Jackbox Games has announced that the Jackbox Party Starter is now available on all platforms, including PC via Steam, Nintendo Switch, XBOX, and PlayStation! This pack features three fan-favorite games: Tee K.O., Trivia Murder Party 2, and Quiplash 3, all localized and voiced in French, Italian, German, Latin American Spanish, and Castilian Spanish with some new prompts for international audiences, making it the perfect game anyone looking to host a party, or for someone new to the franchise.
The games have also been updated with additional settings such as content filtration, moderation, and closed caption support. Tee K.O. even supports auto-submit if you’re down to the wire with getting your answer or drawing in, a feature absent from its base game back when it was released on The Jackbox Party Pack 3.
Here’s a quick summary of each of the games:
In Trivia Murder Party 2, players answer a series of trivia questions. Answering incorrectly will send you to the Killing Floor to play mini-games that can kill you and turn you into a ghost. Those mini-games include avoiding swords stabbed into a magician’s box, tattooing the killer’s back, and most terrifying of all… using a rotary phone! You might even get peculiar gifts that may either hinder you or help you on your escape. When one player’s left alive, the Final Round begins, where they must attempt to answer a question perfectly in order to escape as the sole survivor.
In Tee K.O., players are on the clock to create drawings and write as many slogans as possible. Then all the pictures and slogans are shuffled to other players at random. Whoever combines their drawings and slogans to create the best t-shirt wins, as designs are pitted against each other in head-to-head battles. The t-shirts with the highest votes in each round must survive the gauntlet to become the best. What’s more, you can even order your creations to be shipped right to your doorstep at the end of the game!
And finally, Quiplash 3 is a game where you show off your comedy skills. Players are sent a series of prompts to their device, and then those answers are slammed together against other players’ answers. The one who gets the most percentage of votes wins the game. This goes on for three rounds, with Round 3 requiring three separate responses.
