Looks like they got removed...
I wonder if Sega had uploaded the games without letting the TJ&E creators know about it. Thgat was one of the reasons the games wre omitted from previous comps.

The game no longer appears on the new releases list either... I knwe I should have bought them when I had a chance!

I wonder if it is staying on peoples accounts or if it disappears aswell.


I hope it comes back...it's one of my Favorite games and i would like to add it to my Steam Sega Collection.

Also if they did not have permission to add it to the collection then why did they Release it at all???

I sent a PM to JBurton asking but have not gotten a response.

Dammit. I was waiting until getting paid this Wednesday before picking them up. Hopefully this is just a bug and they get fixed soonish.

I have a feeling the TJ&E games are gone for good...

I swear.. Sega treats these classics like a Ron Popeil Rotisserie.

Glad I got them the day they came out. It has been a lot of fun playing these again. I like getting the games this way.

Yeah you should be able to re-install..

It looks like the people that purchased it before it was removed will have it permanently.

I have a similar game (Alien Shooter: Vengeance) that was removed from steam due to publisher / dev issues and I can still install/uninstall.

I contacted Steam Support to see why it disappeared, and was told that...

"The information on the Steam Storefront is the only available information at this time."

Makes me sad. Hopefully it'll come back.

I've contacted Sega, but haven't heard back from them. My next step is to drop a line to the studio that currently owns the rights to TJ&E. It's not looking good though, D2D and GamersGate aren't offering them last I checked, either. :\

Got some awesome news! I contacted ToeJam and Earl Productions to see if they could shine any light on why the games disappeared, and this is what they said.

"Hi, it will be coming back. Sega just sort of jumped the gun before we had a contract in place. Fear not."

I definitely won't miss out on these games a second time.
