Around 20 Years ago I was getting ready to leave school and go on to exciting things like College, University and out into the world to make videogames and work on tech. I also bought a videogame for my SNES about an ordinary earthworm who evolved into a gun toating super-anti hero when a strange space suit fell onto him. The 90s housed all sorts of weird and surreal characters such as Ren and Stimpy who starred in their own cartoon TV show that aired both here in the US and Jim was one of the long line of oddballs that where the protagonists for 2D console platform games of that time. I always talk about Jim as one of the reasons I got into gaming and have history with the character and the developers. So I have decided to do a full playthrough and talk about growing up and where I was going and where I am from as well as general history about the era.
