Our favorite party game maker, Jackbox Games, has taken to Kickstarter to fund a new game called Quiplash.
Here’s their description:
The game is super-simple. Use your phone or tablet to answer simple prompts like “Something you’d be surprised to see a donkey do” or “A good catchphrase to yell every time you finish pooping.” Your answer will then be pitted against another player’s answer in a head-to-head clash of cleverness and comedy – or maybe just a battle of “Which answer is least stupid?” Other players – and even an audience of people waiting to get in the next game – then vote for their favorite answer. That’s right, in Quiplash, if you have viewers or extra players who can’t fit in the 8-player game, they can still participate by voting and actually affect the outcome!
Their goal for funding is $15,000. If successful, Quiplash is expected to release on Xbox One, PS4, PS3 and PC this June. If you’re one of the first 500 backers, you can select an early bird $8 download for the game on your preferred platform. Donations of $35 will get you a download code for The You Don’t Know Jack Classic Pack as well. Donations of $40 or more will also come with a download code for The Jackbox Party Pack. $100 will get you all that plus a listing in the credits of the game.
