Jazzpunk gets Director’s Cut and Flavour Nexus DLC

Comedy espionage caper Jazzpunk [official site] has had its entrails extracted, altered, and re-inserted into its codey cadaver. By that I mean it has become Jazzpunk: Director’s Cut, gaining “an extended local multiplayer mode and a ton of additional story/joke content not found in the original game”, say developers Necrophone Games. There’s also a new piece of DLC, Jazzpunk: Flavour Nexus, which inserts special agent…

Jazzpunk review

Jazzpunk isn't an adventure game, it's an interactive sketch show. Its puzzles are slight and there's little incentive to advance the scrap of a plot until each area has been scoured and sucked dry. Leave no stone unturned. Despite the setting – a techno-retro, trenchcoat-clad Cold War – the levels aren't packed with clues, they're packed with gags. Occasionally, a sidequest emerges from an alleyway…

Live Spy: Jazzpunk Live Action Trailer

I first encountered comedy spy 'em up Jazzpunk at about 2am. I was on a merry jaunt through the IGF entries, and fell into it without knowing what I was about to encounter. I was spat out the other side, grinning and desperate to talk about it. I immediately informed John that he needed to play it and that I wanted to write about it,…

Noir More Waiting: Jazzpunk Gets A Release Date

Last year, games like The Stanley Parable and Saints Row IV restored my faith in games' ability to be truly, tear-blastingly funny. I still think we can take things further, though. Much further. Jazzpunk may well be a step (followed by a slapstick banana peel slip) in the right direction. While it's littered with scraps of sharply written text, its main focus is on providing…

Jazzpunk Gets New Trailer, Winter Release Window

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…

Hands On: Retro Cyberpunk Comedy Jazzpunk

Jazzpunk isn't like other games. I mean, I guess you could draw lines to old-school adventures and maaaaaybe Thirty Flights Of Loving and other Blendo works for visual stylings, but it doesn't really take any moment-to-moment cues from either. Instead, it's a vaguely noir retro cyberpunk romp whose goal is Airplane/Naked-Gun-esque humor first and foremost. All those things sound absolutely wonderful, of course, but games…

Jazzpunk Is Retro Cyberpunk Meets Mel Brooks

Jazzpunk looks special. Very, very special. First off, just, well, look at it. The art style seems like some mad mix of Thirty Flights Of Loving and colors un-glimpsed by human eyes for eons. The original concept art could've been drawn by a pterodactyl. Who knows? The concept, though, is what actually makes it worthy of your precious eyeball fluids. In short, it's retro cyberpunk…
