Sylvain Tegroeg – Hidden folks

Hidden Folks is a simple game of intricate complexity.The bridge that spans this paradoxical gap is an abundance of captivating, bustling, cartoon humanity that visually distracts and refocuses the player in a constant sequence. Creators Adriaan De Jongh and Sylvain Tegroeg have mentioned the visual similarity between Hidden Folks and Martin Handford’s ubiquitous Where’s Waldo series of books, but from a wider historical perspective Hidden Folks could be read as a contemporary video game distillation of the collective portraits of Pieter Bruegel the Elder’s or the overwhelming tableaux vivants of Hieronymus Bosch.
