Goodwalks Create and play fun walking games

3 Comments Badges

Goodwalks are self-guided city games β€” play by yourself, or with a small group of family or friends.

🀳 You will be given cryptic clue riddles to solve and answer on your phone. These guide you from one hidden spot to the next, and reveal the route you will follow as you discover new pathways of the city.

Founder, Travel Massive

Hey everyone,

I'm excited to share a side project with the Travel Massive community that I've co-founded called Goodwalks.co β€” it's a city exploration game which combines puzzle solving and storytelling into a fun self-guided city tour.

I've been coding the tech and game engine, while @bryon-merzeo has been making games in various cities on his family travels. Our games don't require any software or apps to be downloaded, all you need is a mobile web browser to play.

🌍 Goodwalks are currently available in Sydney & Manly, Tasmania (where I live), and Wisconsin, USA. We're working on some European cities right now.

Key features:

⚑️ Lightning fast game engine (less than 0.2 megabytes)
πŸ“± Play on your phone's web browser (no app required)
πŸ§™β€β™€οΈ Create your own games for free (powered by Google sheets)
πŸ₯Έ Add your own brand (whitelabel)
🏨 Great for city tourism, hotels, tour companies, etc (let's chat!)

How it started: We originally developed walking tours in Sydney in 2021, hosting more than 2000 players along our trails with an average of 4.9 ⭐️ reviews! Then Sydney's lockdown started and our games were all closed down 😒 After things re-opened, we decided to fix up our trails (many streets in Sydney had changed in 1.5 years!) and relaunch our games under our own name β€” Goodwalks!

πŸ‘‰ Right now we're looking for partners / co-founders who want to join the fun and bring Goodwalks to more cities around the world. Is that you? Comment below!

PS: A huge thanks to all our game beta testers and advisors!

Hey folks,

I'm a co-founder of Goodwalks with @ian and I'm so glad to be sharing our project!

I led the Sydney Travel Massive chapter for a number of years, and am now out of Australia traveling with my family. I'm making Goodwalks in each cool city we visit, so stay tuned for some European riddles soon!

If you're curious to make your own game, you can play a demo (without being in a particular city) on our "build a game" page at goodwalks.co

The backend game builder spreadsheet is really easy for non-coders like me, and it's fun to play test your own games as you create them! The Google sheet contains the game data such as riddles / answers / hints, and updates the game immediately.

Feel free to reach out for tips or advice and happy walks!

Also, if you're at TBEX this week in Eau Claire, we made a couple of FREE games departing the Pablo Center (each game takes approx. 10-15 minutes to play).
