Geolocation game helps users get familiar with a new town

St. Louis startup Dimensions has developed an app designed to help acclimate those who are new to a city. The interactive game offers both prepackaged and custom “geolocation experiences,” with things like scavenger hunts and gatherings that will help newcomers, as well as existing residents, engage with their community. By introducing users to locally owned businesses and neighborhood culture, Dimensions aims to help grow and support disinvested communities.

The startup says it plans to add four cities each year over the next four years, and each year should increase the market by 42 million users. Soon to be in public beta, the app is set to launch in 2021.
