For those unaware, Jackbox Party Pack games are a collection of multiplayer mini-games played through your phone, which are especially popular with streamers thanks to Twitch integration.

This new bundle will include five games (according to the press release):

  • Fibbage 4: The hilarious and mind-blowing board game returns with an all-new final Fibbage, themed episodes, video questions, fan-submitted questions, and the Fibbage Enough About You mode! It’s such a beloved game that we decided to give it a 4.
  • Quixort: In this Trivia Sorting Factory, work with your team to sort the answers that fall into the correct order before they hit the ground! Or, play single player and see how many blocks you can sort before you finish. It’s as easy as A, C, B!
  • Junktopia: A strange wizard has turned you into a frog! Create hilarious stories for weird items, then have them rated by your fellow players. More votes equals more value and then poof! You are human again!
  • Non-Sensory: Professor Nanners is here to test your NSP (Non-Sensory Perception) in this drawing, writing and guessing game! How far can you guess where another player’s prompt ranks on the dumbest of scales?
  • Roomerang: Channel your inner reality TV star in an attempt to gain the upper hand over your playmates! Respond to prompts, bring competition and role play to avoid being rejected. Fear not though, even when you’re away, you’ll find yourself in the drama!

The game is available for pre-order now on Steam, with a 10% discount.
