As you know, I'm someone who enjoys games that stray from the beaten path.  If it's unique - either artistically or gameplay - I'll probably give it a look.  So when Jazzpunk popped up on a Steam sale for $3 a week or so ago, I couldn't resist.  I can say with confidence that this is the strangest game I have ever played.  EVER.  So much so that I'm not even sure how to describe it.  It's mainly an adventure game, but there are lots of other random genres thrown in for good measure.  You guide a frog across a busy highway so he can retrieve his drugs.  You play "Wedding Quake", a spot-on recreation of Q3 with champagne and roses for weapons.  You play street fighter against Honda...not the character Honda, but an actual Honda sedan.  You chase a cowboy through the streets of Japan so you can harvest his kidney, which is done by spraying his sushi with blowfish venom causing him to puke it out.  You use a metal detector on a beach to uncover Playstations and used Blockbuster rentals.  Your boss is transformed into a crocodile, and you must navigate his intestinal tract to escape.

The best comparison I can make is that it feels like an old Ren and Stimpy cartoon brought to life in video game form.  It's random, it's hilarious, it's bizzare, and it's always engaging.  The one drawback is that it's not very long (took me about 3 hours to finish), but it's certainly worth the discounted price for a couple hours of mind-bending fun.

I bought it during that sale too because the Giant Bomb crew spoke highly of it during their GOTY debates. I'm looking forward to trying it out .
