safehouse is a head-to-head Street View game drawing inspiration from GeoGuessr and Pursued. It will be available to play in a web browser on our website, http://thesafe.house. The game aims to let players discover new places in the world in a uniquely competitive way. At the start of each match, players will find themselves in a random Street View location in an unknown area, pitted against each other with one of two tasks: the pursued must locate a safe house somewhere in the city, and the pursuer must catch the pursued. Each player will have to rely on quick wits, attention to detail, and a good sense of direction in order to succeed.
