Bash 20 starts this weekend!

5 Apr 2018 at 21:43

Better free up your weekend schedule if you haven’t already, as Jazz Jackrabbit 2’s 20th Anniversary Bash takes place this weekend, celebrating twenty great years since JJ2’s shareware demo was first released!

For those of you who don’t know, the Anniversary Bash is a special event in which a dedicated server is hosted over a period of few days with a pre-prepared list of 100 different Battle and CTF levels. This server will start with CTF levels, and will alternate gamemodes each day. There will likely be an event or two of another gamemode to mix things up at some point during the bash; let us know of anything you’d be interested in playing in the comments.

The bash server is due to start tomorrow (Friday April 6th) at approximately 17:00 GMT+1, and will conclude some time on the following Tuesday morning.

For now, you can download the level pack if you’d like to check out the levels in advance.

I hope to see you all there!

(You will need a registered copy of Jazz 2 with the JJ2+ patch in order to join the bash. Buy Jazz 2 from GOG if you don’t own it yet—currently 15% off!)

Wow, for me it’s already 19 years since I’ve first played JJ2. Happy 20th anniversary!

I’ll be there.

Eh… if I can.

The hype is real! I’ll try my best to participate.

Especially because of Skyward Showdown.

I don’t wanna miss Skyward Showdown.

As for modes I’d like to do… hmm… I’d be interested in a round of Head Hunters, I remember that being fun during the final event of JDC 28.

I’ll definitely be there. And finally, something GOG version exclusive!

Well then, perhaps I’ll finally get off my duff and update my Plus.

I thought the classic packs wouldn’t require JJ2+, though?

Since I won’t be able to join this year, I’m just gonna say happy birthday Jazz Jackrabbit 2, you were my childhood and still one of my favorite and most frequented games.
