'CluedUpp': VR murder mystery game in Rochester

May 14, 2019 03:13 PM

ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — A city-wide mystery game, almost like a real-life version of the board game Clue, is scheduled to place in Rochester this summer.

CluedUpp promises people to send them on an outdoor version of a Clue, finding evidence, questioning witnesses and eliminating suspects – all from an app on your phone.


It's set to take place on Aug. 24 with Central Rochester listed as the location. The start time is between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m., but participants must finish before 5 p.m.

Online reviewers have pointed out minor location flaws in past events, questioning if the person in charge of setting up the game is familiar with the local landscape. The company is located in the U.K. where the virtual reality driven game started. Dozens of events are now scheduled for U.S. cities.

News10NBC reached out to the company but still haven't gotten any response. We also reached out to a city spokesperson who says the city is aware of the event but has no part in the planning.

The whole premise is a self-guided app to take you through a walking tour of the city to collect virtual clues to solve a murder mystery.

It does cost money to play and prizes are promised, but there's no information on what those prizes will include.
