Warren Arnold has been with Jackbox Games since they were Jellyvision, having worked first on the Facebook iteration of You Don’t Know Jack, and later on every Jackbox Party Pack, including the forthcoming seventh one. Here he talks about the peculiarities of Jackbox Games’ design process, the finer points of comedy writing in big, collaborative projects, and the ethical mandates of moderation—with special attention to his work on Push the Button, Patently Stupid, and Quiplash 3.
You can play The Jacbkbox Party Packs on Steam, Epic, PS4, Xbox One, Switch, Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, Android TV, Xfinity, and the Mac App Store, with links to all those storefronts on the Jackbox Games website.
The Jackbox Games folks also stream on Twitch and YouTube.
You can also follow Warren (and Jackbox) on Twitter.

• Here’s the current state of the profoundly bizarre U.S. Army Esports Team situation, with its bannings and unbannings.
• And here’s that stream that showed an early version of Quiplash 3 specifically, and a more recent stream showing a slightly less early version!
