Necrophone Games announces new cyberpunk comedy adventure

Jazzpunk

Posted By | On 23rd, Oct. 2012

Necrophone Games has announced its next project, called Jazzpunk. They’ve described it as a “retro-cyberpunk comedy adventure” and the trailer above certainly looks very interesting.

“In comedy timing is everything and since our world is non-linear we need to be extra conscious about when and where we put our jokes,” Necrophone wrote on their official site, and thus they went ahead and employed some pretty interesting measures in that regard.

“It is simply a map [of] a level with joke areas marked in red,” they said, describing a Joke Heatmap that determines where to place jokes geographically. “As they player leaves a red zone, the joke will have worn off and will be ready for a new one.

“This tool allows you to see more of the prospective ‘quality’ of jokes, as better ones can have a larger area of effect – requiring fewer in the surrounding area.”

No release date is given yet. The game will be out “soon” for PC and Mac.
