Intermedia Labs had previously announced that they were planning on introducing their Live Trivia Game, HQ in the first half of 2018. The good news is that it has already made its debut a little earlier than expected, while also marking the end of the year.
Interested purchasers can get access to the early version of the application and see whether the platform is really worth it. In other words, interested users don’t have to wait for too long to give the app a shot. HQ even went on to hold a special New Year’s Eve game launch at 11 p.m. Eastern Time (ET). There were chances for interested participants to earn as much as $18,000 if their bag of knowledge is up to the mark.
According to a report by Engadget, Intermedia Labs still hasn’t mentioned whether there will be a polished version of HQ arriving for Android platforms. Currently, it appears like the game developer is working towards fixing bugs in the application and make it ready-to-use for the official public launch. For those who aren’t aware, HQ is a simplistic game by heart.
The game is based on elimination challenge, wherein players have to deal with “progressively harder questions.” As the levels go higher, the contestant pool grows from a bigger to a smaller size. One of the main reasons why the game has managed to gain widespread popularity among users is because of its live and scheduled-based nature.
Users are no longer required to interact with faceless software all by themselves. Players can participate in a shared experience with a real host with other players, who are living as well. “The possibility of winning cash adds real stakes that wouldn’t be present if you were simply competing for points or bragging rights,” the report by Engadget reads. One can’t really know whether HQ will last or the hype will eventually die off.
