    The Game Is OUT NOW for 0.99 !

    Hello,

    I woudl like to introduce you our team PixelLive and our game for iPhone and iPod Touch - 'PrimeTime Quiz Show'.

    -- Primetime Quiz Show --

    We wanted to create something smaller for our first iPhone project so we went for trivia game.

    But then we weren't happy with just regular quiz game, seeing dozens of already released games all sporting just default iPhone GUI butons and all-static screens.

    We wanted to bring a piece of atmosphere of the real TV shows on the iPhone screens so we started adding virtual show host, narrated video sequences etc. etc.

    So the originaly small game somehow grew quite a bit during production. :)


    Features summary:
    • a lot of narrated videos, guiding you thought the game
    • fully animated in-game screens - we created own custom GUI simulating real TVshow graphic
    • original soundtrack reacting to your answers
    • of course a countless number of quiz questions, hi-score and more

    The game is available on AppStore at
    http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewSoftware?id=297466791&mt=8
    ..or search for "primetime" on iPhone AppStore

    It is currently sold for a shot time at promo price of 0.99c

    Looks nice

    It looks nice. I'm a bit worried about the price tag though, this'll probably be another 10 dollar game right? and i'm not sure if I wanna pay that much for better graphics:confused:

    I'll be looking forward to its release though

    The game looks really nice.
    My question is this. What exactly does "a countless number of quiz questions" entail?
    Are we talking 100, 200, 500, 1000? Will you always be adding more?
    Thanks in advance for responding.

    Hey, this game looks really good in UI terms, not sure what makes it better over all the other thousands of trivia games out there. Oh, and the answer to the question is ARIES...

    Currently we have 2000 questions in the game divided into 4 difficulty categories, so the game gets harder bit by bit as you are nearing final round.
    As in real TV show.

    Basicaly we've been playing beta version in pub with friends for 2 hours, maybe 20 or 30 new games and we never hit the same question twice.(which kind of sucked, because thats the only way for me to win ;). Im personaly terrible at quizes :( :))

    And yes, we plan to keep adding more questions in updates.

    If the game will do well, and we will get at least some of our investment back (so we wount starve to death ;)), we plan to also release localised versions (De,It,Es).

    Hey,

    As member of JollyPop Games I'm delighted that we could co-operate with Riva's team and to be in charge of programming and technical part of the development. In my humble opinion - the game is really challenging and nice boredom killer :)

    This does look great - I love "Who wants to be a millionaire" on my PS2, and this looks almost identical, so I'll definitely be purchasing :D

    Congrats on the great 3D modeling/animation intro, but I couldn't help noticing that in the little sequences after answering a question, the man looks like he's staring at the ground not at the camera :p

    Thanks for all supporting responses.

    The anim is probably cursed and lives it own life now. ;) Because I remember updating this like 6 times to get it right :)
    (The worst version was when 'Dean' was looking precisely (mathematicaly) at camera. It looked like he's rolling his eyes or that he passed away :D )

    Thanks to Apple we only now solved all the paperwork for distribution.
    The game is in review now.
    We are hoping for release in about a week!

    Can't wait! Gameloft's game was a bit of a failure in the sense of gameplay. The graphics were alright. I hope you guys do a better job :D

    Cheers and good luck.
