Project Description

Gr8Quest is a outdoor treasure hunt application that aims to bring people together for Treasure Hunt Quests. Leveraging on the use of a web portal, it allows registered members to create clues, create and publish their own treasure hunt quests and invite members to participate in their quests. Using an android mobile application, players can select quests, compete with other teams and publish their photos on a social network site - Facebook.
