Ever wanted to get your fix of watching Jazz Jackrabbit 2 gameplay, but done fast with all the tech and trivia explained live? Well you have not one, but two chances…and most likely even more in the future!
For a marathon coming up very soon, there’s the main campaign to be ran at Speed Stuff 4 Charity 6, happening from the 30th of August to the 2nd of September. And there’s a bid-war whether I get to play Jazz or Lori! Check out when I run here, localised to your own timezone.
Further down the line for October, there’s Speedrun Ragnarok . I’ll be running Lori episodes 1-4, and a brand-new Spaz Tool-assisted-speedrun as a donation incentive. Currently the schedule is only in the average american timezone, but localised times will be added near the beginning of the marathon.
As always – time schedules may shift so be sure to keep an eye on them.
If you want to know all the marathons Jazz gets featured in the future, keep check of this thread – more than just the main campaign!

Next up, as part of our celebration of Jazz Jackrabbit’s 25th anniversary, it’s time for a JJ1 poll! When we asked about the best JJ1 episode overall, Ballistic Bunny was the winner. But what if we’re just talking about Guardians, or “bosses” as some may call them? Who’s your favorite? Here’s a refresher video if you need one.
And while we’re on the subject, check out the Silver Jubilee CTF Contest! cooba is giving you until September 1st to create a large CTF level using a JJ1 conversion tileset. Click through to read the rest of the rules and get yourself jazzed up to participate!

It’s been 25 years since the release of Jazz Jackrabbit 1 by Epic MegaGames (later Epic Games). 25 years ago today, we learned that when crisis strikes, the universe turns to one supehero… one of great strength and moral character… quick wit and inventiveness… incredible speed and flexibility… but most importantly… floppy ears and a big gun!!!
It’s time to party! Play some Jazz 1! Read some community history! Bake a cake in the shape of a rabbit! This is our day, and there are no wrong answers.
