Punchline!! is a slice-of-life comedy visual novel. Enter the not-so-sane daily life of an eccentric, good-for-nothing bum with an unhealthy interest in peculiar conspiracies and a snarky, cynical part-time drunk as they navigate the weird and wacky city of Noo Yawk.
## About This Game
Punchline!! is a short and free slice-of-life comedic visual novel that places
you into the daily lives of a poverty-stricken grifter who’s convinced that
we’re surrounded by outlandish conspiracies and a stoic, anti-social stick-in-
the-mud who has a penchant for booze and is disillusioned and unsatisfied with
her work life as you experience their various misadventures in the hustle and
bustle of Noo Yawk City!!
Punchline!! differs from your typical visual novel by adopting a scenario-
based structure with the player going through mostly self contained episodes
with their own stories, one-by-one in a linear fashion. This is akin to a
typical TV sitcom in the sense that each episode focuses on a certain
situation or scenario that has a beginning, middle and end as opposed to a
larger, overarching narrative found in serialized television.
All nine of these episodes are selectable from the main menu at the get go and
aim to reinforce the idea of daily life mundanity but with a comedic and
nonsensical twist as you come across the inhabitants of this very strange city
and get up to various shenanigans.
Get to know a wide cast of colourful personalities!! in this short, whimsical,
light-hearted and fun slice-of-life comedy.

Punchline!! was made by me in the ridiculous amount of free time I had, so if
you don’t like it, feel free to tell me how much it sucks over on the
Twitters. It’ll be the closest thing to having a real friend!
