In the eye of the beholder

Woohoo! We just played the first working version of our new Picture Quiz multiplayer game mode! :D

Planeto Picture Quiz

Planeto Picture Quiz

The objective of the game is to uncover the underlying image by answering different questions correctly. The player guessing the image motif first wins the round.

If everything goes as planned, we should be able to deploy this game mode some time next week. *crossing our fingers*
