Move over, Wordle. I have a feeling a new daily obsession is about to take over in April.
Netflix will soon launch Trivia Quest, the streamer’s first interactive trivia show. A new playable episode will drop every day in April, for 30 total episodes. Each episode will feature 24 trivia questions (12 standard, 12 hard) for viewers to answer across categories including science, history, entertainment, sports, art, and geography.
The series adapts the gameplay of the popular app Trivia Crack, while adding a narrative twist. Players will take on a mission to help animated hero Willy rescue the animated citizens of Trivia Land from the Evil Rocky, who’s bent on hoarding all the knowledge in the world.
You can check out a teaser for the series below.
As an interactive game series, Trivia Quest represents new ground for Netflix. But the series serves as a natural expansion to several of the streamer’s other initiatives, including interactive TV specials and a recent expansion into mobile gaming.
Netflix hopes to keep audiences engaged in their trivia experience by adding a narrative arc to the game. As players accumulate correct answers, they will reach milestones to release kidnapped characters. Each quiz episode has its own “ending,” too. Oh, and if you get questions wrong, you’ll be able to replay the episodes for another shot at those Trivia Land-resident-saving-points.
Trivia Quest is produced by Daniel Calin and Vin Rubino of Sunday Sauce Productions.
Netflix kicks off Trivia Quest April 1 (and no, that’s not an April Fools’ joke).
