The Dutch technology website Tweakers.net has travelled all the way to Silicon Valley to interview Arjan Brussee (that’s the guy who came up with Jazz). Arjan, originally a Dutchie, now works at Electronic Arts in Silicon Valley.

Tweakers.net has posted a 15-minute video report in which they talk about Arjan’s successful career, and of course the various games he has created. There is a fair amount of footage of both Jazz Jackrabbit 1 and 2.

Arjan talks about Jazz’s success story, explaining in depth how Jazz Jackrabbit 1 was distributed at that time.

“People could buy the demo version on disk in a local store. But if they would like to get the full version, in the USA, they would have to call a 1-800 phone number and some family member of Tim Sweeney would get you the disk to send it to you personally.”

The full video (in Dutch) can be viewed on Tweakers.net

Yea, it would be great if this could bring us some extra traffic with hopefully some new active players contributing to the sustained existence of arguably the most successful platformer in history!
