What is Adventures from the Jackbox?

Adventures from the Jackbox is a fan-made web comic and cartoon series, based on the Jackbox party games. It is being made by the same guys behind the hit Technology Showdown series, our flagship tech series The Tech Table, and our upcoming original web comic and cartoon series, The Sage & EDjr Show.

Let's face it: We LOVE the Jackbox games. They're great party games. They're entertaining, memorable, and have a ton of replay value. Even the least great ones have some enjoyability to it. So it's no surprise that we are indeed fans of them.

Following the release of the Jackbox Party Pack 5 (which is also Sage's first pre-ordered game), we've decided to look back at the other games, particularly the characters. More specifically, Split the Room, Monster Seeking Monster, Quiplash 2, among others, but most importantly, Fakin' It, the party game that people underappreciate.

While the gameplay was fine and all (aside from it being a local multiplayer game, and not designed for streamers like us), what highly interested us were the characters and the premise. We found potential for them in terms of personality and story, and decided to go for it ourselves, creating new stories and a world for them. Thus, the Adventures from the Jackbox project was born.

So, with the development backstory out of the way, what's the series all about?

The series follows a late high schooler named Ashley Vernon (the "Text You Up" girl from Fakin' It), her living pencil partner Coach Pencil (the Pencil character from Fakin' It), and her pet cat Oliver Vernon (the Split the Room cat), who live in Jackopolis, the main city inside the Jackbox, where all the characters you know and love reside, and where shenanigans may ensue.

She eventually meets up with several familiar faces: An irresponsible, yet friendly Owen (the "Hands of Truth" guy from Fakin' It), a sensitive, yet polite Martha (the "You Gotta Point" girl from Fakin' It), a cursed sound effect-speaking Sam (the unused "Noises Off" (aka Orange) guy from Fakin' It), a pretty, but smart businesswoman Samantha (the "Number Pressure" girl from Fakin' It), and a emotional, yet cowardly businessman Alan (the "Face Value" guy from Fakin' It), all of whom are on the lookout for Jackopolis' most wanted criminal, the one and only Mr. Faker. Join the gang as they face their most daring and wackiest adventures yet in the animated world inside the Jackbox!

This will be the first fan-made cartoon series based off of the Jackbox party games, and will be designed for mostly general audiences in mind, with some form of humor for older audiences, like we usually do with our main content!

As of right now, the series is currently in production, and we will update you more on this when there is progress made.

About the Characters

Mobirise

Ashley Vernon

Your average late high schooler, who studies day and night to get things done. She's an intelligent young woman with many traits, and loves to explore new things in Jackopolis, yet she can be a bit clusmy at times. She's also always about being on time, and not being late.

Based on: "Text You Up" character from Fakin' It

Oliver Vernon

Meow. Do not be startled. While he may took intimidating, boy is he a genius. Oliver is Ashley's pet cat, but he's also an anthromorphic dimension-jumping smart cat looking to solve hypothetical situations or any life problems that not even an expert could solve!

Based on: The Cat from Split the Room (unofficially called Mayonnaise by the Jackbox community, but we think differently. :P)

Maria Vernon

You know that character from the Monster House in Monster Seeking Monster? Now she lives a married life. Maria is Ashley's mother, who cooks pretty good meals, and always shows care for her daughter no matter what situation she's in.

????? Vernon

At the moment, there's nothing we can give about this particular character. What we do know about this guy is that he is the husband of Maria, and Ashley's father. While he's barely around to spend free time with family, he is a humorous and hard-working man, and a good one at that. However, he has a bit of an interesting secret whenever it gets to night time...

Based on: One of the human disguises and the Vampire from Monster Seeking Monster

Owen

Your run-of-the-mill crazy kind of guy. He is the husband of Martha (see below), who can be a bit of a mess-up on his wife, but not too much to the point where she gets entirely annoyed. Owen is also known to be a mostly honest person. Oh, and didn't I forget to mention that he likes pizza?

Martha

Polite, yet quite sensitive. That describes Martha well. She is wife of Owen, who can sometimes get on her case for being crazy. Also, for some reason, she's really into fashion. Let me tell ya, she won't give up that trying that perfect look for her.

Mobirise

Sam

He's orange, he's a guy, he's Sam! But he has a bit of a problem: He can't speak words, but only sound effects. Rumors say he was cursed at the local Monster House when it happened. Nevertheless, he's a kind gentleman and is currently dating with Samantha (see below).

Based on: Unused "Noises Off" character from Fakin' It

Mobirise

Samantha

If you need help with tough numbers, ask this person, she knows them well. Samantha is a pretty, but smart businesswoman who is currently dating with Sam, and is also a certified mathematician and scientist. Despite Sam's inability to speak words, Samantha can luckily understand his sound patterns.

Based on: "Number Pressure" character from Fakin' It

Mobirise

Alan

What's that? A Jurassic Park III reference? Well, who would've guessed? Alan is a businessman with many emotions, but seems to get quite frightened most of the time whenever something scary or bad happens to him, his friends, or his hometown.

Based on: "Face Value" character from Fakin' It

Mr. Faker

Jackopolis' most wanted criminal. That's him alright. Mr. Faker is not only a master at faking it, but also a master of disguise. Most if not everyone are always fooled by this guy, since there are actually more fakers out there that look just like him. But this particular one rules them all.

Based on: The Faker from Fakin' It

Mobirise

Coach Pencil

Nobody really knows about this guy; he's usually the one you see after you write the answers down in the final round of Fakin' It. He serves as Ashley's conscience, giving her advice, while being somewhat of a loudmouth. No one knows what makes this particular pencil talk, some say he was cursed, others say he came from another universe...

Based on: "All Answers Are In" pencil from Fakin' It

What's Next?

Like we said before, the Adventures from the Jackbox cartoon series is currently in pre-production; it won't be ready for release until later in 2019.

We do have some interesting story ideas for the series, and as Jackbox fans, we're really delighted to share what we've been working on for the past few months! Stick around on this page for more updates, and don't forget we have a Patreon if you want to get a first glimpse of the series before the public sees it!

For now though, stay tooned...
