Who we are?
Why did we start Urbango?
The reason we created Urbango was because we wanted a better, more free-form yet also exciting and diverse city tour option but we couldn’t find one. We have been to many places in the world and and discovered the same old set of templates being wed for sightseeing tours everywhere.
We don’t like set routes and we don’t like forced place. We don’t like having adapt to strangers all the time or when we have to follow an umbrella. And we certainly don’t like having to read or listen to too much information most of which is instantly forgotten.
We like it when we get to explore the neighbourhood with our families or friends, and if something catches our eyes we can stop to look around and take a few photos. And if we are feeling thirsty, we are free to stop and have a drink. Nevertheless, it would still be nice if there was an invisible hand that could guide us towards beautiful and interesting places. And it would be even better if it was a game.
We created Urbango because we hoped that there were others who shared our desire for just such an urban experience. And so we combined sightseeing with a treasure hunt, as the latter is a challenging game that can be shared by children and adults.
When the game was created in 2015, a 16-year-old dream became a reality. The countless treasure hunts we have planned for family and friends became Budapest –sized!
Thank you for playing with us!
