This isn’t the most Jazz-related story we’ve ever posted, but it’s about Epic Games and their future development, so it’s at least Jazz-adjacent. It looks like Epic will no longer be making the Gears of Wars series after selling it to Microsoft. Presumably this affords them more resources for working on Fortnite and their unannounced PC-exclusive project.

(Here’s what CliffyB thinks, if you’re curious.)

 

Permalink Game Grumps play Holiday Hare January 17th 2014

This is several weeks late, but I thought I’d post it anyway. The Game Grumps are some youtubey folks you may have heard of, and here they are utterly failing to beat Holiday Hare ’94 while talking about their various memories of PC/DOS gaming and absolutely anything else that comes to mind. Enjoy!

(We don’t post about Let’s Plays and the like here very much, and I’d be interested in hearing if they’re something you’d like to see more of, or if you don’t think they really qualify as news, or what.)

As you’re probably aware, 2014 is the year of Jazz Jackrabbit’s 20th anniversary. We’ll undoubtedly have some posts on specific dates this year and the next, marking the 20ths for various specific events, but what can we do to make this whole year special, both as a website and as a community? Post your thoughts!

 

Permalink Awesome Games Done Quick charity marathon January 6th 2014

Source: schedule

In half an hour or so, someone named Vortale is scheduled to play Jazz Jackrabbit (1) for charity. I don’t know the details but you can read about them here I guess. Vortale guesses the game will take 40 minutes to beat. Shall we watch?

EDIT: Following some DOSBox technical issues, it’s started! “Get hype” as the kiddos say.
EDIT2: Completed (6 episodes only, no CD or Holiday Hare) in 37:40 with about seventy thousand viewers! Well done. I dunno if there are or will be archives of this? Research project for somebody.
EDIT3: Here’s the video!

Permalink A Blast from the Past December 16th 2013

Source: JCF thread

Most of you have probably heard of the story of how Jazz came to be. But what most of you probably haven’t seen are CliffyB’s original doodles of the “Rambo Rabbit” that became the character we all know and love. Luckily, that is exactly what Slaz has come across:

Head over to the JCF for more Jazz sketches, plus an interview with CliffyB to accompany them.

Well, that’s clear! Looks like our alternate universe Funk FauvedeBourgogne is ready to go. But wait, he needs a motive! Someone has kidnapped the beautiful Princess of the Galactic Rabbits, Princess… Princess… what was her name again?
