JACKBOX GAMES LAUNCHES DRAWFUL 2 ON PLAYSTATION®4, XBOX ONE, WINDOWS PC AND MAC
CHICAGO – June 21, 2016 – Jackbox Games, the independent developer of hilarious party games like Fibbage, Quiplash and YOU DON’T KNOW JACK®, is back to save boring parties with the new multiplayer* party game Drawful 2, which challenges players to draw weird, funny and often ridiculous prompts on their smartphones and tablets. Building on the original hit Drawful, Drawful 2 takes it to the next level by allowing players to make their own episodes of unique nonsensical prompts, in-jokes about their messed up friends and references to whatever they want, which can be shared using special codes.
Drawful 2 increases the overall number of totally new prompts by 50%, adds bonus score streaks for consecutive correct answers, and introduces the ability to draw with two colors instead of one, making it easy to fit even greater creativity and detail into every sketch. There’s even a new option for players to tweet out GIFs of their favorite drawings, so everyone on Twitter can share the fun (and shame) of the last game.
Drawful 2 also has expanded censoring options for streamers. Drawings can be quickly skipped, and specific answers, drawings and players can be censored, giving players and streamers effective tools to protect their games from trolls.
In addition, Drawful 2 includes standard Jackbox Games features, like a family-friendly mode that omits prompts that are more likely to lead to awkward or uncomfortable conversations between kids and parents. Jackbox’s audience mode returns, allowing streamers to let up to 10,000 viewers play along with each game by guessing correct answers and influencing player scores. Twitch account login integration is supported, as well.
Drawful 2 is available worldwide today for $9.99 on the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system via the PlayStation®Store, Xbox One through the Xbox Games Store, Windows PC on Steam, and Mac via Steam and the Mac App Store. It is coming soon to Amazon Fire TV and Android TV. This title is rated (T) Teen by the ESRB and PEGI 12.
Jackbox has previously stated that Drawful 2 will not be included in its next ultimate game bundle, The Jackbox Party Pack 3, which is expected to launch this fall on the PlayStation®4 system, Xbox One, Windows PC and Mac via Steam, the Mac App Store and Amazon Fire TV.
*Drawful 2 requires a minimum of three players and supports up to eight players, not including audience members.
