Jaguar Shareware & Demos

With software support for the Jaguar continually diminishing, the best bet for future Jag gaming may lie in the hands of underground developers designing shareware for the Jag. This page will be mostly dedicated to the games, so if you're looking for developer info, check out the following links for software, documentation and such:

Unfortunately Scott Walters is no longer offering the BJL Modification service. To modify your Jag yourself visit the Behind Jaggy Lines (BJL) Homepage, or Matthias Domin and 42Bastian's How to modify your Jaguar.

You need a Jag-Server, BJL Kit or an official Jaguar Development system to play these games.
