I want to thank you guys for doing this QL. I had only a passing interest in the game (the live-action trailer was interesting, but the snippets of gameplay I saw didn't sell me) but now I NEED to play this game.

What the hell, Darlington is my home town. In fact that's where I am now!

I never thought I would see the day when Darlo was a setting in a video game.

@razielcuts: It's not. It's by this guy. He seems to be talking to Blendo quite a bit, though, so they seem cool?

This looks real dumb. I stopped watching 10 minutes in.

...Because I don't want to spoil anything else! I dig games that can make me smile.

I had little interest in or knowledge of Jazzpunk before, let's say, this morning. I don't think I've ever been as sold on a game after seeing 5 minutes of it than now. I'm 100% in. I need a funny game in my life right now (even by UK standards, oh my god I feel like it started raining in December and hasn't ever stopped)

I really like the aesthetic of this game but it looks like one of those titles like Frog Fractions or 30 Flights of Loving where it's like "Hey, here's a bunch of completely random stuff and isn't that awesome because RANDOM AND CRAZY!" I just don't get games like that I guess cause to me, making a bunch of seemingly random stuff happen in a disconnected way doesn't come across as inherently fun for me, it's just weird.

This. None of the recent Epic Movie (not that recent anymore, but y'know, past 80/90's...) type of randomness hasn't done it for me at all, but this randomness is working brilliantly for me and does remind me more of those two movies in a very good way. Tempted to buy.

Is this not by Brendon Chung because damn someone is suuuuuure biting his style, hard.

I thought the same thing but I feel like both can exist. The art design is reminiscent but It's focus is comedy where as Brendon Chung incorporates classic film concepts into his direction/design. Although, it did remind me of Gravity Bone a bit. I was thinking more of a Stanley Parable comparison with all the absurd humor.

Definitely picking this one up.

Yea I feel like I'd rather watch Vinny play this than play it myself. Like most comedy, I feel like it would be best with other people not sitting alone on my computer with headphones.
