Jake2 is a pure Java port of the Quake2 game engine. It features OpenGL rendering using jogl and OpenAL sound using joal. To use the Jake2 engine, you need either the data files from the original game or from the demo version. An online installation of the demo levels is possible. A lwjgl driver is included as an alternative to the jogl/joal combination. Single player and multiplayer modes are working. Jake2 comes close to the performance of the original engine written in C.
