Garbage Pail Kids: Mad Mike and the Quest for Stale Gum is coming to Switch and is launching in just a few weeks, it’s been revealed. Publisher iam8bit and developer Retrotainment are behind the new title.
Garbage Pail Kids: Mad Mike and the Quest for Stale Gum takes place after the events of GPK Mad Mike: Fury Load. This was a series of shorts written by Adam F. Goldberg (creator of the TV show The Goldbergs) set in a post-apocalyptic world. After saving the day, Mad Mike simply wants his favorite stale gum, but the factory run by Brainy Janie only makes fresh gum. That prompts an adventure in which Mad Mike will travel through time and space with his friends on a high-tech toilet to collect the ingredients to make it stale.
Mad Mike, Luke Puke, Leaky Lindsay, and Patty Putty are all playable and can be used at any time. Each character has unique abilities. Six different levels are included that can be tackled in any order. Players will visit the Stone Age, ’80s Tokyo, a future Mars colony, and more.
Thanks to Game Informer, we have a few other details as well. Players can collect cards and trade them, and some have powers such as stunning enemies or granting temporary flight. A number of mini games are included such as flying around dangerous obstacles as Buggy Betty. There’ll also be difficulty options plus rewind, save states, watch mode, video filter effects, bonus gallery content, and more courtesy of Digital Eclipse.
Garbage Pail Kids: Mad Mike and the Quest for Stale Gum is due out for Switch on October 25, 2022. A NES special cartridge version will ship in Q1 2023.
