…in CliffyB’s new development studio, Boss Key Productions, with a new project set to be revealed this Tuesday.

There’s only one way this can end, right?

UPDATE: Well, what do you know. From a source close to Arjan:

There will be a Jazz Jackrabbit game
The rights are a whole again.

Excuse me while I look for a ridiculously excited tumblr gif collection.

Lol wut wut wut!!!

I have a doubt it would be anything like JJ2. I’d imagine it to be more like JJ3 mechanics wise, albeit more established with jump physics that don’t suck. If it is like jj2, plus would probably still kick its ass in most aspects, except on the graphics side.

Maybe I’ll get it because Jazz. But at least this would revive the community either way. I’m one of those players who is into JJ2 because of the community content, as the official content itself is meh.

My first reaction: “Holy @^%#%!!!!!!!!!!!!”

My second reaction: “[cries tears of joy]”

I’m not sure they’ve started production at all. If not, I wonder if this might be like Epic’s new Unreal Tournament game, where they solicit community opinions on potential gameplay/etc. pretty much constantly as they go along.

Whatever the case, it’s way more good news than we’ve gotten in a long time. I’ll take it.

and then maybe not

Although I was hyped, I remained a little skeptical. The first thing I questioned was “Wait he wouldn’t have the rights anymore, so since when did he get them? And I thought he long moved on from that franchise.”.

In other news, if someone would like to post this in the news section, Alexander Brandon, composer of the Jazz music, is talking about Tyrian 2000 here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1hcEgw95C7o#t=68

And just to be completely clear:
“All these tweets about wanting me to make a new UT, Gears, or Jazz shows how few people understand Intellectual Property ownership.”
From CliffyB’s twitter.

Robo4900 on 5 Jul 2014 at 12:00

Obi1mcd: Yeah, I thought he’d say something like that.

Anyway, whatever they end up making together, it’s nice to know that two of the core Jazz guys are doing well these days.

Hey Cliffy, this sure sounds like a good opportunity to make a Firefly game.

I doubt it’s a Jazz game, but if it does: – It should stay a side scroller. Mega Man X7 tried this whole 3d thing and it tunred out to be a mess` Then they turned X8 back into a side scroller and it was a great game. – Improve the boss fights, ‘cause they’ pretty sucked so far. – Bring back Alexander Brandon to compose the music. – I don’t know, just make it a Jazz game!@#%$^

Finally, we will have a sequel to Jazz Jackrabbit Advanced!

What Noogy had to say:

Ins0mnia arjanbrussee therealcliffyb Trust me, if Bosskey picked up the Jazz Jackrabbit license I’d be first in line with my portfolio.

Hare on 8 Jul 2014 at 04:10

I would very much like to see a Noogy powered JJ sequel ;_;

Robo4900 on 8 Jul 2014 at 05:02

Hare: Seconded.

master sven on 8 Jul 2014 at 10:39

Jazz is van Epic = Jazz is Epic’s

Hare on 8 Jul 2014 at 20:59

Lori is van Noogy

… Or wait… I don’t think I want to know what a Lori focused game would look like.

I’m ready to make Jazz Jackrabbit 3D Enhanced Patch 1.4.

luke11685 on 10 Jul 2014 at 20:27

Maybe it’s Jazz Jackrabbit 3D HD on Unreal Engine 4 UDK?

luke11685 on 11 Jul 2014 at 14:54

Well when Jazz 3D saving game it can’t load it.If Jazz 3D edit maps it can’t open game.
