Just Jokes

β€’ Home β€’ Edit

πŸ˜‚ Just Jokes is a party game where you make jokes with your friends.


Play the game on:


The game was made for the Global Game Jam 2024, in which the theme was Make Me Laugh.

We originally created a joke simulator that was inspired by Mad Libs, but realized that to make it feel more like a game, we needed to include party game elements similar to Jackbox Games. As a result, we added a multiplayer component so players could rate each other’s jokes.

The game was created from remarkablemark/party-game-template and we used DriftDB, MUI, React, and Vite. We decided not to use a game engine since it’s mostly event-driven actions in the UI. To make it feel more like a game, we added background art, stylized the typography, and played sounds and music.

The code can be found on GitHub.
