Permalink More JJ2 concept art discovered December 4th 2020

Source: JCF post

A new set of concept art images for JJ2 have been discovered! A handful are familiar from appearing as box/CD art, but most had never been seen outside of Epic Games. There are a lot of pictures of Eva and her mother, including a shot of Eva carrying a gun and wearing something similar to Jazz and Spaz’s armbands, suggesting it may have been a design for her as a playable character. There are also several sketches that match images used in the final game, primarily menu character selection sprites and Spaz’s ingame sprites.

Check out the full album here, or join the JCF discussion here.

Thanks to Leo TCK, KarmeleQ, and Love & Thunder for their work unearthing these new glimpses at JJ2’s origins.

 

Quick news bit:

In response to questions from players, the List Server team has published a usage policy for players. Check it out here. Stijn

Yep, it’s another news post about Jazz fanworks, and this is a big one:

Jazz Jackrabbit Doom TC is a mod of Doom II that finally brings planets, enemies, and weapons from Jazz Jackrabbit (mostly JJ1, but some JJ2) into 3D. There’s even a Holiday Hare spinoff mod in the works for maximum verisimilitude.

Not to be confused with Hocusdoom, which includes Diamondus as a bonus level.
