STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN – March 2021 – Creators of co-op games with a broad appeal, Old Apes Games have announced their debut title, Papa’s Quiz, is coming to Xbox One in early 2021. Papa’s Quiz is a quirky, family friendly party trivia game for 1-8 players, and is already available on Steam, Windows PC, PlayStation®4 and Apple TV.
 

The Papa’s Quiz Trailer can be viewed here.
 

In Papa’s Quiz, up to 8 players use phones (with a QR code) or tablets as controllers, and can join quickly and easily without downloading any app. With over 2500 original questions across 185 categories, players can compete in multiple quiz categories suitable for both older and younger players, where the smartest and fastest player will be the last standing victor! Share your screen on Discord or use Steam Remote Play to play with your friends. Fight against or co-operate with your fellow players by tapping your controller to choose a category, then show your flair by customising your own avatar. Whether it’s giving it a fun name, dressing it up with creative clothes and use it to express your victories in the game – particularly with a victory dance in between rounds!
 

We wanted to prove that a quiz game can be both fun and educational at the same time, for all ages.” said Olov Lindberg in a prepared statement. “In Papa’s Quiz it’s not always the fastest and most knowledgeable player that will win, but they’ll definitely have an edge! That makes the game more approachable for younger players, mix in fun mini games when choosing category and quirky dances between the rounds - and players of all ages love it”!

About Old Ape Games

Old Ape Games are a maker of fun co-op games with a broad appeal. A five-person studio based in Stockholm, Sweden, all members of the team are friends from their school days in the 90s, when they started programming together on the Amiga computer.
 

Fast-forward 25 Years, and five 40-something experienced developers decided to quit their jobs and start programming together again - just like in the 90s.
 

Papa’s Quiz was released on Apple TV in October 2020, with Steam and PlayStation versions released in December 2020 and January 2021. The team are also committed to add more content to Papa’s Quiz and make more broad appeal games.
