Lift Youth Hub Visits clueQuest

By Freya Carroll

During December we raised money for Lift, a youth hub based in Islington that provides vital services for young people. We filled a giant advent calendar with goodies and locked each door with a padlock - just £3 would give you the key to open a door and discover what was inside. We managed to raise an astonishing £1000 for Lift, and bought them many items from their wishlist! This culminated in Lift coming to play a game here at clueQuest and finding all their gifts in the final room! 

Our Intrepid Reporter also sat down with Judith, the Senior Youth Manager at Lift, to chat about the good that Lift does for the community.

clueQuest is made up of many people, from the Gamesmakers who run our missions, to the visiting agents who come to save the world. One pair who keep clueQuest running smoothly is our customer service team, Jonnie and Ophelie. Our Intrepid Reporter sat down with them to discover who exactly it is on the other side of the phone...

Falling Star is rising again!

By Andy Tucker

Falling Star is back with an updated online game system for a great puzzle experience. We’re very proud of this new incarnation - it has some fiendishly fun puzzles, and it’s one of the best looking games we’ve ever made. A lot of sweat and tears has gone into this (thankfully not much blood) and we really hope that many more of you will get to enjoy it now.

Well, we can’t tell you where your child’s pencil case has ended up, but we can give you some suggestions for making this September one to remember.

It takes a top team to save the world, and we here at clueQuest are very lucky to have our Gamesmakers!
