Jagex is gearing up to host interactive RuneScape quiz shows using technology from Codices, which allows Twitch streamers to create their own custom quiz shows. Called Quiz Kit, Codices' tech boasts of having 1.7 million unique players across over 500 monthly active broadcasters, and it will soon be adding the makers of one of the world's biggest free-to-play MMOs to that number.

The quizzes will start in late July and you can participate via the RuneScape and Jagex Twitch channels. Jagex hasn't provided any information on what sort of stakes you'll be playing for, but we'd wager that some kind of RuneScape goodies will be in the offing.

You can also learn more about Quiz Kit, and even set up your own free quizzes on Twitch, on the extension's website. So, who's up for some live Hi-Lo?

I think its a good idea, all idea are good, but who needs stuff overcrowding the screen.
Its bad enough staring at other gamer's faces and their backgrounds or none. I mean, sometimes gamer's overkill their looks, meaning they over blow the picture that covers the screen space. Game viewers like to see or hear players playing the game but they definitely do not like overcrowded screens! As they want to view the game for what it is, not things in the way. Imagine going to watch a concert and having some prat with their body in the way, = no fun.
Too much overcrowding of the screen with junk isn't a happy place for game viewers, unless you make it JUST a quiz channel with overcrowded icons and speech bubbles.
Its a no, from me.
