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.
Best Art Direction Illustrated and put together by Sylvain Tegroeg, everything in Hidden Folks is draw by hand, scanned in, placed, layered manually, animated, and scripted. The game stays entirely true to Sylvain's art style, black and white with a strange orthographic perspective, which is uncommon for games. As static images, Sylvain's world already lives and breathes, but being put into a game and having interactivity added to his illustrations, the stories in his world truly come to life.

Best Game Design Two-and-a-half years of extensively playtesting Hidden Folks lead to finding many unobtrusive, barely noticeable design tricks, from the little wiggle that happens when you tap on something that you're supposed to drag, to the 14 different kinds of clues we carefully constructed, or from the level design to teach people about the game's interactions, to the multi-platform interface supporting touch, mouse and keyboard, and the Apple TV remote.
