June 12 th, 2012, Malmö, Sweden: Think you’re smarter than your friends and family? Dying to prove your expertise? Then prove it with Quizboard, the social trivia game from Planeto.
Quizboard lets players take turns answering sets of five questions. Players then navigate the game board with those questions trying to gain more points to bump up their scores: the person with the highest score when reaching the goal tile is the winner. Question categories include sports, arts & literature, science, geography, entertainment, and history, and for each question you get right you gain an extra hundred points.
The game lets you invite your friends through Facebook or try your knowledge against a random player. Push notifications help keep you informed of your ongoing games as well.
Martin Walfisz, Quizboard’s creator and founder of Planeto, is no newcomer to the world of games. Before starting Planeto, Martin also founded Massive Entertainment where he led the company to develop AAA titles such as Ground Control and World in Conflict. In 2008 Massive Entertainment was acquired by global publisher Ubisoft Entertainment.
“After having developed hardcore PC and console games for over twelve years, I felt that it was time to join the revolution of mobile and social gaming. At Planeto our objective is to create games that everyone in the world can enjoy,” said Martin Walfisz, “The launch of Quizboard is a pivotal part of achieving that goal.”
The game will be free to download for iPhone and iPod Touch. By upgrading to a premium account players get an ad free game and access to all premium game boards.
Planeto creates fun trivia games and knowledge platforms for a worldwide audience. The company was founded in 2009 by Martin Walfisz and Magnus Robertsson, with the goal of becoming the world’s leading developer of online trivia and knowledge-focused entertainment experiences.
