About Forbidden Corner Quest

The Forbidden Corner Quest app was developed by Flo-culture, an audience engagement and software development company. We support organisations by delivering new location-based storytelling experiences and immersive mobile apps. During this project, all app design, coding, and 3D modeling were completed by in-house. The app content was based on The Forbidden Corner’s characters and branding.

A DCMS grant partly funded the project through the UK5G testbed and trials group Mobile Access North Yorkshire. Additionally, the testbed and trials program will also bring a digital boost to the tourism sector. Obviously, this sector is a cornerstone of the Yorkshire Dales’ economy and the region’s wider £9bn visitor industry.

Digital Infrastructure Minister Julia Lopez said this app is a key part of the plan to put rural Yorkshire in the “digital fast-lane”. Furthermore, lopez said there is a priority to “level up” rural areas’ connectivity.

In summary, “The benefits are huge,” she said. “Local tourist attractions have been brought into the 21st century using the latest technology.”
