New Jazzpunk trailer invokes spirit of Johnny Mnemonic


5:15 PM on 01.23.2014



If you're going to validate your cult pop culture bona fides, this is how you do it. A new trailer for Necrophone Games' Jazzpunk has been released by Adult Swim, referencing the 1995 motion picture Johnny Mnemonic in a live-action sketch. There is so much visual information and so many little nods to other media (including a BBS "Door Game" bit which had me in stitches) that you'll probably want to give this three or four views to fully digest.

Jazzpunk releases on February 7 and I'm expecting to be doing a lot of laughing that day.

Review: Jazzpunk

Describing Jazzpunk is pretty damn hard. It's billed as a "comedy adventure game," but it's so much more (and sometimes less) than that. It's packed full of references, oddball minigames, and voicework that will make you laugh more often than not. For those reasons alone, it's not going to be for everyone. Unless you really like the idea of squirting a can of Cheez Whiz on Jim Sterling.more
