Netflix is expanding its interactive offerings with a new daily quiz show called Trivia Quest, set to come out on April 1.

Much like Black Mirror: Bandersnatch and the recently launched Cat Burglar, the show is a narrative interactive experience meaning that every answer selected will help to move the story along.

In Trivia Quest, the friends of protagonist Willy are captured by Evil Rocky and can only be freed by answering the questions correctly. There will be 24 questions every day throughout April and they will cover a range of topics, from pop culture to science.

As viewers reach different level checkpoints, prisoners are slowly released. But if you get a question wrong, you're able to replay the quizzes in order to rack up the points needed to help Willy save his friends.

The show is available on smart TVs, streaming media players, game consoles, computer browsers, smartphones and tablets.

Interact with 20 different shows

With different outcomes on offer depending on how you answer, Trivia Quest joins the likes of The Boss Baby: Get That Baby!, Minecraft: Story Mode, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, and survival adventure You vs Wild: Out Cold, featuring popular British survivalist Bear Grylls.

In You vs Wild: Out Cold, the audience follows Grylls as he survives a plane crash, but suffers from amnesia. The audience has to help him make the right choices to locate the missing pilot and survive not only the freezing temperatures, but also the wild animals lurking in the frozen tundra.

There’s also the chance to create a personalised meditative show in Headspace: Unwind Your Mind, head to Shanghai to shadow a super-thief in Carmen Sandiego: To Steal or Not to Steal and dictate the action in children's favourite Puss in Boots, as he falls into a magic storybook in Puss in Boots: Trapped in an Epic Tale.
