Doug TenNapel is the brain behind a lot of creative works, but he’s best recognized in the gaming space as the mind behind Earthworm Jim, a quirky character who was immortalized in a cartoon series, toys and most prominently an outstanding 1994 game from Shiny Entertainment that was available on the 16-bit Sega Genesis and Super Nintendo.

TenNapel is coming to the Inland Empire in Thursday at noon for a lecture at The Art Institute of California – Inland Empire in room 161 / 162. If you want to find out a little more about him, here’s his Web site.
