Hidden Folks

Entrant 2017

Adriaan de Jongh & Sylvain Tegroeg


Hidden Folks is a game like Where's Waldo?, but black and white and interactive: find little people hiding behind or inside things by lifting doors, pressing buttons, and shaking trees.

All characters and objects in the game are hand-drawn, scanned in, placed in levels in the game, layered manually, and then animated. All sounds in the game are mouth sounds, because why not. It's supposed to be a relaxing game; no time limits, no points, just a bunch of folks and objects to be found. The game will feature around 20-30 levels with various themes like a camping theme, a desert, a factory, a suburb, and many more. Expect updates with more levels.
