The creators of Vine built a trivia show app called HQ

by John_A

The Vine guys are back, but this time it’s with a gameshow app called HQ. However, this app isn’t like you’re typical trivia game where you can play whenever you want. With HQ, gameplay is live and takes place twice a day. “It’s a way to give people a chance to have fun, maybe win, maybe learn something new,” Vine cofounder Rus Yusupov told TechCrunch.

HQ’s trivia is only available at 3PM and 9PM Eastern, which is when HQ’s host, Scott Rogowsky, asks a handful of multiple choice questions live. If you answer a question correctly within 10 seconds, you can advance to the next one and everyone who successfully answers them all splits a cash prize that’s doled out via PayPal. The jackpot isn’t always the same and HQ’s creators are toying with different ways to fund it. Yusupov told TechCrunch, “We’ve been playing around with options. This Sunday we did a sponsored game that let us give away the biggest prize.”

While this sadly isn’t the return of Vine, it’s nonetheless an interesting take on game apps. “We just wanted to make something that people play with their friends and family,” Yusupov said.
