Editors’ Notes

There’s a shaman hiding in a secret passage, a monkey napping somewhere in the trees, and a tiny reptile laughing near some butterflies. How are we supposed to find them all?! We like being thorough in our searches, but we’ll admit we occasionally just tap all over the place. However you decide to play, the adorable visuals will keep you charmed.

ADDICTIVE, in a good way!🐼🤍

I have two different pain disorders...peripheral neuropathy and failed back surgery syndrome (it’s really a thing...crazy as it sounds!), and I try everything to avoid pain medications. So, distracting myself from the pain with things that stimulate my brain in some way works some nights. For some reason reading or meditating just doesn’t do the trick. But, I’ve been playing Hidden Folks for a year maybe and sadly finished it completely tonight. I always made a point to find everything, it would drive me mad the first few rounds when I left a couple I went back and found them and from then on I never left an area without finding every little thing.

Thank you so much for this game, I think I will see if I can figure out how to, restart it maybe ... hopefully by the time I finish it again you’ll have some new areas?? I am sure I’m not the only one who has used this for health benefits. And I know that sounds crazy, but it has helped me so much. I hate pain meds, I hate the way they make me feel...from nauseated to mentally numb. But, with chronic pain, sometimes there isn’t much you can do but meds or get creative. This game and one other has more than cut my meds in half. (Plus, a few card games and mahjong work some.)

So just know your efforts in this game are much appreciated. And they aren’t just for fun and games...some people really need this game to get through the night sometimes. 🤍💆🏻‍♀️

Refreshing take on hidden object puzzles!

This is definitely challenging but still so enjoyable to play!

Love the added element of interactivity to open doors, dig in snow piles, pressing buttons and shifting objects in order to unearth & find the object you are looking for. I enjoy just opening & tapping on things just to discover what all can be manipulated.

The clues, scenes & sounds are so creative, clever & humorous.

One thing I feel that would totally sky rocket this game to the another level and that I would absolutely LOVE to see would be the ability for players to create their own custom list of hidden objects (with customized clues) to find and then challenge other players to find them. The custom challenges could be made by forwarding to friends or by being accessed by anyone on a server. Those custom challenges could even be rated by other players. Filters & ability for players to flag could be used to ensure inappropriate language is not used in the clues. I think this would vastly increase the exposure, playability & revenue for this game. Revenue could be a 1 time fee to unlock the feature, or monetize by playing an ad in order to be able to play a new custom challenge.

There is just so much interesting objects & folks to look at & explore and I often find myself thinking “that object should so be on the list”

Thank you for creating such an awesome and refreshing unique game! Was thrilled to find there was an update with added content!
