HUZZAH! Our blue burrower’s birthday is upon us!
Can you believe another 365 delightful days have already zoomed by? So much has happened since our last anniversary! We released our puzzle-action roguelite, Shovel Knight Pocket Dungeon, announced our brand new IP Mina the Hollower (and fully funded it via Kickstarter), launched a bunch of cool merch, grew a bustling Discord community, and much much more. We’ve been fortunate to be able to do a ton of cool stuff and owe it all to your continued support. Our hearts are filled with gratitude.

4) How to Play the Games:
We’ll be playing multiple games from JackBox Party Pack! Click on the links to read how to play prior to the event!
Drawful 2 - Challenges players to draw ridiculous prompts on their smartphones and tablets.
Trivia Murder Party - A deadly quiz show where you match wits with a trivia-obsessed killer.
Answer trivia questions correctly in each round or you’ll find yourself on The Killing Floor, where players compete in devious minigames that determine whether they survive another round or become a ghost. But relax, ghosts can still win the game. (The host is evil, but he still cares about balanced game design.)
Quiplash2 - Players type in their best response to the prompt and then are pitted against each other in a head-to-head battle, while the rest of the players (and audience) vote on their favorite.
We hope to see you there!
