ToeJam & Earl: Back in the Groove being updated to Version 1.6.1 this week, Switch hotfix also in the works

Funky fresh

ToeJam & Earl: Back in the Groove is getting its next big update this week. Versino 1.6.1 is live on Steam right now, and will drop in a few days on Switch. That goes along with a hotfix that is coming to Switch specifically as well. Check out full details on the update below.

Updated Unity (2017.4.16f1)

Updated German dialogue

Santa won't drop locked stuff now

Santa always acts surprised when caught

Spring Shoes only disable when actually near Elevators

Ledge jumping now works correctly for all kinds of edges with Hitops

Remove Swap Bodies present from Online games

Prevent Big Sneeze from moving some earthlings like Sharks and Dolphins out of water

Big Sneeze knocks back presents, money and food now as well

Sneezed presents and food that go into the water will poof away

Dropping a present on water makes it poof away

Football player stops attacking if he hits an Earthling along the way

Added XP for popping humans. XP rewarded depends on the enemy type. No XP rewarded for popping Friendly Earthlings

Allow shooting/throwing tomatoes from an innertube in water

Adjust present timer to show when multiple presents are running

Amped Present Freeze now makes players fall out of sky when used in air

Enable present menu when wearing rocket skates

Fix Duplicate Present from duplicating itself

Removed ‘level cap’ on presents in all modes. This means you can find ALL presents from the beginning of the game. We originally had some of the better/more evil presents (Icarus Wings, Total Bummer, Promotion, etc) only available after you reach a certain level.

New Feature: These presents can run simultaneously now:

Armored/Innertube, Tomatoes, Slingshot, Spring Shoes, Icarus Wings, Mean/Rocket Skates, Rose Bushes, Hi-Tops, Timed Teleport, Invisibility Paint, Big Sneeze, Earthling Disguise, Flashlight, Torch, Funk Fu Blast, Gassy Tummy, Present Freeze, Burnin Up, Rootbeer, Protection Bubble, Here I Am

New Feature: Added new synergies when certain presents are used together:

Innertube + Spring Shoes = hop on water!

Tomatoes/Slingshot + Funk-Fu Blast = tomato blast!

Tomato Rain + Funk-Fu Blast = tomato downpour!

Added 3 new HIDDEN synergies:

Hidden Synergies are present combinations that when used the correct way will provide new effects.

????? + ????? + ????? = KABOOM!

????? + ????? = FUNKZILLA!

????? + ????? (On Ice Levels Only) = X-MAS TIME!

Find the hidden synergies and reach out to us when you do! We may have a special surprise for you!

Again, once we are sure everything isn’t going to implode on us we will begin launching this update out on all consoles. Coming with the final release of the update will be an all new and improved version of the Dancing Mini Game to make it a bit easier for players to land those perfects and get funky with flawless performance!

While we gather data from this update we will also be launching a quick Switch hotfix that addresses some of the crashing issues players are facing when trying to join an online game.
