Project Description

Gr8Quest is a Social Network Activity that aims to bring people together for Treasure Hunt Quests. Leveraging on the use of web portals, it allows registered members to create clues, publish their own treasure hunt quests and invite members to participate in their quests. With mobile devices, players can select quests, compete with other teams and publish their photos on social networking sites like Facebook.

Motivation

  1. Create a mobile application that can rival Instagram in its social outreach and Angry Birds in terms of game popularity.
  2. To bond people through treasure hunts and allow them to reminisce the olden days but with improved technology.

Stakeholders

Sponsors Our sponsors Benjamin Tio & Victor Heng initiated the project. The SMU team will be building and testing the POC. The plan of the sponsors is to commercialize this application when POC is successful.

Deliverables

  1. Mobile application: An android application which would be deployed into Google Play which allows users to download the application to play.
  2. Web Portal: A web application that would be deployed on a domain hosted by our sponsors (gr8quest.com).
