Worth Checking Out - Jazzpunk

Hot damn has it been good for adventure games, for a genre many thought was dead it's amazing to see developers constantly prove them wrong. Jazzpunk is first-person comedy adventure game set in an alternate-reality Cold War World set to be released later this year. Influenced by classic spoof comedy films and cartoons such as Naked Gun, Airplane! and Hot Shots, the overall tone of the game looks to bring a ton of much needed laughs back to the genre.

Nearly everything in the game is a gag, from NPCs to objects found on the ground the game is never short on laughs. With a tecnho-infused soundtrack featuring clips from classic big bands, the game does a fantastic job at feeling like a constant John Kricfalusi cartoon. Jazzpunk releases on February 7th, and you can pre-order it now from the website for $15.
