ToeJam & Earl is an early 1990s dungeon crawler. The game features two alien rappers, who have crash-landed on Earth and parodies 1980s urban culture. The game's design was heavily influenced by the role-playing video game Rogue, and took from it such features as the random generation of levels and items. Played from a 2D-top-down perspective the game contains both single-player and two-player cooperative modes. The latter displays a single screen when both characters are near each other, but splits it apart when they are not. Playing the game with two players reveals dialogue and jokes between the characters not heard in the single player game.

I love the vibe and sense of humor of this game, but it’s a bit of a slog to play. It could also be very cheap at times. I really wish I was able to play it co-op.

Just realized I legally can't make fun of this for just being a game where you walk around and barely do anything because my literal favorite game is Yume Nikki

I really wanted to like this game but its so boring.

Every few years or so I forget why I hated this the last time I played it and ten minutes into me trying it once again, every single time, I’m like this is just a roguelike where all you do is fucking walk and the walking also sucks and also there’s a character named goddamn ToeJam. The video game equivalent of that Nick Cave anecdote about the Red Hot Chili Peppers
