This honestly shouldn’t be surprising news, and it’s certainly not happy news, but a few of you took my last post in the least plausible direction, so I suppose I should post this too. CliffyB just got interviewed today on something called “Up at Noon,” and I’ll let him do the talking:
We don’t have the time and bandwidth for [a Jazz Jackrabbit reboot], man. And my gut is telling me if we ever did it, it would sell, like, a hundred thousand copies. And those hundred thousand people would love it and would just think it’s amazing. And we’d be like “wow, we just spent a year on that, okay, that sucks.” Right? It’d be a labor of love, right? And the chances of screwing it up are very, very huge. It’s a complicated problem. But, y’know, I do miss the bunny, so you never know.
Now, I know some of you are going to focus on that last sentence, and that’s your right, but seriously. Epic making a brand new game is not in the cards. If there’s anything we should be trying to make happen right now, it’s getting Jazz sold through Steam or GOG or something like that. You know, something that makes them money while requiring next to no effort on their part.
