Puzzle makers have become more adventurous and creative since the first jigsaw puzzle was created in 1762. Intricate shapes, challenging cut patterns, whimsy pieces – all these are techniques that make the puzzling experience even more enjoyable and fun.
The jigsaw puzzle went through rapid growth with technological advancement. And now Enjoy the Wood with its Quatro city is bringing this traditional pastime activity to a whole new level by combining it with an online quest.
Quatro city is a brand-new type of wooden puzzle that combines a jigsaw puzzle, an interactive story-telling quest, and a detective twist. So the fun doesn’t end after reassembling the picture, there is still a mind-blowing online quest that you have to solve.
The idea belongs to a Ukrainian family that started its family business, Enjoy the Wood in 2014. Their first products were the Wooden World Map and World’s first 3D Wooden World Map, which became a huge success. Since then they have grown from just a small idea to a big production. They also expanded their product range by introducing no ordinary jigsaw puzzles with a unique design for each puzzle piece. And with Quatro city, they’ve gone even further, they’ve added gripping quests for you to unravel when you’re done with the puzzle.
Is this a truly new product that you can’t find on the market? Or this is a product that defines an entirely new product category. In some cases, combining several features into one or introducing a new feature to an old product is also considered an innovation.
With the introduction of high-quality and accurate lasers, random-cut jigsaw puzzles became more and more popular. The irregular and unique pieces make puzzling more dynamic and challenging, but Quatro city also adds interaction and mystery to it. So you’re not only assembling a picture but also solving quizzes and riddles. Now let’s discuss what Quatro city is and what its objective is.
The puzzle is divided into 4 parts containing up to 500 pieces. And each part is an independent story, a chapter with 7-9 quests. The game evolves in an engaging story-telling way. It allows you not only to watch the events unfold but also to participate and appear as a character.
The game starts with putting together the pieces and assembling the 4 parts of the puzzle one by one. Each part is in a different envelope, so you’ll find 4 envelopes in the box. Those who love a real challenge can mix the contents of all the envelopes and make the puzzle even more difficult. The Quatro city comes with a magnifying glass and a vacuum pen to help you catch even the smallest details of the city parts.
After completing the picture and having thoroughly examined the numerous streets of Quatro City you’re ready for the next step, where the interaction with the game continues on your device.
To make this puzzle quest even more engaging, the creators have included some characters, whom you’ll meet in the course of solving the quests. One of those characters is a detective, whom you’re going to help to unravel the mysteries hidden in the Quatro city.
Inside the box, with the 4 envelopes and detective tools, you’ll find his business card with a QR code. By scanning it you will fully immerse yourself in the atmosphere of the town to start the investigation.
On the website, you’ll find interesting stories and about 30 quests to solve. Quatro city is fraught with lots of plot twists and surprises, so rest assured that you’re going to enjoy the entertaining investigation.
