We’re getting so close to TwitchCon 2017 that we can practically feel the California sun on our faces and the smell of sweaty Jackbox track jackets at the end of a full day of streaming.
If you saw our broadcasts from last year, you’re probably expecting a bunch of fun guests to come by and play our new games. And guess what? You’re right! We have some really great people lined up to play The Jackbox Party Pack 4, including our pals UGRGaming, SinfullyRiddling, and Kate Stark! And that’s just the start. We’ll be announcing our full lineup next week on Twitter!
Also, if you’re going to be at TwitchCon, come park your butt in front of our stage and see the laughs first hand. If you’re at home, get in the audience and see if you can influence the games. But you MUST, MUST, MUST NOT forget to give us a Twitch follow if you want to be alerted when we go live. Otherwise, you’ll miss all the fun.
Sorry to cut this short, but we have to make a run to the store for sunscreen, revealing swimsuits, and body hair wax.
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.
