Jazz Jackrabbit Revival appears on Kickstarter

3 Sep 2014 at 12:24

Update: The kickstarter was taken down after a copyright claim by Epic: see here

A rather unknown and small indie group Turbo Tech Games lead by Róbert Taddeo wants to revive Jazz Jackrabbit. This by making a kickstarter and let people pledge (in return for some rewards).

The game will be developed as Semi-3D in the Unreal Engine, so think about games such as New Supermario Brothers & The Giana Sisters.

They are planning to have 4 episodes that includes 3 different planets. Each planet will contain 10 levels.

You can find more info on: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/913575118/jazz-jackrabbit-revival?ref=watched_project_launched

Note: There’s no mention of Epic games on the page and the name of the series is actually misspelled in several places. So tread carefully, this may not be legit!

As I already said, I’m not going to do it. Turbo Tech Games and Róbert Taddeo are literally nobodies, according to Google, no game development credentials (or any sort of confirmation of existence) at all. The page is badly written, full of high school level spelling mistakes, and worst of all, it doesn’t mention the copyright/IP situation at all.

Don’t trust them with your money.

Design looks okay for now. His legs are slightly longer, and it’s clearly based on Jazz’s JJ2 design rather than JJ1’s.

It does look solid enough an attempt. Out of the countless revival attempts and petitions there were made, this one does actually show concepts and footage of work in progress!

Of course it all comes down on Epic, the IP holder..

“project-test (Canceled) is the subject of an intellectual property dispute and is currently unavailable.”

Ooh noes! I missed the fun!
