But Jazzpunk is hardly anything like the Deus Ex’s out there. Necrophone has routinely mixed-in a comedic flair that players can discover in missions or wandering around on their own. I can’t remember the last time a game let me harvest pigeon pheromones and spray them on an innocent bystander – only to be attacked by a swarm of birds like a 1963 Hitchcock film.
(Then again, I'm looking at you, Ocarina of Time).
Jazzpunk is available for preorder on NecrophoneGames.com for $15. It will soon be available through other sites and platforms, including Steam – where it states the game contains “half a dozen jokes” and “5% of recommended daily intake of C++.” Healthy gaming is hard to come by these days.
Jazzpunk’s Steam page also lists the minimum system requirements for Mac, Linux, and PC (below):
- OS: Windows XP SP2 or higher
- Processor: 1.80GHz Processor
- Memory: 2 GB RAM
- Graphics: Video card with 512MB of VRAM
- Hard Drive: 2 GB available space
