About our Urban Adventure Games

Different scenarios for ever more interesting experiences

Fed up of the traditional escape rooms? Why not try our urban treasure hunts on your smartphone? It's a brand new experience with several themes available : Murder Party, Zombie Invasion or the study of Paranormal Phenomena. Yes, there's something for everyone !

A timed treasure hunt

Just like a more traditional escape game, you'll have to find answers to riddles that will make you progress along the story. What's different is that Coddy will also make you move around the city and have you make some critical decisions in a given time. The choices you make will have an impact on your story and on your fate at the end of the day. Our adventures last for about 1.5 to 3 hours depending on the scenario you chose and how smart you are (or aren't, for that matter).

You can't really lose, or can you?

Interestingly for the sore losers (isn't it Chelsea?), you can't technically lose in our games as we'll save your ass and help you out with clues along your way, should you need them. HOWEVER, keep in mind they would come at the cost of major moral decisions and we're allowing ourselves to inflict horrible penalties that we think you might deserve at any given time.
 

(Let's be honest, we're just saying that to comfort the losers. Because it's actually a competition and you'll be evaluated and compared to your peers at the end of your performance)

What are the keys to success ?

To start, you'll need... well, a smartphone.

Thank god you're still reading so far ! You get it : no smartphone, no smartphone escape game. No smartphone escape game, no fun. And no fun? Well... no fun.

And make sure it's fully charged, by the way. We've optimized Coddy so that it requires as little battery as possible but you might leave the screen on while solving the clues, so the dumber slower you are, the more battery you'll need. Make sure you're battery's at least 50-60% charged, cause we don't think you're that smart, right?

Oh and you'll also need data, like 4G. Not much, but just enough to download the game.

Add a bunch of crazy and nerdy friends...

You know that buddy who's always up for an adventure and in a crazy mood, but also a bit slow when it's about actually thinking straight and solving things? Take them on your team and warm them up, but don't count on them to actually win the game. 

Instead, make sure you also have a few nerds in the bunch to make sure you win on points. After all, it's all about victory, isn't it?
