PlayJam will launch successful social trivia game Quiz Climber: World Edition by Relentless Software across their global connected TV gaming platform.
Developers behind Sony’s BAFTA award-winning game franchise Buzz!™, Relentless debuted their Quiz Climber app on the iPhone earlier this year, already having attracted one million plus gameplays. Quiz Climber is an extremely straightforward yet amazingly addictive social quiz, where players pit their knowledge against friends and family by answering questions on a variety of topics including pop culture, sport, history and literature. A cute squirrel ‘Quizzel’ represents each player and climbs the leaderboard to overtake others with each correct consecutive answer given. The higher Quizzel climbs, the more difficult the questions become. Players compete weekly for the top position.
