Jazzpunk Gets New Trailer, Winter Release Window

I Am A Man Who For Some Reason Has A Neon Chandelier Hanging In His Trailer Detective Office, Ask Me Anything

I’ve been quite enamored with Jazzpunk ever since I got the chance to try it out during GDC, and I’m pleased to report that it’s still looking great. Also, gleefully, unrelentingly silly. The Airplane-inspired cyberpunk noir slapstick pizza survival horror comedy is basically a playground of gags and absurdities. Have a dumb idea? Odds are, the game will acknowledge it and fire back with something that will leave your ribs stinging from cannon-ball-like fits of laughter. It’s a game whose first priority is humor. Everything else (for instance, logic and reason) come in distant second. Watch a trailer built around a rather, er, familiar structure below.

Here is Necrophone’s own description of the game, which is, I’m pretty sure, the greatest developer-provided explanation of everything (and nothing) ever:

“Jazzpunk is the best ‘First-Person Grapefruit Simulator’ that money can buy.”

Yep, that pretty much sums it up.

The thunderously dumb gigglestorm will be out this winter, which is nice since everything else has been delayed. No South Park? No problem. (Well, aside from  the fact that the two games deal in entirely different styles of humor and gameplay and yeah just ignore all of this I guess.)

    I want this. I think. Er. Probably.

    Gibs! Actual, proper gibs!

    Presumably living in a trailer is a ploy to clear up funds for fine bourbons and crystal chandeliers.

    Anyone else notice that when the couple blew up, apparently the bride’s head was duplicated?

    Been looking forward to this one ever since you guys first brought it to my attention. Glad to hear it has a release date, albeit a still somewhat vague one.

    I saw the adult swim local next to steams at the bottom. Did adult swim get into producing full game releases?

  7. The Random One says:

    I like the Humble logo next to Steam’s. I know where I’ll be buying this.

    You had me at the Thunderbirds spoofing; you had me harder at H.S. Thompson.
