You may not be all that familiar with Jackbox Games, but it has quite the following: party games like Quiplash have helped it stand out in a sea of indie studios. And it's about to make it a little bit easier to get acquainted. The developer has revealed that it's releasing its Jackbox Party Pack 3 bundle on October 18th for PCs (through Steam), the PS4 and Amazon Fire TV users. Xbox One owners will get the title slightly later, on October 21st. Whichever route you go, you'll get the same experience.

The cornerstone is undoubtedly Quiplash 2, the sequel to Jackbox's give-a-goofy-answer game. However, the other games might be worth a look. Guesspionage is a polling game based on public answers, for instance, while Trivia Murder Party is probably the only trivia game hosted by a serial killer. Fakin' It asks you to expose a lying friend, and Tee K.O. has you squaring off using clever shirts and slogans. Like most party games, you're probably only going to play these titles every once in a while -- however, the sheer variety (and hopefully quality) of them might be enough to justify a purchase.
