Coupon Quest is an iOS/Android game where players can venture through a virtual realm on a quest to collect real coupons.
You love playing games. You love saving money. Do both with Coupon Quest.
You love playing video games and collecting cherries, coins, trophies, and other meaningless things. So why not play a game where you can collect stuff you can actually use in real life, like discounts and sweet deals from stores around you? Well soon you can.
Introducing Coupon Quest - the iOS/Android game that recognizes your present location, takes coupons of stores around your location, and hides them in the game for you to find.
And the perks don’t stop there. Every coupon you collect will earn you points inside the game. When you reach a milestone in points, we’ll reward you with a real prize that you can redeem, like a free coffee or a snack. No kidding.
So join us on our quest to make Coupon Quest. Together, we can fight the scourges of regularly priced goods and rejoice with sweet discounts, just from playing a video game.
TO BUSINESSES, APP DEVELOPERS, AND ONLINE STORES
Market your own website or app to mobile users on a platform where there's little competition for their attention. Current ads in mobile games are abrasive and interrupt the gaming experience. In Coupon Quest, the ads are integrated into the game itself, providing our casual gamers with a non-abrasive form of advertising that will benefit both the gamer and the advertiser. And keep in mind, Coupon Quest caters to a niche market of mobile gamers who are already in the mindset of consuming. So increase relevant mobile traffic to your website or app by placing your ad in Coupon Quest at an early-bird, Kickstarter rate! See our rewards to find a rate that's right for you. Rates start as low as $45.
About the game
In the game, you'll not only discover coupons to local stores, but you'll also meet magical, helpful characters and coupon-hungry dragons and trolls. The game will follow a story line, telling the tale of a kingdom being ravaged by the full priced goods of a greedy King, leaving the people of the kingdom poor and hungry. You, as a poor peasant, must venture through the land collecting "Coupon Stars" which act as power-ups in the game as well as real coupons to local stores around you. When you collect enough Coupon Stars, you can level up to more powerful avatars, like a knight, crusader, and more! Once you’ve reached Coupon King status, you can free the kingdom from the greedy king!
So at the start of the game, you’ll be placed on a landing square. This square will prompt you to swipe up, down, left or right to visit squares around you. Keep swiping, and you’ll find yourself navigating through a large grid of squares, which we like to call “the treasure map”.
While navigating through the treasure map, you’ll encounter 4 different types of squares:
1) Friend Squares with magical and helpful creatures guiding you through the story line and giving you clues on how to earn achievements.
2) Troll Squares which threaten to take away your experience points.
3) Ad Squares that will display information on a local store near you as well as online stores and big name brands. The Ad Square will act as a direct link to the store/brand's website.
4) And finally, Coupon Squares that look like ads, but will display a shiny star. When you tap the star, the square will magically flip around to reveal a coupon. Coupons in the game will offer up to 90% off products and services from brands in your area. Coupon Quest the company is currently discussing affiliate programs with coupon sources in Canada and the US.
Collect coupons and earn points!
We know that finding and collecting coupons in your area is already fun enough, but we’ve added some challenges to make things a little more interesting. Inside the game you’ll find special quests, like finding 5 restaurant deals in a row. Or finding a coupon that’s 90% off. The more quests you complete, the more points you earn, and the deeper you get in the storyline.
Collect points to win additional FREE stuff!
Once you reach a milestone in points, you’ll receive a non-abrasive drop down window offering a free prize, like a free coffee or snack from a store near you. Coupon Quest is currently discussing prize giveaway programs with brands across Canada and the US.
Move up the ranks from poor peasant to Coupon King!
Coupon Quest will keep a record of all your achievements and completed quests. You start the game as a poor peasant, but once you receive a milestone in achievements, you’ll unlock your Knight character! Move up the ranks from Knight, to Wizard, to Coupon Crusader, and more!
Why we need your support
Coupon Quest is an ambitious project, unlike your typical mobile game. Making a game this epic takes a lot of time and sweat, and we still have many hours or work ahead of us. We want Coupon Quest to be the best game it can possibly be, and that’s where your support will be extremely valuable to help pay for music, sound effects, testing, and additional platform development like Android. Your support will also help us promote and market to help fund future expansions like possible sequels and localizing the game to other regions like Europe and Asia. But most of all, your support will help us give you better kick-ass rewards!
T-shirts will come in a range of sizes, and in both men and women's cuts.
