Jazzpunk is a difficult game to categorize. You can break it down into identifiable mechanics: First Person, Adventure, Narrative, Comedy, and so on. Yet the entire work as a composition can’t easily be thrust into a concrete genre. Essentially, it could be considered an adventure game in the same vein as Gone Home or Dear Esther; however there’s far more player interaction then would be expected from these types of games. While most games in the Adventure Genre lead you into experiencing a world, clue by clue from puzzle to puzzle, Jazzpunk instead places you in a position to become fully involved in the setting to often ridiculous and comical ends.
