We continue to find lots of great Jazz art around the internet. Recently tumblr user PictoPatch finished a set of five standing animations for Lori, Spaz, Jazz, and even Eva and Devan, all looking ready for some HD action, possibly in a fighting game. Check them out here and leave the artist some appreciative comments in their notes!

Hi everyone, I’m from another neighborhood on the internet, the papercraft corner. I’ve just released a template for a paper model of Jazz that anyone can print and build. This seemed like the right place to share it so those who care will find it. :)

Permalink Dutch newspaper FD publishes Arjan Brussee profile May 12th 2020

Source: FD

A month or so ago Dutch financial newspaper FD published a profile of Arjan Brussee, programmer of both Jazz games (and many other games). It’s in Dutch, and only spends a few sentences on the Jazz Jackrabbit games, but you may nevertheless find it an interesting read (Google Translate does a decent job with it). It also stars Michiel Ouwehand/van der Leeuw, who also worked on Jazz Jackrabbit 2. This is an amusing quote from him about Brussee’s work on later games:

Van der Leeuw: “The code he made was so rancid that we spent years replacing it.” Van der Leeuw nevertheless speaks with appreciation about Brussee’s contributions. “‘Can’t’ doesn’t exist for Arjan. Even if he doesn’t understand something, he dares to step in and ask stupid questions.”

Quick news bit:

After spending a day as a command-line application, the Jazz2Online front page is now back to its regular multimedia visage. Did you find all the commands? You can still access the interface via the floppy button in the bottom right corner of the front page. I hope you enjoyed this little diversion! -Stijn Stijn
