For most of us, Netflix remains the premier content platform for streaming shows and movies, but it has been clear for some time now that the company is looking to make its presence felt in the gaming space. The latest effort comes in the greenlighting of Trivia Quest, a daily interactive trivia series based on the Trivia Crack franchise, and a first for Netflix.
“We’re excited to experiment in this space, and find new ways to entertain our members and new ways for our members to interact with Netflix. What happens next is in your hands!,” said Andy Weil, VP, Comedy Series and Interactive Programming, who announced the new series in a blog post.
Starting on April 1, we will see daily episodes of Trivia Quest on Netflix throughout the entire month, with a total of 30 episodes. Every episode will contain 24 different questions, with a mixture of 12 standard and 12 harder questions. Interested trivia buffs will be glad to know that the categories covered will include science, history, entertainment, sports, art, and geography. The questions will have four answers to choose from, so it is time to hedge your bets.
If you answer incorrectly, you always have a chance to replay quizzes to get the correct answers and add to your score. In addition, Trivia Quest will have a narrative slant to it, taking viewers on a quest to rescue the animated folks of Trivia Land alongside the hero Willy. The villain, Evil Rocky, wants to keep all of the knowledge in the world to himself, and that is not something Willy can stand for.
Accumulate enough points, and you will start saving the kidnapped characters in Trivia Quest, which will be delivered in exclusive animations that have been inspired by some of Netflix’s most popular shows.
You will be able to experience the interactive show when it launches on smart TVs, streaming media players, game consoles, computer browsers, Android phones and tablets, as well as iPhones, iPads, and even iPods.
