Trivia
  • In the lead-up to announcing Drawful Animate, Jackbox Games released a series of GIF images that had text written on them. If you were to take only the black letters into consideration, they spell out Word Spud 2. While this lead people to think that this was the game being revealed, it was most likely done as part of Jackbox Games' ongoing joke of falsely teasing and referencing a sequel to Word Spud.
  • Starting on July 12th, Jackbox Games began hosting an ARG event for fans to try and guess what the final game in the party pack was going to be.
