Push The Button has been announced as one of the games that will be coming in The Jackbox Party Pack 6, a collection of party games that are slated to arrive sometime in the Fall of 2019. Can you tell the difference between a human and an alien? Well, you'll find out and see which of your 4–10 friends wants to destroy the human race!
This upcoming game from Jackbox Games combines social deduction gameplay with Charades. The group of 4–10 players are separated into "humans" and "aliens". Humans are given a broad subject to draw (e.g. "A fight") and the aliens hidden within the group are given a slightly different thing to draw along the same lines (e.g. "A sword fight"). You must use the clues in these drawings to determine who are genuine humans and who are the traitors.
Once you think you've got it down, you stuff the alleged traitors into the airlock and push the proverbial button, sending their (hopefully traitorous) butts out into an icy death in the cold, unforgiving vacuum of space. Oh, and there's a timer, too — take too long to discover the traitors and everyone dies. Hooray!
Push The Button will be part of The Jackbox Party Pack 6, a bunch of party games that are also slated to include Dictionarium and Trivia Murder Party 2. You'll be able to get all three of these games when The Jackbox Party Pack 6 launches digitally sometime later in the Fall of 2019. In the meantime, you can see the game in action by watching the Push The Button Introduction Trailer below.
