The Quest for Stale Gum Begins!

In the ’80s, the world was ruled by two things: the Nintendo Entertainment System and Garbage Pail Kids cards. These lovable, grossout monster children could be found in the lunchboxes of every latchkey kid, juvenile delinquent, rascal, and brat in the neighborhood. At the same time, Nintendo was taking over America with their first home video game console. So, it only made perfect sense when these two dominant forces of 80s pop culture came together… right? Right?????

Well, here’s the thing: that never happened. UNTIL NOW!!

iam8bit Presents, alongside the developers/time-travelers at Retrotainment and our friends at Topps, are proud to reveal this Long-Lost, All-New Garbage Pail Kids NES Game on a real, functioning NES Cartridge! That’s right, Garbage Pail Kids: Mad Mike and the Quest for Stale Gum is a BRAND NEW NES game! This old school platformer features four playable GPK characters, six disgusting, secret-filled levels, and its own trading-card system. It’s a complete throwback to the golden era of gaming.

And of course, we had to house it all in a SICK iam8bit-exclusive NES Cartridge collector’s package. Available in Mad Mike Blue (with a chance at an ultra rare Stale Gum Pink color variant), this box also includes a Full-Color, Premium Instruction Booklet and an Exclusive batch of Pixel Art GPK Cards. Pop this sucker in your NES! Cuz it’ll actually work!

Wanna play the game but don’t have a retro console? Don’t fret! You can download Garbage Pail Kids: Made Mike and the Quest for Stale Gum on Steam, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and the Epic Game Store. Coming soon!
