PortQuest is a family-friendly adventure app that guides users through downtown Portsmouth while helping them discover some local history.
Our adventure apps leads visitors through downtown Portsmouth with a series of rhyming clues lead by app host, Salty the Pirate!
A Puzzle Around Town
How did we arrive at the idea for a navigation app? We brainstormed for a while before hitting on the idea of a sort of scavenger hunt. But instead of collecting items, players move to waypoints along an easily walkable route through Portsmouth.
A Fun Team-Building App
Fun was a major focus, but we also wanted it to be for education. Participants work together to venture through the city, answer clues, and can pause their quests to explore clue locations.
The app was a great opportunity to explore and learn about our hometown. We discovered some fascinating new facts about Portsmouth history while making the app, and now we hope it can help others learn and have fun.
