- a minimap for your nerdy life
Inspired by pressing start on any great video game, minimap attempts to replicate the "availible quests" experience for you irl.
After allowing minimap access to their current locations, users are dropped into their local environment with an assortment of quest markers scattered around them. These markers are generated by other users and by a meetup database of local nerdy events. Clicking on markers brings up the quick details for that quest, clicking that info window for more information will bring up a link to join that event.
