The interactive hidden object landscapes of Hidden Folks will soon be headed to Nintendo Switch, it has been confirmed, with the game arriving on the eShop next week.
Previously released on Steam, iOS, and Android, and actually taking home the Game of the Year 2017 award from the App Store, Hidden Folks has you, rather literally, searching around for some hidden folks. A strip of targets shows you what to look for - and you can tap one of these targets for a hint - and if you manage to find enough folks, you'll be able to unlock the next area.
Everything in Hidden Folks is "drawn by hand, scanned in, placed, layered manually, animated, and scripted". As you can tell from the trailer above, all sounds in the game are mouth-made, too, with the developers creating the entire soundtrack from a collection of weird and wonderful noises. Developer, Adriaan de Jongh, tells us that the game "plays equally well, if not better", on Nintendo Switch than previous platforms.
- 25+ hand-drawn areas
- 250+ targets to find
- 1600+ mouth-originated sound effects
- 400+ unique interactions
- 3 colour modes: normal, sepia, and night mode
The game will be playable in all TV, handheld, and tabletop modes, and all previous content will be included when the game launches on 31st October. You'll be able to grab a copy for $14.99 / €14,99 (with a 20% launch discount also available).
