Hidden Fields


Mundaun, a lovingly hand-penciled horror tale, is the first full-length title from Hidden Fields, a one-man studio founded by Swiss programmer and illustrator Michel Ziegler. Every character, scene and even environmental textures in the game are hand-penciled. Inspired by the dark, mythical folklore of the Swiss Alps, Ziegler sketches out the story of a young man who travels to Mundaun to face off with the malevolent entity that resides there and uncover the mystery of his grandfather's death. Throughout their journey across Mundaun, players will solve intricate puzzles to uncover the town's secrets, while avoiding sinister characters that trigger the game's fear system, a "cause-and-effect" feature which disorients players when facing dangerous situations.
