Wolpertinger Games drops price for nerd and geek trivia Quizocalypse to $1 for 90 days.

Munich, Germany – January 5th, 2012 – Due to the latest changes to the Xbox® LIVE Indie Games marketplace, Wolpertinger Games dropped the price for its geeky, zombie-themed trivia Quizocalypse to US$1 (80 MSP). This special sale will last for 90 days straight before the price will return to 240 MSP again.

In Quizocalypse, players compete with one out of four unique zombie characters for the most delicious brainz in a quiz show. Giving the right answer to many hundreds of questions fast is the key to success. And as the questions are set around topics such as internet memes, games, movies and general trash culture, Quizocalypse itself has its very own trash-y style:

Quizocalypse is available in the Xbox® LIVE Indie Games marketplace as part in a series of slightly deviant game concepts. The second part, Poopocalypse, is a side-scrolling shmup with twin-stick controls about a pigeon going on a pooping spree around the world.

Quizocalypse – got brainz?
