Help cover Fringe losses and keep up the Edinburgh Treasure Hunt Project

1596049757_fullsizeoutput_1180.jpegI've always wanted to be part of the Edinburgh Fringe. With limited acting, singing and comedy talents,  I had to be extra creative to come up with something worthy.  I'm good at games though, so 4 years ago I decided to merge my knowledge of Edinburgh as a tour guide with my passion for games and I created a hybrid between a tour, an escape room and a treasure hunt. I called it "Sherlock's Secret Challenge". Would someone join? The first few days of the festival almost no one came and I thought "oh well, nice try"... but I was shocked at how it picked up and it was selling out by the end of the 2017 Fringe. It came back on 2018 and 2019. It also received great reviews that encouraged me to work on new things. This year it was the plan to release a new game "Fantastic Creatures of Edinburgh" for the 2020 Fringe. A game that explores the lore behind some of Edinburgh's mythical creatures.  


My goal is to create experiences that give people a chance to discover the stories on their own and engage with them actively. Games that follow a storyline that stems from the actual history of the city. 


This year with no Fringe its hard for any of us Fringe Makers to keep our creative projects going. Most of us work all year to prepare for the season. This is a passion project and it can't survive without an audience. If running around solving logic puzzles or questing for magical beasts, whilst learning some fun facts, sounds like your cup of tea, please consider supporting  Fringe Makers by getting a ticket to the Fringe Friday events. The Fringe is unique and wonderful, help it survive! You can also advance book our latest family treasure hunt "Fantastic Creatures of Edinburgh", redeemable any Saturday or Sunday from September and get our cute unicorn tote bag as a gift. 


I really want to thank the Fringe for giving us this platform. I'm very thankful for everyone involved in the Fringe: organisers, artists, venues and audience. It has changed my life personally and professionally and I can´t imagine not having it. Its simply the best! Keep safe, we all have a month long date next year ;)
