What to expect

Play a city game where you walk in the footsteps of one of Britain’s greatest writers, Charles Dickens.

You will learn about rags to riches life story of Dickens and discover the locations that inspired his stories, from pickpockets’ lairs, prisons and courts, to historic pubs and hidden alleyways. Are you ready for an adventure in Dickens’ London?

Each clue will lead you from one place to another by providing you with exact directions so you won't need a map, GPS or guide. As you solve the problem and guess the answer, the secret story of that place is unlocked.

Storyline:

You are an aspiring writer in London. Since you have been here, you haven’t been able to write or sleep. You go for a walk to calm your mind and see an intense young man in a black top hat and coat. He resembles Charles Dickens.

You know Dickens is long dead, but you become convinced that this man holds the key to breaking your spell of writer’s block. You decide to follow him.
