What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“In this early version of "The 99" there are already some Game mechanics implemented. You can choose some maincategories and a bunch of subcategories. For now you can choose the most categories esp. for german players. Not only depending on the language knowing, but knowing a lot from the german history. But there are already some categories with english language.

We do the early access to create permanent updates for more playable categories, improvement of the performance, implementing the multiplayer and getting better graphics and a little bit story. So please be informed that many of the actual graphics will change.

In summary the target of the early access is:
1.) Getting the players experience and use it to make a specialized graohicdesign
2.) Finding bugs with players help which only can find a passionate gamer
3.) Communicate and realize ideas of the players”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Planned until end of 2020.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“- The Full Version will have a simple, intuitive graphicdesign.
- Enhance the compatibility for playing on different OS.
- Implement more interface and controller options like Touch, Mouse, Keyboard or Controller.
- The game should grow permanently. Dozens of categories are already in work. With the ideas of you - the player - the game can grow infinite.
- The online-multiplayer is already in work progress. With it you should be able to play in a 2 player duell to find the most pairs. Maybe and depending on the needed bandwith, the online multiplayer can be raised to nearly unlimited players simultanious.
-Also there will be steam achievements.
- The localization is now for german and english. But not every categorie will be in every language. This is because it doesn't make sense to let a player from America look for pairs with the target to find "which songs where no.1 in germany". So each language should have it's own categories.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“At this early release the game can be played a s single player with 6 maincategories and around 30 subcategories. Some bugs are known also.

with using simple keyboard keys (A,V,M,P) for each player, you can also play at home at a single pc with up to four players.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“It's not planned to raise the price.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“Every Player has the chance to create more functions within the community. It's planned to implant questions which can player answer and the game will implement the answers as an own level. also the player should be able to send own creations of categories - esp. for her own language categories.”

About This Game

The 99 is not a simple quiz. There are many different game modes here that only have one thing in common: 99 possibilities per round!

Take a look at the 1vs.1 [/]: Random blocks appear. You should always merge two of them as a pair. 99 possible pairs are in play. The problem? Not all blocks are always in the game. This is how you fight for your high score against time, against randomize and against your knowledge.

In 2vs.all [/] things are even more difficult. The blocks come on one side. On the other hand, there are only two large fields with assignment options. More pressure!

In these two game modes, the game is constantly manipulated while you try to find all 99 pairs. You can also let new blocks appear yourself. But be careful - the space is not limitless!
So plan carefully because a lot of timers run in the background. Each of them changes the game at short notice and makes blocks appear, disappear or change.
And as if that weren't enough, there's a hard mode. There are random events every 99 seconds (and at ever shorter intervals). Sometimes the whole screen fills up. Sometimes the blocks turn. There are already a number of events.

Things are a bit quieter in the Topsort [/] mode. There you are simply thrown 40 blocks, which you should sort as quickly as possible and without storing them incorrectly in the top 1 to top 20 places.

The freequiz [/] mode is the classic quiz mode for up to 16 players. However, currently only possible locally. Because here you have the opportunity to determine the rules yourself. Simply enter the number of players and names and you will be asked random questions. You can decide when you reveal the answer, take the next question or how you distribute the points. This leaves room for discussion in large groups.

It's also relaxed in the PuzzleMe [/] mode. You will be presented with one of 99 random 25-piece puzzles. Solve it and enter the correct answer.

ThinkTank [/] is based on the classic "You don't know Jack". In the middle you see a statement, in random order and time now other statements are added. If something fits together, press your button.

Other planned game modes: [/]

(Almost finished) - Resolution = Pixelated images that make themselves more visible in seconds.

The chain = There are terms floating around and terms belonging to them. The player should assign and pin the terms so that a chain forms under each term.
Letter salad = The solution word has unfortunately got mixed up. The player has to sort the letters.
Reime = It's Reimtime! Very popular back then, I'll try it.
Duel = based on the good old family duel. We asked 3 billion players: name ...
Extension to multiple languages. Currently designed for German-speaking countries. Which is why some categories make little sense for English-speaking players.

Other features: [/]

Completely randomly generated! No round is the same.
Single player or up to four players locally.
In-game achievements
Random events in hard mode.
Playing perks with which you can influence the current round.
Extensive How to Play Dictionary
Increasing scoring
Can be expanded as required using simple CSV lists. Gladly suggestions from players!
In almost all game modes: The 99! -> Find 99 pairs, solve 99 puzzles, correct 99 statements. Almost everything is designed for the 99.
Caution: Partially only completely solvable for nerds and very hard! [/]

Please be aware that this game is originally designed for germany. So at this time of devolopment there are some more categories that doesn't make sense if you don't know german or german history! But you can send me your own categories for your country!
