Get Completely Lost With GeoGuessr

May 13, 2013 | Kyle Chayka

Do you feel like going for a stroll somewhere mysterious and different, perhaps checking out the local flora and fauna, but you’re not in the mood to actually go outside?

Lucky for you there’s GeoGuessr, a game that randomly chooses a location and plops you into it using Google Streetview. You have to guess where you are and the game awards you points based on your accuracy.

The game forces you to look closely at your surroundings — streets, signage languages, misc scenery — making the player feel like an explorer of sorts. Or an amnesiac. Fun.

Okay, so maybe I was a little bit off on my first guess.
