The lights are on
EA's pun-fueled take on James Bond will return in an upcoming Kickstarter campaign.
In the early '90s, EA released a platformer called James Pond. The titles wasn't a massive hit, but it spawned a couple sequels and was popular enough to amass a following that has apparently been bugging the creator for another entry. We don't know what the Kickstarter's goal will be yet, but the crowdfunding campaign launches on September 20, so stay tuned.
James Pond creator Chris Sorrell talks about bringing James Pond back for another adventure in the YouTube video below.
Our TakeI never really played any of the James Pond games, but I think the name is funny. Still, there was one time, back when I was a kid, where my mom took me to a game store and told me I could pick any game I wanted. I almost picked James Pond.

Amazing story at the bottom there, Ben.
reminds me of EarthWorm JIM!
I remember playing this with my nephew in the early 90's. I didnt think much of it back then so I dont see and nostalgia value in it.
always knew of james pond, but never played any of the games. they seem pretty fun though.
Oh goodness. Please don't.
James Pond? Really?
This is another example of an older franchise that people somewhat remember but don't want to kickstart. This game will be lucky to get its Kickstarter funds.
