Seattle studio takes “Scene It?” trivia game online

Screenlife, the Seattle game studio behind the hit DVD trivia game Scene It?, is launching an online version today at SceneIt.com.

The site is intended to become a destination for movie fans, as well as a place to play trivia games.

It’s debuting with more than 145 quizzes plus movie clips and images from popular movies. It also has social networking features to “create an entourage” and loop friends into the game.

Later this year the company plans to add fan clubs and review pages where players watch trailers, read reviews, rate movies and post their own reviews.

The ad-supported site will be free, but the company may charge for extra services. Microtransactions and premium subscriptions are being considered, a spokeswoman said.

Screenlife, a subsidiary of Paramount Pictures, also plans to let players use SceneIt.com’s content and puzzle templates to build and share their own games.

The Web is one of many platforms for Scene It? Since its debut in 2002, the game has been released in 12 languages in 29 countries and extended to game consoles and mobile phones.
