Here at Jackbox games, we try to be unpredictable. Sure, every entry in our critically-acclaimed series of party game collections has included the words “The Jackbox Party Pack,” but each one has a completely different number at the end. So, when we decided to make a new one this year, we rolled our twenty-sided die as usual. It landed on two, but we did that one already. So, after nine more re-rolls, we are excited to announce The Jackbox Party Pack 4, coming to major digital marketplaces this Fall!
And, as you might have guessed from that logo up there, the first game in the pack is Fibbage 3. If you’ve played the prequels, you’ll know the joy of fooling your friends with your clever lies, while hunting for the real answers to ridiculous trivia questions. And if you haven’t, there’s plenty of time! The new one won’t be out for months!
It’ll look something like this, but it’s a work-in-progress so don’t hold us to it! Just back off, okay?!?!
Especially eagle-eyed fans might notice that there are 10 choices in that screenshot, rather than the traditional max of nine. That’s because this time around, the audience gets to join the fun by voting on their own decoy lies, and guessing the truth along with the players. Now, fooling the audience can really boost your score, so make sure to get as many gullible people as possible to join!
There’s a lot more to say about Fibbage 3 and JPP4, but that’s all we can reveal right now. Stay tuned to the blog, and follow us on Twitter and Twitch for more info!
I wanted to write a blog post showing off some of the amazing drawing people have made in Drawful — and there have been some amazing drawings. Unfortunately, they’re all dongs. Or butts. Or poop. Or butts with poop coming out of them.
Sometimes there’s a really lovely drawing, but the user’s icon is a wiener.
Case in point: here’s a drawing for “guillotine accident.”
During last Friday’s TwitchTV stream, we had some technical difficulties with the audio, so Steve-o had to man the whiteboard and write out what we were doing. Luckily, we just wanted to show videos of some of our never-made concepts.
Here’s Steve-o introducing “Willy Pee,” a game where you watch a video of a dog walking up to something and you have to choose whether or not he will pee on it.
Wonder why that one never got made.
Jackbox Games is proud to be part of Chicago’s game design community — a group that has spawned some truly fun, weird, and hilarious games.
Chicago’s own Andy Patton is funding a game called “Speakeasy” on Kickstarter right now. In fact, there’s just 24 hours left to get on board. While it has already reached its main goal, there are some fantastic additions to the game if certain funding milestones are reached.
What is it?
Speakeasy is a game of social deduction. Think Werewolf + the social manipulation of Survivor + the last five minutes of the Godfather.
Update: Kickstarter successful! If you’d still like to get a copy of the game, you can buy one here: http://thegamehaschanged.net/speakeasy/.
