Netflix is launching “Trivia Quest,” its first daily, interactive trivia series, based on etermax’s hit multi-platform franchise Trivia Crack, according to a blog post.
“Starting April 1 — and no, this isn’t an April Fool’s Joke — we will launch one new episode every day throughout the month (30 total),” Andy Weil, VP of comedy series and interactive programming, wrote in a blog post. “Adapting Trivia Crack’s acclaimed game play, each episode features 24 questions (12 standard and 12 hard) across categories including science, history, entertainment, sports, art and geography. Each question is a multiple-choice play, with four potential answers to choose from.”
Trivia Quest also has a narrative twist, taking players on a mission to help the hero, Willy, rescue the animated citizens of Trivia Land from the Evil Rocky, who’s bent on hoarding all the knowledge in the world.
“So it’s up to you, the player, to select the right answers and save the day,” he wrote, adding the series is “a complement and expansion of what we’re trying out with our mobile gaming initiative.”
Trivia Quest, produced by Daniel Calin and Vin Rubino of Sunday Sauce Productions, will be available on all supported devices, including smart-TVs; streaming media players; game consoles; computer browsers; Android phones and tablets; and iPhones, iPads and iPod touches.
Viewers can also replay quizzes in order to get to the correct answers and keep accumulating points. At certain milestones, the kidnapped characters are released from Rocky’s dungeons, with exclusive animations inspired by Netflix favorites. Each quiz also features a definitive ending.
