JACKBOX GAMES REVEALS DRAWFUL 2 AND THE JACKBOX PARTY PACK 3
YOU DON’T KNOW JACK® Studio Plans Drawful Sequel for Spring 2016
The Jackbox Party Pack 3 Coming Fall 2016
CHICAGO – March 21, 2016 – Jackbox Games, the independent developer of hilarious party games like Fibbage, Quiplash and YOU DON’T KNOW JACK®, has announced two new titles it plans to release in 2016: Drawful 2 and The Jackbox Party Pack 3.
Drawful 2 is the follow-up to Drawful, the hit game in which players are prompted to draw weird, funny and sometimes borderline impossible things on their smartphones or tablets. The sequel will boast more colors and enhanced streaming tools, including an audience mode for up to 10,000 spectators to play along and influence a game’s outcome, as well as the ability to censor answers and drawings from trolls and other generally terrible human beings.
Drawful 2 is expected to launch in spring 2016 on the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, Xbox One, PC and Mac via Steam, the Mac App Store and Amazon Fire TV.
In addition, the studio that created the ultimate game night bundles of The Jackbox Party Pack and The Jackbox Party Pack 2 surprised absolutely no one by announcing The Jackbox Party Pack 3. This latest collection will feature five new and outrageous party games. Additional details on the titles and features contained within The Jackbox Party Pack 3 will be unveiled throughout the year, but Jackbox Games has stated Drawful 2 will not be included in that bundle.
“How do we keep coming up with these packs of five new hit party games?” asked Jackbox Games CEO Mike Bilder. “I don’t know, I’m just the CEO. My employees do all the work. Love the games they make, though. What are we doing for lunch?”
The Jackbox Party Pack 3 is expected to arrive on the PlayStation®4 system, Xbox One, PC and Mac via Steam, the Mac App Store and Amazon Fire TV in fall 2016.
