The main event at IndyPopCon is Brawl 2016 and Jackbox Games will be bringing our brass knuckles to Indianapolis on June 17.
PopCon Brawl 2016 will pit two teams, head to head, in a series of gaming challenges that earn them points for their team and cash towards their designated charity. The stakes increase each round as the games swap and the players are adjusted. Our competitors are asked to flex their diverse gaming muscles or risk facing a series of extremely brutal punishments for the losers. (Brutal for them… for us, they’ll be hilarious!)
We will be providing two of the games these teams will be playing: The soon-to-be-released Drawful 2 and the first-ever public look at Quiplash 2 with some very special Quiplash prompts made especially for the event.
If you’re going to IndyPopCon, this event should not be missed.
Now that we’ve been doing our weekly Friday Twitch stream for over a year, we’re excited to finally participate in Extra Life this fall. For those who don’t know, Extra Life is a charity where gamers raise money for Childrens Miracle Network hospitals by doing what they do best: playing a crapton of games.
We’ll by participating with an extra-long not-quite-24-hour-but-still-pretty-long Twitch stream on Friday, November 13. Spooooooky. Instead of streaming from 2PM-3PM we’ll be streaming from 9AM until at least 2AM.
Stay tuned to this page and follow @jackboxgames on twitter for the latest updates.
How Can I Help?
Lots of ways! The easiest way is by donating money to our Extra Life Team. You can also join our team and help raise money by doing your own fundraising streams. We will have some prizes for the biggest non-Jackbox fundraiser on our team. Otherwise, just spread the word by sharing this post on social media. And finally, watch our stream: http://twitch.tv/jackboxgames.
Why Aren’t You Streaming on November 7th Like Everyone Else
Because we’re not everyone else! Also, we thought we’d spread out a little bit. Also, November 7th isn’t Friday the 13th.
Will You Give Away Codes?
YES! We will be giving away codes — not just for our games, but we’ve reached out to our game dev friends and they’ve donated a bunch of other great games for us to give away too. There’s some great stuff, but you’ll need to tune in to get it. Giveaways include:
- The Jackbox Party Pack (Jackbox Games)
- The Jackbox Party Pack 2 (Jackbox Games)
- Quiplash (Jackbox Games)
- You Don’t Hear Jack (1 & 2) (Jackbox Games)
- Capsule Force (Iron Galaxy)
- Divekick (Iron Galaxy)
- Saints Row IV (Volition)
- Gat out of Hell (Volition)
- Kingdom (Raw Fury)
- Minecraft Story Mode Season Pass (Telltale Games)
- The Telltale Collection (Telltale Games)
And we’re still collecting new games to give away.
Are You Only Going To Play Your Games?
Would that be so bad? But no, we won’t. We’ll definitely be playing lots of our games but we’ll be playing other games too. Have suggestions for what we should do? Tweet them to @jackboxgames with the hashtag #ExtraLife
What Hospital Are You Supporting
We’re supporting the Ann and Robert H. Lurie Children’s Memorial Hospital in Chicago.
As our Quiplash kickstarter campaign winds down — there’s only 5 hours left to join in the fun and back the project — we’re excited to announce that we will be debuting the game on the C2E2 Live Main Stage.
For those not familiar, C2E2 is the Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo. Twitch TV hosts a live stream at C2E2 for the duration of the conference and we will be joining the hosts on Friday, April 24th at 4:45 PM to show off the current state of Quiplash. (Spoiler: it’s looking pretty good.)
We will also allow anyone watching to join in and play along, whether they are in person at the event or watching the stream on Twitch.
Hope to see you there!
