Necrophone Games' comedy adventure game, Jazzpunk, was nominated as an IGF 2014 Grand Prize finalist earlier this week. The studio celebrated by giving its off-the-wall espionage game a release date. Jazzpunk will hit PC and Mac on February 7.

Creator Luis Hernandez made the announcement on Twitter (via Joystiq) earlier this week. For those unfamiliar with the game, Jazzpunk is set in an alternate Cold War reality and centers around open-world exploration. The game's main draw is its spoof comedy, modeled after classic Zucker films like The Naked Gun, Airplane!, and Hot Shots.
