Shovelware's Brain Game is a Roblox quiz show game in which players take turns answering trivia questions from a number of categories for the chance to win prizes. The game, produced by Shovelware Studios, is hosted by the "Dancing Banana," an anthropomorphic banana who resembles the Peanut Butter Jelly Time flash animation. The game was published in March 2023 and became notably popularized that month, inspiring Let's Plays, fan art and memes featuring The Dancing Banana.
On March 11th, 2023, the Shovelware Studios YouTube page posted a "first look" trailer for their new Roblox game Shovelware's Brain Game, announcing that it was now available to play, garnering over 141,000 views in two weeks (shown below).

The game plays like a trivia quiz show. One player picks a category and a question is asked relating to the category. The player answers and if they're correct, are awarded 10 points. Other players also answer, with the fastest player getting five points, or 10 points if the player who chose the category is incorrect, every other correct player receives one less point. Winning players are awarded coins to use at the game's shop, which are used to purchase cosmetic items like new podiums and buzzer sounds.
