😂 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.
