About Me:

Sorry, but I haven't yet shared the information about myself that would typically display here. Check back later to see if that changes, or if I instead choose to remain an enigma.

It's here!

In the end, it came. On August 11th 2021 with the lengthy standard-issue delay one hopes to be a warrant of quality came it did, on a file of no less than 113 MB.

I have played through circa 10% of the game, maybe 5% would be more precise.
Early impressions are, it's less complicated to hit a single home run than two in a row... but I look forward for the game to change my mind*.

Hidden games, and folks.
June 18, 2017

Hidden Folks is a rather... hidden game that came to my attention lately.

If you have an interest in the Where's Wally?/Where's Waldo? books, you probably know that all related videogames, licensed and not, have lacked lustre.

Hidden Folks changes that with a deluge of creativity and detail, covering every aspect of the game, from the witty and nuanced writing to sound (there are only sound effects, and they entertain better than could have any music track) and graphics.

It is a showcase of game design excellence and very tasty to play through, to the measure that the player be a youth, or a grown-up whose conscious is still in contact with his or her own inner kid.
