Permalink Rad Rodgers - Jazz Jackrabbit inspired platformer? September 6th 2016

Source: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1093001909/rad-rodgers-the-return-of-the-90s-era-apogee-platf/description

It looks like Interceptor, the guys behind Bombshell and Rise Of The Triad, were working hard in the last few months, developing a platformer! Rad Rodgers goal is to “Bringing back the 90’s-era PC platformer with a game inspired by classics like Commander Keen, Conker, Ruff’n‘Tumble & Jazz Jackrabbit.”

Yes, a developer officially stating that their game is inspired from Jazz Jackrabbit! The game, however, uses Unreal Engine 4 and does not have hand drawn graphics. Except that awesome hand drawn art! And if you watch the trailer, you may ask yourself what part of the project is Jazz Jackrabbit inspired. Honestly, I don’t know the answer. I can only guess that it may have some gameplay similarities, like shooting in different directions with different guns. Aand maybe (now I’m giving this a wild shot here) a name association with Rogger Rabbit, who is a rabbit and Jazz is also a rabbit. Soo… Rodgers.Jackrabbit anyone? No? Ok.

Well anyway, the project is still only in a kickstarter phase and given that platformers are not the most popular genre in the universe, the success of this coming to fruition is still questionable. Interceptor also doesn’t have a huge fan base either.

But I know for sure that the people at Interceptor are a huge Commander Keen, Cosmo Cosmic Adventure and other Apogee and 3D Realms games from the past fans, so it will be nice to see this gets funded.

The not-so-annual UNniversary bash 2 has begun! It will end on the 14th of August, 2016 5:30pm BST August 15th, 5:30pm BST

To give a recap, it’s a casual event where we go through all the bash levels, minus duplicates. Whether you want to chat or play, it’s up to you. A whopping over 250 levels for both gamemodes!

However, it’s highly recommended you use JJ2+ or the LK avalon serverlist fix. However, support for plusless players is only temporary.

Permalink Create-a-Boss contest! July 31st 2016

Source: http://www.jazz2online.com/jcf/showthread.php?p=490198#post490198

Have you ever said to yourself “Man, I have an awesome idea for a boss, but I suck at animating art.” – well, here’s your chance to shine!

Unlike my other contests, the prize is not money, but your boss coming to life – fully animated from scratch!

If you have a lack of trust in contests, don’t worry – I have a good track record in promising contest winners. I got experience in animating sprites with high standards.

The deadline is on September the 15th, 2016

Permalink SilvaGunner's JJ3 "high quality rip" June 12th 2016

Source: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZuGKv4cnkpQ

If you don’t know who SilvaGunner is, he (or she, I don’t know their gender) has an YouTube channel where they post “game OST rips”. In reality, those are actually remixed versions to make them funny. I suggest giving this channel a shot, it’s really hilarious. Here’s the remix of Castle City, which is now, well, The Flintstones: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZuGKv4cnkpQ
