Could there be another Earthworm Jim game?

Official Facebook page toys with our emotions

The official Earthworm Jim facebook page recently updated with a few lines speculating as to what they would call a fourth instalment in the franchise.

Writing on the official Facebook page, Earthworm Jim creator Doug TenNapel wrote:

'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"?'

Way back in 2009 ONM declared the Earthworm Jim 2 'The funniest game ever', so the possibility of a fourth game (especially when the third isn't considered 'canon' by TenNapel himself) certainly has us excited!

    Loved Earthworm Jim since I played the games on my Mega Drive. Would love to see how they would bring him back.

    First the Oddworld remakes and now this (even if it isn't actually an announcement). I hope to see more revivals of the games from my childhood!
