Description

Trivia Switch is the first quiz game in the world without points. In this very exciting mobile trivia game you can create your own avatar and challenge yourself and your friends. You can test your knowledge in three unique ways.

In the multiplayer mode, you can challenge up to five friends or randomly selected Trivia Switch players. At the end of each round, the lowest ranked player drops out. By answering correctly, you switch places with your higher ranked opponent, until you finally reach the desired first place.

In the solo mode, your goal is to move from the fifth to the first place by giving four consecutive correct answers. In the duel mode you challenge one friend to give those four correct answers quicker than you do.

This free game stands out from other trivia games for its unique real-time multiplayer experience, graphics, avatars and social aspect.

History

Trivia Switch is based on the popular Belgian television quiz show Switch. The game is the result of a collaboration between the creators of the television format at the Flemish production company Panenka and the game developers at Triangle Factory.

The game called Switch was launched in Flanders in the summer of 2017, boosting an immediate and overwhelming success. More than half a million users installed the game in the first few months following the release.

In order to increase user satisfaction, the game regularly changes its look. Around Halloween, the game setting switches from a cool TV studio to a graveyard, with the white desks replaced by tombstones. During the 2018 FIFA World Cup the game was played on a football pitch, with players who could dress up as fans of their favourite team and with World Cup related questions.

The game is widely known in Flanders and a loyal community of Switch players has formed since the launch. Every day tens of thousands of players enjoy the game. The overwhelming success in Flanders inspired both Panenka and Triangle Factory to launch the game internationally, calling it Trivia Switch.
