Now in its 5th year, Game Time is a free online trivia game and contest delivered both on a 24x7 basis, as well as via scheduled webcasts, and provides the chance to win thousands of dollars in prizes. The game system includes user log-in and registration, account points status queries, and real-time leader board.
The design focus of the games was to move beyond simple multiple-choice trivia-based games and to increase the use of graphics, animation and other visuals within the game design. The game architecture itself uses a custom Java-based game server with its own XML schema for the game questions, which are pushed onto and handled by a Macromedia Flash client.
