    dkirschner's Jazzpunk (PC)

    [October 2, 2016 09:26:33 AM]
    Jazzpunk is a bizarre little game about a spy. It would fall under genres of adventure and comedy. The comedy resonated with me. It looks sort of like a Brendan Chung game. It is hard to describe.

    The Director of an espionage organization sends you on several missions. One is to assassinate a cowboy in Tokyo. When you find the restaurant he is in, you are supposed to get to the back room, but the chef is in the way. The chef discloses that he is afraid of spiders, so you collect some spiders in a jar and throw them in his face. You find a poisonous fish, and proceed to use it as a weapon, squirting poison at everyone and using it to kill the cowboy. This results in some special forces coming to nab you. As you flee, you stumble upon a side quest wherein you must swat flies in a vase shop, resulting in many broken vases and a new fly swatter. I started swatting NPCs and one time an NPC turned into a giant fly, sprouted bug eyes and wings, buzzed angrily, and flew away. So I swatted more people, and many turned into flies.

    See? It's bizarre. The next thing that happens is always unexpected. There are a ton of references to movies and old video games. There is a side quest where you help a frog retrieve something in the road (Frogger), a wedding cake you can interact with that puts you in a game called Wedding Qake (a wedding-themed Quake where weapons include uncorking bottles of champagne, a cake mini-gun, and when you kill someone the announcer says things like "Left at the altar" and "Brutal matrimony;" it was hilarious), a Street Fighter parody of that bonus round where you destroy a car, except the car talks (upon defeat one time, it said "I have brought shame to my manufacturing plant"), and more.

    And to sum it all up, the end credits take place inside an alligator's intestinal tract. That doesn't ruin anything because there is no alligator in the game until the very end and you won't see it coming because (what have I said?) this game is unpredictable and silly. Love it. Would play another.
