It’s Quiz Time launched earlier this week for PC (Steam), PS4 and PS4 Pro. The title is the largest party quiz game on console and PC. It’s also one of the first titles to allow players to effortlessly stream on Twitch, YouTube and Mixer and compete against up to 10,000 players simultaneously. An Xbox One version will launch in mid-December.
The game retails for an introductory price of £15.99, for a limited time only, while a Season Pass, with special Event Quizzes and new game features, will become available early 2018. The first Event Quiz, based on the ‘Best of 2017’ is set to be released mid-December and will be free for early-buyers.
It’s Quiz Time is the work of Snap Finger Click (Act it Out!), the UK-based studio crewed by former Buzz! developers, in partnership with Vision Games Publishing. For those eager to host their own quiz show and share it with the world, It’s Quiz Time is one of the first natively livestream enabled video games and was built from the ground up for streamers to not only broadcast to their community, but to actually play directly with their audience. The game has launched with two game modes designed specifically for live streaming, with two more in development to be released in the future.
Watch the launch trailer for It’s Quiz Time below:
The first, Live Show, is a game mode developed to allow you not only to broadcast on your channel, but to host your own quiz show for up to 10,000 viewers to compete head to head and play along using the chat function. In the second mode, Play with Friends, players can select up to 7 others from theirs friends or the audience, either locally or online, and compete head to head in a standard game or custom quiz designed by you – all while live and streaming!
It’s Quiz Time features more than 25,000 different questions and answers across thousands of categories, in the single-player mode, player-customized round lists or competitive head-to-head sessions, making this trivia extravaganza the most comprehensive and accessible game of its kind. Up to eight players can play together in It’s Quiz Time, either locally or remotely over the internet, using their smartphones as a controller thanks to the free mobile companion app (iOS or Android).
It’s Quiz Time features an advanced AI game host called Salli, who follows the performance of participants, alternatively praising, helping, or pitting them against family and friends. The game also adapts to individual players, giving them tailor-made trivia based on their interest, performance and age.
Martijn van der Meulen, co-founder of Snap Finger Click said:
[blockquote]We are extremely proud that we are launching It’s Quiz Time, after so much hard work. There is no question we believe that It’s Quiz Time, from our witty AI host Salli to the streamer’s Live Mode, our single-player mode and the sheer size of trivia included, takes the crown as the ultimate quiz party game.[/blockquote]
It’s Quiz Time is available in English, (for UK, US and International audiences), as well as French, German, Italian and Spanish with questions specifically tailored to each country.
