Abstract [en]

Many organizations provide free-to-use data about interesting facts about the world. What they lack is a way to present them in an interesting and captivating fashion. The goal of this project has been to provide a solution to this by incorporating these facts into an entertaining and educational trivia-type browser game. This was accomplished using various technical tools such as Javascript and PHP and it also required setting up a web server and a database. During the project some technical problems and other game-designing problems were dealt with. The result is a working game application with the potential to grow even more.
