The Economist Quiz


Weekly news trivia game / picture reveal puzzle with leaderboard

In 2011, Evil Genius Designs partnered with The Economist to re-vamp a weekly quiz that featured trivia about their current articles. I assisted in the concept design for this game, which became a visual puzzle-hunt to reveal a hidden picture. Scores were tracked on a global leaderboard, which prompted guests to return and compete.

I created the server architecture for this game (LAMP stack), as well as the Content-Management Tools to allow The Economist to maintain and update the game. The game can be played both on The Economist's website and on Facebook.
