Full description
Explore Cambridge through the eyes of someone living in medieval Britain, under the rule of Tudors. Discover the city’s favorite landmarks by solving clues in an exploration game on your smartphone. Begin at the stunning Corpus Clock, visit some of the top Cambridge college campuses, and marvel at the fascinating Round Church.

Play the role of a student at Cambridge who joined a secret society. “The Gentle Chroniclers” fight to preserve books deemed revolutionary and prohibited by the king. Your mission: locate the valuable book, “Call to Uprising” — a volume that a fellow member had hidden before being captured. 

You are only one who can find the book before they do. Each riddle you solve will lead you from one place to another, with exact directions, so no need for a map or GPS. Figure out the clues and the secret story of that place is revealed.
