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 players with the tools to get a rise out of their own internal laughtracks. The world is basically a comedic powder keg just waiting to go off, and you, of course, are the match. I really enjoyed what I played of a demo version, and now the final version is set to come out next month.
