A classic Sega game just got a major sequel that was executive-produced by Macauley Culkin, and it’s shockingly great

Indeed, “Home Alone” star Macauley Culkin is the executive producer of “ToeJam & Earl: Back in the Groove!” He’s apparently a major fan of the original game.

After sharing his love for the original game so publicly, Culkin and the game’s original creator, Greg Johnson, got together.

All of which is to say: The new “ToeJam & Earl” is most like the original game that people remember fondly. You play as ToeJam, Earl, or one of several other characters tasked with collecting various ship parts, employing power-ups to defeat, or to escape from, or to distract enemies.

Exploration is key, as each world is shrouded in fog on your map until you go there yourself. Along the way you’ll encounter bizarre enemies, bushes that must be shaken to reveal their treasures, and false elevators that try to eat you.

It’s a really, really strange game, but it’s delightful in how strange it is.
