Jackbox Games CEO looks back on 10 years of Party Packs

Jackbox Games CEO Mike Bilder also discusses The Jackbox Party Pack 10 and what to expect over the next decade.


Jackbox Games is in the middle of a milestone year. Later this fall, the studio is releasing its tenth Jackbox Party Pack, marking a full decade of Jackbox Party Pack goodness. We recently had a chance to speak with Jackbox Games CEO Mike Bilder about what's coming up in The Jackbox Party Pack 10 as well as what's on the horizon for the next decade at Jackbox Games.

"As a studio, we're larger than we've ever been, staffing-wise," Bilder told Shacknews. "The intention around that is so that we can do more things than just doing an annual Party Pack. I think it's safe to say that we will continue to do party-type games like [The Jackbox Party Pack 10]. Whether you see Jackbox Party Pack 20 or not, I don't know. Time will tell on that. But it's safe to say we are working on more party games and we're working on some unannounced new stuff, as well."

Bilder goes into detail on the individual offerings featured in The Jackbox Party Pack 10. He also talks about the advancements made over the past decade at Jackbox Games, including growth alongside the Twitch platform, further exploration of accessibility settings, and building games with feedback from convention crowds like those at PAX.

The Jackbox Party Pack 10 is coming this fall to all platforms. For more interviews like this, be sure to visit Shacknews and Shacknews Interviews on YouTube.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
