Today the 1.25 council is excited to announce a shift in focus. Jazz Jackrabbit 2 Plus has been a fun project, but I think we can agree as a community that there is nothing more to be done on that front. The true future of gaming is on handheld and mobile devices, and fortunately for us all, we happen to have a handheld game all ready to work on! Introducing, then….

Jazz Jackrabbit Advance Advance

We look forward in the coming years to coding such fine new JJAA-exclusive features as:
  • Dynamic weather and palette systems based on real world meteorological patterns!
  • New multiplayer gamemodes for up to four simultaneous players, including Jailbreak, Assassination, and Hotel!
  • Custom levels that can be played by inserting an additional cartridge into the console!
  • A special “walk” mode, for those who can’t handle JJA’s blazing speeds!
  • A tool to import new level graphics directly from official JJ2 tilesets!
  • Definitely not Eva Earlong!

If this project doesn’t work out, we also have plans to mod the iOS Stick Shooter UDK Demo to increase the amount of blood, and possibly also make its background music the JJ1 Tubelectric theme instead.

Totally legit.

Nice April Fool’s joke.
I read this thinking “What? How would—? Eh?!”
But just after reaching the third screenshot, I remembered what day it is, and laughed. XD

Although, I’m surprised that you chose to mention the 1.25 council in this one(I generally thought of them as something that might have existed at some point, but probably fizzled not too long ago, until I read this. Now I’m curious as to what happened to them).

I’d use this :(

I would be okay with this! JJA’s multiplayer was pretty cool, all things considered. I loved the carrot grenades.

Aha, I see what you did there

I’ve played JJA multiplayer a grand total of once, with Sal, so all I could think to pick on was my vague recollections of a four player limit. It might be great; I really don’t know.
