HiddenCity creates real-world adventure games for adults. Players solve clues sent to their phone on a journey through the city. They unlock secret locations, interact with people they meet, and solve challenges. Experiences are critically acclaimed, with coverage from BBC News, Time Out London, Evening Standard and more. HiddenCity partners have included The Guardian, Eastpak, and the City Of London Corporation. Customers rate HiddenCity, on average, 4.6 out of 5 stars.
There are currently nine games live which can be played every day of the week. In Moriarty's Game, for example, players challenge Sherlock Holmes' nemesis. Players’ decisions influence where they go and the outcome of the story.
