Certain media outlets, such as The Verge, have predicted that the future of online games and TV are in this app. We don't dare to go as far as our colleagues but we can definitely confirm that HQ - Live Trivia Game Show comes along with a rather innovating concept and has gone viral for such reason.
A trivia game on your smartphone as if it were a live broadcast
This is basically a traditional quiz game similar to Trivial Pursuit. But his game for iPhone comes along with an innovation never seen to the date as you'll take part whilst the game is being hosted live via streaming.
The future of TV contests?
So, how does it work? Very easy:
- Step 1: the game publishes the time at which the next contest will take place.
- Step 2: the contest starts at the time indicated with a live host who livens things up just as if he were on TV and reads out the questions.
- Step 3: we're talking about multiple-choice questions that you have 10 seconds to answer (although the answers aren't visible for so long).
- Step 4: each question is a knock-out, so whoever doesn't get it right will be eliminated and won't be able to answer the next question, and so on until the final question with a small number of winners (there can be several of them).
It's an application that has gone viral thanks to how easy it is to win money. And we're talking about real money that's paid into your PayPal account. And you can also to compete to top the world leaderboard. Are we in for a primitive version of Ready Player One? What are you waiting for to try it out?
