The humorous quiz game, developed by Massive Miniteam and based on the TV game show of the same name, will feature more than 6,800 fully-voiced questions in multiple-choice, true-or-false, and mini games formats that test players’ knowledge on more than 24 different subjects, such as animal sciences, vocabulary, math, and more! Kids and parents can conquer challenges alone or with up to eight players in the game’s multiplayer mode. 

The original Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader? game show ran for five seasons on FOX Primetime, averaging 20 million viewers a week in its first season. The show even expanded to a YouTube channel and a podcast. Fans can look for the video game launching later this year.
