The studio is best known for comedic party games like YOU DON’T KNOW JACK, Fibbage, and their recent Kickstarter-funded hit Quiplash. YOU DON’T KNOW JACK has been called “the greatest quiz-show game ever made” by The Onion’s A.V. Club and “triumphant, hilarious, even enlightening” by The New York Times. All of Jackbox’s current-generation games feature the innovative “mobile devices as controllers” concept, allowing anyone with an internet-connected phone, tablet, or even laptop to join a game without the need for extra game controllers.
Players connect to games on their devices by going to http://jackbox.tv and entering the custom game code displayed via the console, PC, or home entertainment system that is actually hosting the game. This unique concept also allows for games that involve secret player input, such as typing in words or drawing on devices. The digital release of The Jackbox Party Pack – a massive collection of five of these party games – was named “Best Local Multiplayer Game of the Year” by Giant Bomb. The company is located in Chicago, Illinois.
