It’s that time of year again. Spring has sprung. The creeping myrtle is in bloom. And all around the world, people are
frolicking outdoors huddled around their laptops desperate for news of upcoming video games. That’s just what we’ve got for you today with our announcement of the second game in The Jackbox Party Pack 7, The Devils and the Details.
In The Devils and The Details, you and your friends play as a family of friendly devils who move from the underworld to an average suburban neighborhood. In order to fit in, you’ll work together to complete as many mundane human chores as you can. Just like real life, you’ll deal with plumbing emergencies, annoying neighbors, and of course, your own terrible family.
You’ll use your phone to tap, swipe, spin, and poke your way through a fast and furious barrage of timed household tasks. But even a highly competent demon can’t handle everything alone. Each player takes on the role of parent, teen, or kid, and many tasks require you to coordinate with others in the family. Get ready to whine at your best friend (who is now your mom) until they drive you to soccer practice. Or viciously scold your entire friend group for not helping you make dinner.
The family does best when you all work together to keep the house running smoothly. But don’t forget, “Hell is other people.” If you give into your devilish nature and take on selfish tasks, like skipping Grandma’s birthday to go make out with your boyfriend, you can earn big points for yourself, leaving the rest of the family to pick up your slack.
We’ll have more to share about The Devils and the Details soon, as well as updates on the much-anticipated sequel Quiplash 3 and the other three games in The Jackbox Party Pack 7.
