Since I have yet to dive into any Hidden Folks gaming. I have to mention that I overlooked the hand-drawn, #hiddenobject, interactive, miniature landscapes. So while the release took place back on Steam in February #2017 for Linux, Mac and Windows PC’s #gaming. The games ratings are well within perspective. Since players have to unfurl tent flaps, cut through bushes, slam doors, and poke some crocodiles. Using a strip of targets showing the player what to look for. Which means you can even tap a target for a hint. And find enough to unlock the next gaming area.
Hidden Folks Features:
- 17+ hand-drawn areas
- 155+ targets to find
- 1100+ mouth-originated sound effects
- 250+ unique interactions
- 3 color modes: normal, sepia, and night mode
- 1 Steam Cloud
- 5 Achievements
- 8 Steam Trading Cards
- 22 languages (translated by the community)
So the reason for this news post is to announce the Factory Update. Which is available right now via Steam. Since this update comes with 3 new areas. One small area to get the hang of the new theme, one MASSIVE area – the Factory itself. While one puzzle area finishes the game.
Therefore there are 19,475 sprites, 3400 interactive objects, 921 characters, 540 sounds, and 28 targets. Hence the Factory is by far the most complicated area the dev team have ever made. Since you might have caught the making-of posts of the Factory. Available in the Steam product updates, and takes place over the past few days.
Hidden Folks Factor Update:
- 8 new languages: Arabic, Swedish, Norwegian, Danish, Finnish, Czech, Ukrainian, and Vietnamese.
- Many small iterations to targets and clues of previous areas.
- Improved a lot of the sound mixing throughout the game.
- Massive performance optimisations!
… and more! Check out the changelog on the forums.
