Quiz Climber to pit players against their friends in a test of trivial knowledge
Chillingo is getting in on the iOS social games movement by pitting friends against one another. In trivia, that is. The publisher has just announced that they’re joining forces with Relentless Software (the developer behind popular games like Blue Toad Murder Files for PC and the Buzz! franchise on PlayStation consoles) to create Quiz Climber, a new social game that will feature players competing against each other with trivia knowledge.
The game is “a social quiz” where players compete against their friends, and will feature thousands of questions that players will answer, and then check the leaderboards to see how they compare to their friends. It’s a simple concept, but the developers are promising that it’s also an engaging one.
According to Andrew Eades, Relentless Software’s Executive Director, “The gameplay sounds simple but it’s amazingly addictive as you overtake your friends whilst climbing the leaderboards.”
Exactly what type of questions the game is set to contain or just what the play experience is like remains to be seen. That said, we shouldn’t have to wait for too long to find out: Quiz Climber will be on display at the Game Developer’s Console at the end of this month, where more details will be made available.
