OpenJazz is a free, open-source version of the classic Jazz Jackrabbit™ games.
Jazz Jackrabbit™ is a PC platform game. Produced by Epic Games (then Epic
MegaGames), it was first released in 1994. The fast-paced, colourful gameplay
proved popular, and the game won PC Format's Arcade Game of the Year award.
Many people still fondly recall the shareware versions.
With the demise of DOS-based operating systems, it has become necessary to use
emulators to play old DOS games. Jazz Jackrabbit™ deserves more - and would
benefit greatly from new features.
To play, you will need the files from one of the original games. Current
releases of `game-data-packager' are able to generate a suitable data package
from the Jazz Jackrabbit Collection as published on GOG.
