The multilingual pen is mightier than the multilingual sword! The Drawful 2 International update is coming to Steam, Xbox, PlayStation and Nintendo Switch on May 6th 2021
Chicago, Il, March 25th, 2021 – Jackbox Games today announces the Drawful 2 International update, which will come to Steam, Xbox, PlayStation and Nintendo Switch on May 6th 2021. This is the second title to include localized content in additional languages (French, Italian, German and Castilian Spanish). In 2020, Jackbox Games released their first title localized for these territories, Quiplash 2 InterLASHional.
“When lockdowns and quarantining began at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, we decided to give away Drawful 2 across many major digital platforms. To date, over 10 million copies have been downloaded,” said Mike Bilder, CEO of Jackbox Games, “By including localized content in the next free update, Jackbox Games hopes even more people will enjoy Drawful 2 around the world.”
In Drawful 2, each player receives a weird and unique prompt that they must try to draw on their mobile device. Erasing is not allowed! After each “artist” presents their work, everyone else anonymously submits a title that could fit this bizarre drawing. To win, players must find the correct prompt while fooling other players into selecting their decoy answer. Bonus points are awarded to those who submitted decoys that are especially clever – or silly. Additionally, players have the ability to create their own episode of Drawful 2 with user-generated prompts. Now, whether being told what to draw in your own language will actually help you do a good job at drawing … Well, we can only help you so much.
In addition to the localization, the Drawful 2 International update will include the following features:
o Closed captioning: Players will be able to turn on subtitles for the host audio.
o Content moderation: Moderators can join the game by going to mod.jackbox.tv and entering the room code. By doing this, they will be able to see all prompts and drawings before they appear on the screen and remove any from appearing in the game. This is especially useful for streamers/content creators!
o Text filtering: By turning on this setting, the game will automatically filter out offensive content or hate speech. There are three settings available for filtering: Off, Moderate, and Strict.Drawful 2 can be downloaded on Steam, Xbox, PlayStation and Nintendo Switch.
The localization update is set to be rolled out this Spring. More information on the game and the entire Jackbox Games lineup can be found here.
