Intrepid explorer, Hunter Fortune, had just returned from his latest expedition deep in the heart of the Honduran Jungle. He claimed to have discovered the legendary Lost City of the Monkey God - but last night, someone put a stop to his discoveries for good.
The world is in shock, the Geographer's Guild has declared a national day of mourning, the head of the Tropical Disease Unit is convinced the curse of the Monkey God is real - and despite the deadly discovery, no one seems even remotely upset. Something isn't right.
Grab your fedoras and assemble a top team of intrepid explorers as you race round Reading to unearth hidden evidence, crack cryptic clues and converse with characters - against the clock. Prepare for a killer expedition like no other as you face the curse of the jungle.
A Curse Of The Jungle is a timed murder mystery treasure
hunt that sends teams of intrepid detectives around the
streets of Reading, allowing players to discover hidden
secrets and crack the case in an intriguing new way.
You will need a smartphone to complete some clues.
