Three simple steps

Follow them to create a successful game.

1. Research & scout

Upload your local research (theme, route). Shouldn’t take more than two days.

2. Write

If you have writing experience, feel free to complete the quest on your own. Otherwise, you can partner with your own creative writer. Or we can assign you one from our network.

3. Publish & test

Test the quest with a few real users brought by you, then make final touches before launch. Perform maintenance on it every couple of months, according to user feedback. You’ll be credited in the app as the creator.

Our creators say

See what our creators think about working with us

Working with Questo has been a blast!I discovered so much about Rotterdam through the creation process that I suddenly felt like a tourist in my own city. Throughout the creative process, the Questo crew is always helpful, and simply pleasant to work with. From the start, I felt like being part of the team, which made me feel comfortable in reaching out whenever I ran into unexpected obstacles, as well as proposing “weird” or out-of-the-box story ideas. The crew definitely creates an atmosphere where writers can easily release their creative potential. — Dora, creator in Rotterdam, Hague and Delft
I love working with my Questo friends. I say friends because that's what they've become. They're a fabulous bunch of people to work with; really committed to doing great work and creating apps that bring joy. Which is even more important than ever right now. It's wonderful to read reviews and see how well our games have been received. — Lynda, two-time creator in Glasgow
Working with Questo has been a very rewarding experience for me. I loved the challenge of creating the quest as it helped deepen my appreciation for the city I live in, and I’m grateful for the opportunity. From the beginning, Questo has been very professional in their dealings with me, and this continues until today, more than a year after my quest’s launch. I really admire the company’s commitment to their product, and I look forward to collaborating with them again in the future. — Michelle, creator in Lyon
