Boogerman: A Pick and Flick Adventure is a Sega Mega Drive action platform game developed and published by Interplay. First released in the United States in November 1994, and later brought to Europe, Australia, and Brazil the following year, the game is most remembered both for its initially juvenile premise, and its surprisingly-high production values (notably featuring extensive voice acting.)

In November 2008, Boogerman: A Pick and Flick Adventure was ported to the Nintendo Wii's Virtual Console service, courtesy of developer M2.

History

A port of Boogerman to the Sega 32X was once planned[10], but ultimately left undeveloped.

Legacy

Two of the game's developers, Michael Stragey and Chris Tremmel, would later found developer Toy Ghost. On October 16, 2013, Toy Ghost launched a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign for a reboot titled Boogerman 20th Anniversary: The Video Game; the campaign failed to reach its funding goal and was unsuccessful.
