Sexual education meets geocaching gaming

Explore your new university town along with sex education. That is the goal of the creators of the Hoes geocaching game. Being a student can be accompanied with some risks. Sexually transmitted risks for example ... Say what?

The theme: "Make yourself healthy (live)"

Starting a student life is always very exciting and new. Take for example the contact with the opposite sex. It is very nice and pleasant of course, but one should know that it is not all joy and freedom. Because forewarned is forearmed, the four students of the HU introduced the Hoes concept to the city. With success. 

Quest mapping concept

With a good story, the student is guided through the app and the city of Utrecht, looking for quests at various locations. Quests are fun and educational games based on GPS data. A quest can be opened when the user is within a maximum radius of 50 meters. Users are enticed with games to a tour through the city as a result. Extra fun for newcomers to the city!
