What Are You Stupid is a hilarious and demeaning quiz game show that’ll test your knowledge on a variety of topics!
The first thing you’ll notice about the game is that it’s fully rendered in black-and-white, hand-drawn artwork. The cast of characters is all goofy-looking caricatures with familiar names like “Dad.” The game takes place in your house (or at least it appears so) with a whole family of people to interact with. There are a total of 15 characters planned for the full release, each with their own personalities, strengths, and weaknesses.
The game is a battle RPG played like a quiz show. You have a bunch of opponents to select from. Each one you target will show you a short bio about them- (such as how “Dad” is the perfect enemy to “warm up” on). And it gives you their quiz show battle stats (such as their HP, damage, quiz timer, category, and even overall difficulty).
Then you choose whether or not you want to fight them or not- by clicking the giant “Challenge” button and bringing them into the 1v1 quiz show showdown!
The gameplay is simple. After you choose your enemy, you then answer the questions they throw at you. If you choose wrongly, you lose HP. If you choose correctly, they lose HP. The first person to completely demolish the others’ HP wins the match! Or at least, that’s how I understand how it works. It’s one weird game.
The fact that the characters in the game ask you questions about your family and that they’re dubbed familiar pronouns is just creepy and weird at the same time. It’s one of those games you shouldn’t be interested in, but you are. I couldn’t stop clicking to see what weird question I’d see next.
Each character has a unique personality that kinda fits what you’d expect from them. If you answer wrongly, you get humiliated by them and it’s very funny and very painful at the same time as well. It’s pretty embarrassing when you know the answers sometimes also. And it’s painful when a similar situation has actually happened to you (in real life).
The game is inspired by older comic stripes and the artwork is amazing. According to the dev, it’s 100% hand-drawn. Even though it’s simple, the unique characters, dialog, and the fact that it’s a quiz show battle against your family will be enough to pull you in and guarantee a good time.
