StreetHunt Games, a London-based business, launched a new interactive outdoor adventure game for adults last summer which has been proving popular for date nights, team socials, and getting together with friends. The game is outside and there’s no contact with anyone outside of your team – making it an ideal safe activity in these uncertain times.
StreetHunt Games provide engaging outdoor, self-guided mysteries set around captivating locations in London – think grown-up scavenger hunt meets escape room meets murder mystery, played outside across London. All you need is a phone and a sense of adventure.
Colombia’s Finest introduces you to Jim Robusta and his coffee company – Jim’s colleagues have shady pasts and Jim has asked you to sniff out evidence of a crime amongst the caffeine. The activity costs £15pp and takes around two hours with individual team sizes of two to five (larger groups form multiple teams to pit their wits against each other). The game can be played during the day or evening. Players self-navigate to offbeat locations, solving location-specific cryptic clues, immersing them in their own murder mystery investigation.
Will Breaker is a new game coming soon with a British Museum start. Your uncle has left his secrets and estate to you, subject to a unique challenge. Can you rendezvous with his agents and decode his puzzles before the trail goes cold?
StreetHunt Games was founded by Herne Hill residents Tony and Annaliza Sturge, who love travel and seeking out unique experiences, both at home and on holidays. They’re particularly keen on immersive events, theatre, escape room games, and finding new places to eat and drink.
Combining this passion with Tony’s love of quizzes, crosswords, and board games (if you can turn something into a game, Tony’s family have done it!), StreetHunt Games was born.
StreetHunt’s Chief Technology Officer, Nick (Tony’s brother), then turned the concept into reality with his programming background and tech startup know-how.
StreetHunt’s vision is to create immersive games throughout the UK and internationally, focusing on the interaction between technology and the environment. They strive to provide fun and escapism to players in the corporate team building, dating, family, and tourism markets.
Tony said, ‘I’m always looking for new immersive events across the city, and have been wowed by productions from companies like Secret Cinema and Layered Reality. At the start of 2020, I took the plunge by writing my own game and roping in my brother to turn it into an interactive web-based game.
‘Annaliza has since turned the concept into a start-up business and in 2021 we were recognised by the SmallBiz100, a national campaign that showcases inspiring, independent businesses from across the country. We’ve gone from strength to strength, taking paid bookings from July 2021 and hosted larger corporate events from September – we’re excited every time someone tries it out!’
StreetHunt Games is a perfect way to get outside and get your steps in during January or as an alternative team social, date night, or friends meet-up.
