The PS4 is Not Ready for The Madness That is Jazzpunk

By Keza MacDonald on at

Did you play Jazzpunk on PC in 2014? No? Then you should totally play Jazzpunk when it comes out on the PS4 in a few days. I'm not entirely sure how to describe it to you: a non-sequitor comedy noir story? A surreal barrage of gags? A pun-laden slapstick adventure game? The kind of thing you might stumble across on a foreign TV channel in the middle of the night whilst extremely jetlagged and/or stoned? It's strange and smart and funny enough that it's actually quite intimidating to write about as a games critic, lest you fail to fully grasp its madness with clever phrasing. One imagines its two developers at Necrophone reading such potted descriptions and sighing.

Maybe the best thing would be to show you the new trailer. Though "trailer" would be a loose definition for this sequence of images and sounds.

All you really need to know about Jazzpunk it that it WILL make you laugh, and it is definitely worth your money. It'll be up on PSN on September 20th.
