Republic Of Jungle PAX Announcement Trailer
This seems interesting and is a nice change of pace.
Republic of Jungle is a social deduction party game, and it’s a cross over between Jackbox Party Packs and hidden-role games such as Mafia, Werewolf, Resistance, etc. A group of 5 to 10 players can play in a Jackbox-like setting where everyone uses their personal device as controller while the story unravels on a shared screen. It can be played in person (in a couch and TV setting) or remotely over a group video call (Zoom, Discord, etc). We’ve been doing all our playtests over video chat this past few months during the pandemic, and all our early adopters in our Discord server have been doing the same, which proved us that RoJ can be an excellent remote party game.
The game has a political satire theme set up in an alternate world where animals have formed a superpower country and face political challenges similar to ours. You can learn more in our trailer, press kit, and the attached press release. Currently, we have a live Alpha version available on our website at https://republicofjungle.com/host. You can get a key on the same website to play the game, or you can go through our single-player interactive tutorial without a key to learn more about how the game is played.
