Tommy shared this image of the controller...


Huh, well that's certainly different!

The screen on it is touch sensitive and can be used to play games on it along with whatever function a game requires.

Nice to see Earthworm Jim making a comeback and it's a good exclusive for the new Intellivision.

However, bringing back the whole original team isn't a very good idea IMO. One of the main people behind the original game is a man by the name of Doug TenNapel. If you don't know who that is just google him, but basically he's very anti LGBTQ and has said some pretty bad stuff over the years.  Not a good look having him involved.

Ah, I did not know that about that guy.  Maybe the Amico team doesn't know either, though a quick search does show he is quite vocal about his opinions.
