I remember the day I rented Boogerman on the Super Nintendo. It was a hot summer day, and my mum drove me down to Blockbuster to pick up some games. The snotty protagonist was staring at me from the cover, and I knew I had to take him home. We then went to my grandparent’s place and my grandpa and I were in stitches, then my mum walked in the room.
“What the hell is this?” my mother exclaimed. “It’s Boogerman” I replied, before making Snotty Ragsdale belch in the direction of my enemies. I was quickly whisked away, and she made me return the game immediately. It was the one and only time my mum had an objection to a video game I was playing. It was weird.
Why am I telling you this? Because it’s the 20th anniversar next year, and the developers of the pick and flick platformer Boogerman want to develop a new game funded by Kickstarter.
Keeping the lewd themes that shocked my mother all those years ago, Boogerman 20th Anniversary will see the return of Snotty Ragsdale as he picks and flicks his way through the naval caverns, the mucus mountains and pus palace. Creators Mike Stragey and Chris Tremmel plan to bring a HD experience with new mechanics that may include minecarts and swimming. They also announced the Grant Kirkhope, composer on Perfect Dark, Banjo Kazooie and Donkey Kong Country 64 will be doing the soundtrack.
Boogerman 20th Anniversary is planned to arrive in November 204 for PC, Mac, PS4, Vita and Wii U. They are asking for $375,000 to fund the project, and have already setup a Greenlight page for Steam.
I’m 26 years old now mum, you can’t stop me now!
