Mind Candy is an interactive entertainment company that specialises in puzzles and Alternate Reality Games (ARGs). Our work includes everything from traditional Sudoku-style puzzles to pioneering cross-media projects in the rapidly expanding field of ARGs.

Our first project is a groundbreaking puzzle-based ARG called Perplex City - a global treasure hunt played simultaneously by tens of thousands of people around the world.

"[Perplex City], the puzzle game that is gearing up to become the interactive phenomenon of the year."
- The Guardian

"[Perplex City is] a game which uses the Internet, the media, phone messages and the very workings of your soul in its bizarre cleverness."
- PC Zone

"Tens of thousands of people across the world are taking part in what could be the biggest treasure hunt in history: a part-real, part-virtual game which will lead one of them to an object buried somewhere on the planet."
- The Observer
