If you're looking for a new party game that's similar to the Jackbox series, AI: Art Impostor might be what you're looking for. It's coming to PC and smartphones on September 29th, and it's a party AI drawing game where you and friends or online players will try to prepare for the next exhibition, but one of you doesn't know its theme. Cue hijinks and general hilarity. Let's take a closer look at it, shall we?

What can I expect from AI: Art Impostor?

In AI: Art Impostor, you'll give the AI a few words or a sentence related to a theme the game gives you. The AI will then generate art based on the provided words. As this is AI doing image generation, things might get a little out of hand. What's nice is that this is an art game where you won't have to draw.

 

There are lot of interesting party games from Jackbox Party Pack 9, for instance, where drawing skills are basically essential for mini-games like Nonsensory. If you don't have drawing skills, then that's a mode that's essentially closed off to you. Thankfully, this isn't the case with AI: Art Impostor.

Another nice thing about this game is that it won't take forever either, with each game clocking in at around five minutes or so. There are some mini-games in the Jackbox series that arguably drag on far too long, like Survive The Internet in Jackbox Party Pack 4, which is fun but the time between rounds is incredibly long.

 
 

Interestingly, Pocketpair isn't just some no-name developer. You might remember them as the creators of both Craftopia and Overdungeon, which are both decent games that have their own fanbases. After those games, AI: Art Impostor seems like a lateral move, but it looks like it could be a fun time nonetheless.
