Game studio Hide & Seek worked with Mark Harris and other collaborators to create this game.
Hide&Seek started life in 2007 as a festival of social games and playful experiences on Londons South Bank. Our aim was to create an environment where anyone who wanted to could experiment with making games, and where adults were invited to play together in public. The festival was transformative for us, our first experience of creating public play, and feedback from players was amazing; and so the studio was born.
In the last five years, weve worked with a wildly diverse range of clients and partners. Weve made an iOS arcade game for the Royal Opera House, consulted on gamification for clients such as eBay, Cadbury and the BBC, produced transmedia projects for Warner Bros., Wieden & Kennedy and Film4, and made our own games like the Boardgame Remix Kit, Drunk Dungeon and Searchlight.
