A social game with hidden digital messages in space and time

A mobile app for online users which allows the user to send a message to a friend, while locking it to a particular space and/or point in time in order to have fun through custom-made games, puzzles and challenges. Users benefit by fun and engagement interactions when the user wants to entertain and challenge a friend.
How about a service enabling anchoring messages in space and time? Then notify the recipients to go discover them?

A user in a particular location (certain radius and/or in a named location) leaves a message to a friend or a group of friends. The message is only available if the recipient gets to the specific place, within the predefined time frame. The message can be a combination of voice/video/text/image or another form of rich media. The recipient might get a notification on this message or not (surprise mode).

This could become a great platform for games and new interaction scenarios. In a small geo-scale, this sets the basis for games, personal messages and friends having fun with posting location-triggered messages.

In a large geo-scale, users lock their messages in places around the world. If and when the targeted users visit the same place, they discover the (potentially old) messages.

It could also involve public messages — enabling a ‘happened here’ summation.
