OpenJazz is a free, open-source loader version of the classic Jazz Jackrabbit games by Epic Games.

Jazz Jackrabbit was a PC platform game.

Produced by Epic Games, 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.
