20 years ago in retro gaming: Earthworm Jim
Earthworm Jim is one of the best platform games ever released for PC back in the 90es by Activision. What makes Earthworm Jim a great abandonware game is the perfectly balanced gameplay and the humor of titular character. Even the name "Jim", together with the science fiction setting is a pun to a popular TV series ('Jim, I'm a doctor, not a bricklayer'). A remake of the game, called Earthworm Jim HD, was released for Xbox and PlayStation in 2010.
