In case you haven’t heard, Netflix now provides a variety of interactive experiences in addition to its existing catalog of movies and television shows. The most recent initialization of these games-that-could-also-be-experiences is called Triviaverse, and it takes the form of a trivia game, just as its name suggests.
How to use Triviaverse?
Triviaverse is a trivia game where you can compete against another player or test your knowledge against the clock. The Triviaverse is not an all-night event. Instead, it’s a quick game of three rounds of questions of increasing difficulty (double that number for the two-player mode). The goal is to correctly answer the questions and achieve the highest possible score.
A cackling face from the “triviaverse’s” void challenges you to some trivia questions. The goal from there is to beat a specific score in three minutes. As you correctly answer questions, you accumulate a streak bonus, which you can use to boost your score. The questions become more difficult as you progress.
Key Features of Triviaverse
When you leave and return to Netflix, your progress is saved. So, if you’re sneaking in trivia rounds between work, you can close your tab and return to your game without losing any progress! Triviaverse can be played on your phone, computer, or television.
There’s also a two-player mode, so you can drag your work-from-home buddy into a round. As you improve and set new high score records, Netflix will award you with titles ranging from “Bird Brain” to “Certified Genius,” with the highest rank, of course, being Triviaverse God.
Surprisingly, the questions aren’t just about movies and television. Instead, they cover a wide range of topics, including science, history, pop culture, and others. Some examples include “What is a diamond made of?” questions with four presented answers or true-false options for statements like “An ostrich’s eyes are bigger than its brain.”
Around the world, Triviaverse can be played in nine languages. Support is provided for any and all devices that are capable of interacting with Netflix content, such as smartphones, smart TVs, streaming media players, game console browsers, and web browsers on personal computers.
