Hidden Folks tasks you with exploring hand-drawn worlds to find particular people. It’s simple enough for youngsters to control but complex enough to keep parents and carers involved too.

As you tap and click around to search the area you can move objects, open windows and lift flaps. It takes care and attention to find each person but you have some help from a strip of targets shows you what to look for. You can also tap a target for a hint, and find enough to unlock the next area.

Our Hidden Folks Accessibility Report documents 28 accessibility features:
There are 3 options for interface size, which includes text, that range from very small to very large. The medium size offers decent readability and the font is very clear.

There are 3 color modes available; black on white, white on black, and black on a softer off-white color.

The interface with the clues can be moved to the bottom, left, or right side of the screen. The on-screen control map on the interface while using a controller can be toggled on and off.

It is not necessary to read to play this game because there are pictures that show what you are looking for and the seek-and-find gameplay is accessible for even very young children. However, there is text under each image that gives you a clue about where to look or something in the environment that might need to be clicked and changed in order to find the image, and without reading these clues the game is much harder. Many language options are available for this text.
