Secret City Trails is a marketplace for city discovery games where all experiences are created by locals. We take people off the beaten path, encourage sustainable tourism help spread tourism, and promote local entrepreneurship.
During a game, players solve a trail of riddles via a web app (in their phone’s browser). No downloads are needed, just a little bit (2MB) of data. All games take players exploring a city’s hidden gems as well as secrets hiding in plain sight. Along with each riddle, players unlock stories about history, culture, and art - as well as (secret) local recommendations to wonderful, independent shops, cafes, and bars.
The 90+ adventures are created by locals in 40+ European cities. The discovery games are an entertaining, interactive, instantly bookable, affordable, and independent way of seeing and enjoying a city. We promote and preserve cultural heritage by taking people off the beaten path (helping to spread tourism), educating our players (through our stories), and generating footfall to local (traditional) businesses we recommend along the way.
Most importantly, we support local communities, anyone can sign up to become a local creator. Our local creators are paid each time their game is sold.
