About Yann Defretin

Whattheshot is a movie-quiz game on Twitter where people have to guess a movie by simply looking at a movie still published every 10 minutes. Follow @whattheshot to play.

I've been working on movie-quiz games for more than a decade now. I have worked heavily on whatthemovie.com as a Developer and I decided to extend the concept of the game on Twitter, for fun, back in 2010. whattheshot.com was born!

What started as a little bot becomes something quite time-consuming with more players, more datas, and more importantly: more features (more humans interactions, more languages supported etc)! It also comes with some costs (web server, domain). You can help me continue to develop this game on Twitter and also on Mobile (apps are coming soon) by becoming a Backer!

Backer becomes automatically a VIP with some privileges on the game:

  • A VIP can ask for a second clue if he can't guess correctly the movie ;
  • A VIP can request automatically a shot once a day from a movie by director, genre, actor, year & tag ;
  • A VIP can ask for a theme to be featured for one hour (once a week) for example, movies from the 1990s etc.
  • And more privileges still in development.

You can read more about VIP features on our FAQ: https://whattheshot.com/help#vip.

To any of you supporting my game and contributing to its evolution, thank you very much! 💕
