, and be a HD trailer to fully display how great the hi-def port is), reintroducing us to the unique visual style and wacky gameplay of the Genesis classic, as well as the enigmatic hermaphrodite protagonist and his Super Suit.
But what the trailer lacks in real gameplay, it makes up for with this exclusive contest. To see the details of it yourself, check the external link below to watch the trailer. Or more specifically, head on over to Gameloft's Facebook fan page (http://www.facebook.com/gameloft
) and click on the "I Love Jim" link for full details on how to enter to competition. All you really have to enter is post on that page explaining your most memorable Earthworm Jim
moment, in 500 characters of less.
Any game with characters so perfectly named as Professor Monkey-For-A-Head and Queen Slug-For-A-Butt is enough to make me a fan!
There is no set release date for the game yet, nor a price, but you can at least watch the trailer via the external link below to get yourself excited.
