YouTube star Jacksfilms and developer Galvanic Games have officially announced the upcoming release of Be Funny Now!, a competitive board game inspired by Jacksfilms’ “Yesterday I Asked You” segments. The title should land on iOS, Android and Steam this May 17.
With cross-platform multiplayer play, Be Funny Now! allows players to “outsmart” their friends through an interactive 8-player game. Players can respond to over 600 written or sketch prompts – they can also draw fun sketches to ensure the audience is satisfied and happy.
Players with the best comic chops will be rewarded with emojis and roses, while those whose comedic timing isn’t so perfect will likely receive unwanted tomatoes from the public. Reception affects points earned and the overall winner will take home the comedy grand prize.
The game also features unlockable emotes, cosmetics, and other custom gear for player avatars. “Be funny now! takes the fun my friends and I have with Yesterday I Asked You, and brings it to the world in a format you can play anywheresays Jack Douglass of Jacksfilms. “Well, maybe not literally anywhere. Please don’t play Be Funny Now! while driving a forklift.”
If you can’t wait to try the game, Be Funny Now! will soon be available for download on the iOS App Store and the Google Play Store for Android devices, as well as on Steam. You can also join the subscriber community on the official website Twitter page to stay updated on all the latest developments, or take a look at the embedded trailer above to get an idea of the game.
