Steve Heinrich is the founder of Game Show Nite and a seasoned game designer, having spent over 15 years as lead designer, writer, and sometimes voiceover actor for the classic party video game YOU DON'T KNOW JACK, and later the popular Jackbox Party Pack games Fibbage and Quiplash (recently featured on "The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.") Heinrich also designed and directed the fastest-selling PC game in history (at the time), Who Wants To Be a Millionaire. He directed Regis Philbin on that game, and worked with Paul Reubens (Pee-Wee Herman) as a writer on the ABC-TV version of YOU DON'T KNOW JACK in Hollywood. In addition to all that, he's written over 20 children's books for properties from SpongeBob SquarePants to Disney film adaptations.

In 2016, Steve took a career leap of faith and left Jackbox Games to start Game Show Nite Productions. The event side of the business took off, and the team now travels across the country performing live game shows at corporate, private, and public-facing events. In 2018, Game Show Nite expanded to include a Home Division, which makes party games (Steve couldn't stay away from party game design very long.) In September 2018, the company launched the games DUH and Blank It simultaneously, available individually or as The Ultimate Game Nite Bundle. The company has plans more games in the future.
