When the original creators of Vine set out to build an addicting trivia game on mobile, HQ Trivia was born. The concept is very similar to back in the old Xbox Live days when Microsoft hosted 1 vs. 100. Players can tune in to a scheduled time of which a host will go live on the app to start the game show.
The concept is simple, the host will ask 12 multiple-choice questions, and if you are one of the players to get them all right, you'll split the prize money with any others who maintain a perfect record. This prize pool used to be $1K, but HQ Trivia increased this to $2K as of yesterday.
To start, the team over at Intermedia Labs developed the fun app for Apple's iOS platform leaving out those on Android. After making a promise to bring the title to Google's operating system for the holidays, the team didn't deliver although they promised a new Android release date on Twitter today:
Android update: we’re in limited beta as of Christmas Day & are working quickly on patches, so we can continue to roll it out to more testers throughout the week. Our goal is to make it available to ALL by Jan. 1.
