If the Cold War had gone another way then we’d be living in a world of robots with tape cassette breasts, fedora-wearing museum burglars, and sentient martinis. At least, that’s what Jazzpunk would have us believe. I’m inclined to let them after watching another of their fine trailers.
Along with the new trailer we also now have both a release date and Steam page.
More things should have a Thunderbirds style trailer. Mainly the introduction to nightly news programmes. It would give them a further heightened air of the dramatic that they currently lack. Also, doorbells. Doorbells should use that audio.
Yes, there is an official release date, we have it from the horses own word hole:
also, the Release Date of Jazzpunk is now officially February 7th! Scratch that onto your Cat Calendars.
