Dumbo Darkly is an extended reality tale that blends location-based AR and soundwalks to create a wicked walking tour like you’ve never seen before.

An homage to the twisted literary styles of Neil Gaiman and Stephen King—our app transports you into the spooky underbelly of DUMBO Brooklyn, where you’ll meet a plethora of ghosts and ghouls from local folklore and hear all about their untimely passings. Featuring an original story, an original score, and all original character art—take a step on the Darkly side, if you dare.

Smart and original

Wonderful app! The AR story and the soundwalk is amazing. And the characters are super detailed and spooky. Really good example of what a walking tour can be.


Just in time for Halloween

I’m an adult, but I still like to be spooked from time to time. This is the app for me.
