I was putzing around on the Internet, and I found This article on Alienwarearena.com, dated January 30th 2013, about our favorite mean green hare. Dunno if anybody’s already seen/posted it already, but I thought I’d pass it along anyway. They mentioned J2O too, which I thought that was pretty cool.

Permalink Tweakers.net interviews Arjan Brussee July 7th 2013

Source: Tweakers.net

The Dutch technology website Tweakers.net has travelled all the way to Silicon Valley to interview Arjan Brussee (that’s the guy who came up with Jazz). Arjan, originally a Dutchie, now works at Electronic Arts in Silicon Valley.

Tweakers.net has posted a 15-minute video report in which they talk about Arjan’s successful career, and of course the various games he has created. There is a fair amount of footage of both Jazz Jackrabbit 1 and 2.

Arjan talks about Jazz’s success story, explaining in depth how Jazz Jackrabbit 1 was distributed at that time.

“People could buy the demo version on disk in a local store. But if they would like to get the full version, in the USA, they would have to call a 1-800 phone number and some family member of Tim Sweeney would get you the disk to send it to you personally.”

The full video (in Dutch) can be viewed on Tweakers.net
