What we do


We use game design principles to engage people in a shared activity, introduce them at a pace that suits them, and maintain ongoing engagement in activities that interest them.


We design systems that inform people of their progress toward personal goals in ways that motivate and encourage.


By promoting shared goals and rewarding constructive behaviours we encourage and inspire people to engage in the ongoing improvement of their environment.

City+ is an app to connect users to the people, places and things within their city. Acting as a window into the invisible, internet-connected world around us, City+ delivers the information we want, when and where we want it.

For organisations, City+ offers a way to connect with users on a platform designed to encourage engagement and promote joint endeavour.

For users, City+ offers a voice and a means of expression via an app that puts user safety and privacy first.
