Hidden Folks — can be found on iOS, Steam, and Apple TV — is best described as an interactive Where’s Waldo? but for grown-ups. The premise is the same as those classic children’s books: you’re presented with a complex scene, and the goal is to find specific people or objects within it. And like Where’s Waldo? it can be incredibly challenging. Trying to pick out a particular person in a sea of lookalikes often takes time and careful concentration
Hidden Folks also means that you’re doing more than just staring at a screen. The game encourages experimentation, coaxing you into exploring its scenes with your fingertip (or mouse) as well as your eyes. In order to find certain characters you’ll need to cut down grass or open a garage door.
