Press Release – Award-winning technology company announces it’s platform
June 26, 2015, Vancouver, BC – QuestUpon, the award-winning technology company behind the viral Sasquatch sighting of 2013, announces the launch of its platform that introduces wide-ranging impacts across categories that include gaming, entertainment, marketing and advertising.
This announcement follows closely on the heels of QuestUpon winning the prestigious award for ‘Most Innovative Entertainment Company’ for BC, by DigiBC at the NextBC 2015 Awards event, held at Telus World of Science in Vancouver on May 21st, 2015.
“It’s been a very busy and rewarding time for us,” said Miles Marziani, CEO and Founder of QuestUpon. “The response that we have received, from both QuestUpon users as well as brands, has been phenomenal.”
QuestUpon provides a full range of uses to the mobile user, ultimately providing a new way to experience their surroundings with immersive and interactive media. The platform allows for a variety of quest types including urban races, guided tours, treasure hunts and games. The features include 3D augmented reality, time travel, geocaching, social gamification, and edutainment and trivia.
“This platform is remarkable, and one of the features I get excited about is sending an augmented reality item in a text message. But then I can take it a step further, and position that message at a certain location, so the friend I’m texting has to retrieve it by geocaching to the point on the map that I’ve placed the message,” said Tammy Meyers, COO and Co-Founder. “It’s an exciting innovation in text messaging, and just one of the many features in QuestUpon.”
QuestUpon, a Vancouver BC based company with satellite offices in Kelowna BC, is an edutainment gaming company that has created a platform for iOS and Android smartphones that combines 3D augmented reality and geocaching to gamify the world. The founders have a long history in mobile platform and game development with their associate company, PlayMobility. For more information please visit www.questupon.com
