Da New Guys: Day of the Jackass

Destructoid

  • Summary: They say the first impression is always a lasting one. The main loading screen in Da New Guys: Day of the Jackass has a guy with his hand stuck in a toaster. "Great," I thought, "is this going to be some low brow, cash-in?" Actually, Da New Guys is almost entirely a one-man show developed by Chris Burton (aka Icebox Games).

  • Conclusion: The same can actually be said for the overall game: Available exclusively at publisher Wadjet Eye's websiteDa New Guys: Day of the Jackass is like a tacky love letter to classic adventure games. For the most part it’s not the prettiest of adventures, but it does have some nice ideas that are executed well, particularly the complex co-op puzzles and impressive 3D finale.

Da New Guys: Day of the Jackass Review

  • Excerpt: A strictly ludic examination of a video game that emphasizes narrative as its predominant driving component tends to be dismissive of the game’s relevance to what many believe are the inherent tenets of play. Adventure games may run the greatest risk of such criticism, but a comedic approach to storytelling, as seen in Wadjet Eye’s Da New Guys: Day of the Jackass , can and does reclaim a sense of playfulness that is perhaps lost in the genre’s core mechanics, and helps...
