Netflix Launches Interactive Trivia Game

By Jessica Lerner 

Netflix has launched a new interactive game called Triviaverse which has subscribers test their knowledge as they compete against the “Triviamaster.”

Users must correctly answer as many questions as possible within a set amount of time to earn the highest score.

In a turn-based system, they can play either by themselves or with another trivia enthusiast.


The game is divided into three rounds of increasing difficulty for one-player mode and two rounds per person in two-player mode.

The questions cover many topics, including science, history, pop culture and more.

“Whether it’s challenging a personal best to beat 4,000 points or dueling your friends to reach 10,000 points, we hope you learn something new and have fun!” Netflix Director of Product Management Rick Sanchez wrote in the announcement posted on the company’s blog.

Netflix has tried interactive storytelling before. The company released interactive stories in 2017, including Cat Burglar and Black Mirror: Bandersnatch, among others, but those efforts were not designed to be played like a game. In April, the streamer launched a Triviaverse precursor of sorts with Trivia Quest, which had a different format and featured daily episodes throughout the month.

In Triviaverse, as users unlock higher scores, the Triviamaster will get badges like Bird Brain, Preschool Graduate, Lucky Guesser, Shockingly Average, Mere Mortal, PhD Dropout, Super Nerd, Potential Genius, Certified Genius, and the ultimate title of Triviaverse God.

Triviaverse is available globally in nine languages: English, Spanish (Latin America), Portuguese (Brazil), French, German, Spanish (Spain), Italian, Korean and Japanese.

The game is available on all devices that support Netflix interactive experiences, such as smart TVs, streaming media players, game consoles, computer browsers and mobile devices.
