Adorable “Where’s Wally” like game Hidden Folks is out today


Search for hidden folks in hand-drawn, interactive, miniature landscapes. Unfurl tent flaps, cut through bushes, slam doors, and poke some crocodiles! A strip of targets shows you what to look for. Tap a target for a hint, and find enough to unlock the next area.

Everything in Hidden Folks is draw by hand, scanned in, placed, layered manually, animated, and scripted. All sounds you’ll hear originate from the developers’ mouths. There are no time limits, no points, just areas with a bunch of folks and objects to be found.

Do you want to play possibly the most adorable iOS game that doesn’t make you look like a crazy cat lady?! Hidden Folks is what you’re after.

I’m not a huge iOS gaming guy but this little indie title is just plain and simple fun. Imagine your “Where’s Wally” book come to life and each tap of a finger exhumes animation and sound.

Everyone seems to be lauding how their kids are enjoying it so far but fuck that, I’m not ashamed to say it’s the most fun I’ve had on my iPhone since the frustratingly addiction that is Super Mario Run.

Hidden Folks is on the App Store for A$5.99 and is also available for Mac & Windows on Steam.
