Codices’ revolutionary technology to power interactive quizzes for RuneScape

8th July 2019, Falmouth, United Kingdom: Codices, producer of the leading game show extension on Twitch, has partnered with Jagex, creator of the legendary MMORPG RuneScape, to broadcast live interactive quiz shows on the official RuneScape Twitch channels www.twitch.tv/runescape and www.twitch.tv/jagex. The first shows are scheduled to take place in late July 2019 and will allow thousands of fans to play along with RuneScape-themed quizzes for the first time.

Codices, a team of interactive show pioneers who have been behind mould-breaking hits HQ Trivia and Big Brother, launched Quiz Kit in October 2018 enabling Twitch streamers and brands to effortlessly host live interactive, player-driven game shows. Recent updates include weekly ready-made quizzes and monetisation options.

Speaking on the partnership, Codices CEO Tim Edwards said:

“Since launching Quiz Kit, we’ve had 1.7million unique players and over 500 monthly active broadcasters providing streamers and brands a cost effective, hassle free way to engage and retain audiences. I’m over the moon to be able to offer our expertise and experience to a forward-thinking industry giant like Jagex.”

Jagex has been regularly broadcasting shows on the RuneScape and Old School RuneScape Twitch channels from its Cambridge studio. James Day, Jagex Head of Community Management & Social media, said:

“Quizzes have proved extremely popular among the RuneScape and Old School RuneScape communities, with players competing to show their superior knowledge of 18 years of game history. Quiz Kit offers our audience the next generation of interactive engagement, enabling them to play along competing for kudos and prizes, levelling up the entertainment and keeping players engaged with our games.”
