Drawful 2 Now Available on Nintendo Switch™

Jackbox Games’ hit party game joins The Jackbox Party Packs 2, 3 & 4 on the Nintendo eShop

Jackbox Games has announced that Drawful 2, the hilariously artful party game, is now available as a standalone title on Nintendo Switch™ consoles via the Nintendo eShop for $9.99. Drawful 2 joins other Nintendo Switch offerings from Jackbox Games, including The Jackbox Party Packs 2, 3 and 4.

The sequel to Drawful, the beloved game of terrible art, Drawful 2 challenges players to create weird, funny drawings in response to nonsensical prompts. Additional features in the sequel include more prompts than ever before, the ability to share animated GIFs of your creations on social media with the click of a button, and, by popular demand, the option to use a SECOND color in your drawings.

Players can even create custom episodes with their own prompts. Remember that time your buddy kept saying “gravy” in response to literally everything? That’s five prompts worth of material right there. Create custom episodes for special occasions like birthday parties, wedding showers, the birth of your friend’s weird-looking baby and more!

Drawful 2 also includes several new streamer-friendly features. Tame the internet with censoring features that let the VIP (the first player to join) skip drawings or block out answers. Avoid even more risky business by activating the Family Friendly setting. Streamers can also extend timers to ensure the audience watching has as much time as possible to vote or submit their drawings.

Drawful 2 requires a minimum of three players and supports up to eight players, plus an audience of up to 10,000 members.

Drawful 2 is rated T (Teen) by the ESRB. For the latest from Jackbox Games, visit www.jackboxgames.com, and follow the studio on Facebook, InstagramTwitter, YouTube and Twitch.

You Don’t Know Jack is Coming to Jackbox Party Pack 5

You Don’t Know Jack is Coming to Jackbox Party Pack 5

Yes, you read that right, we’re making a new You Don’t Know Jack. If you missed our reveal trailer at C2E2 or PAX East, here it is in all its teasery glory:

We know you probably have a lot of questions, so we’re going to guess what they are and then just answer the easy ones.

Is this the same old You Don’t Know Jack I know and love?
Yes! Cookie returns with all-new twisted trivia questions and the latest in creative insults for you and your fellow players. Fan favorite question types are back, including the DisOrDat and the triumphant return of the Gibberish Question.

But… there’s new stuff too right?
Yes! We didn’t want to do another YDKJ just because we could. We wanted to wait until we had a fresh take on the classic formula. This version sees the game (and Cookie) acquired by the friendly corporate overlords at Binjpipe, your premiere media bingeing streaming service. It’s a big scenery change that’s led us to update the game in really fun ways, and given us a ton of new stuff to make fun of.

I was hoping for a list of easy to digest bullet points?
Okay fine. Here are just a few of the features you can expect in the new You Don’t Know Jack:

  • Eight player support
  • Bigger, crazier Jack Attack
  • New question types
  • Audience integration
  • Brand new fart sounds
  • Streaming features
  • Begrudging meme references
  • New ways to Screw
  • A lot of old fart sounds too
  • More than one Frasier joke for some reason

What if I’ve never played a You Don’t Know Jack game before?
Here’s a quick recap of what you missed in past installments: a lot of questions about The Brady Bunch. Now that you’re caught up, you should be ready to jump into the new game!

Do I use my phone to play? Because I have OPINIONS about that….
Yes, like all of our Party Pack games, you use your phone (or other web-enabled device) as your controller. It’s what lets us support eight players, the audience, and question types with unique interactions. If you’ve played any of our recent games, you’ve probably seen that this works pretty well. If you haven’t, know that we’re designing this You Don’t Know Jack from the ground up with the strengths of phone controllers in mind.

Can I play single-player?
Yes. We’re making a lot of tweaks that we hope will make this YDKJ very accessible to new players, but if you STILL can’t convince your dumb friends to play with you, you can always play with yourself.

Great! When can I play it?
You Don’t Know Jack (full name TBD) will be one of five games included in The Jackbox Party Pack 5, coming Fall 2018 to PC, consoles, and major digital platforms. But, if you can’t wait that long, check out our weekly interactive live streams on Twitch and Youtube. It’s your best chance to see and play our games before anyone else!

Wait, I get You Don’t Know Jack AND four other games??
Yeah and the other games are awesome too. If you want to stay up to date, sign up with your email below, and don’t forget to follow our Twitter and Facebook.
