If i had to look back on my whole life, Jazz Jackrabbit was my favorite game of all time.
it started off as a DOS game, suppose to be the “sonic” of computer games. anyhow, it was decently successful from what i could remember.
then Jazz Jackrabbit 2 came along and even though it was far better quality than the first, it was considered a flop because of some dumb reason. But i LOVED it. a frantic side scrolling shoot’em up platformer starring a green rabbit was just too cool for me to resist. plus it gave you the option to create your own levels and tilesets and share them with freinds and gave you the option to play as different and unique rabbits gave it an almost infinate replay value.
plans were made to create a 3D game for the ps2 but it was abandoned (and probably rightfully so, it looked terrible). the rights to the rabbit were completely abandoned and the whole series died.
out of frustration i decided i was gonna make my own 3D remake of JazzJackrabbit 2. so i modeled and rigged Jazz Jackrabbit, but fell asleep during the process, and i forgot where i left off, got busy doing other stuff, and Jazz just floated away.
so i found him a few days ago and said HEY! what a waste of a game model, maybe someone can use him! an old fan may LOVE to get his hands on this.
so here is the info on the model:
(kinda expensive but still reasonable)
toon shaded by default
includes normal map
includes texture map
(both very simple)
(face rigs are kinda… well they need work)
easy to modify
your free to use this model and textures in any way and dont have to credit me if you dont want to. If anyone has ever played this game and just want this model, or might plan to use it in their own jazz jackrabbit fan game (or official game, all rights were abandoned i think) then i say more power to you.
if there is enough intrest, i might make a model of spaz and lori as well as other members of the cast as well.
well, here ya go… have fun
