GOG’s generosity hasn’t ended in giving us a JJ2 re-release – they have also very kindly offered us some promotional game codes to be given as prizes for participating in JDC!

Starting from now, winners of JDC events will be rewarded with a download code for either one of the two following games:


A Hat In Time

These are two of the finest new PC platformers to come out this year, and will surely keep you entertained over the winter break and beyond!

Simply come in 1st place in any upcoming main event, and claim a free game code! Only one code per person however, so if you win an event after haven already claimed a code, the next one will go to the player in 2nd place and so on. Codes may also be given for other achievements, so stay tuned for any further announcements.

Get out there and play some JJ2! :)

Permalink Jazz 2 soundtrack in talks to come to GOG? December 3rd 2017

As you now know, both Jazz 1 and Jazz 2 are now available for purchase at GOG.com! (Including The Secret Files and all the different Holiday Hare releases, and the JJ2+ patch.) This is the first time Jazz 1 has been reliably available for purchase since late 2012, and Jazz 2 since… well, ever.

However, for a while in 2013, it was possible to buy the soundtracks to the series! This detail is still lacking from the GOG release, but intrepid J2O reporter camel Shadow (aka Ins0mnia) reached out to JJ2’s music composer Alexander Brandon on Twitter, and got the following response:

That would be awesome. I did connect @Flak with @SebastianWolff and a plan is being formulated!!!

(Flak, as you may remember from the last time Shadow reached out to someone on Twitter, is Epic Games’ community manager, and Sebastian Wolff is the founder of loudr, which specializes in music copyrights and was involved in the 2013 distribution of the Jazz soundtracks.)

Obviously this is not a guarantee anything will happen, but it’s something to keep an eye on. :)
