You Don't Know Jack, changed its name to Jackbox Games today. In a press release, Jackbox says the new name better represents the Chicago studio's expansion into "a full-fledged new-generation publisher for multiple games on social and mobile platforms, Roku, and now Ouya."
"The rebranding of our studio represents the completion of an evolution," said general manager Mike Bilder in the same press release. "Today, Jackbox Games not only has the creative and technical resources to make great games, but we're seizing on the opportunity presented by new generation platforms to bring more games to market ourselves - however and wherever they best fit."
Much of Jackbox's success comes from its You Don't Know Jack series, which has sold more than five million copies on consoles and PC. Last year, You Don't Know Jack was installed over 3.5 million times after apps rolled out on Facebook and mobile devices. Jackbox introduced Lie Swatter, where you attempt to discern false statements from the truth, on iOS in April and has two other originals planned for 2013: Clone Booth and Word Putz.
