  • This was the original “Click-and-Play” Hidden Pictures on our website. Using Flash, sound effects, simple animation.
  • This is a more recent update, both in Flash and HTML5. We’re able to use the same “game engine” and illustrations on our website and in our apps.
  • Hidden Pictures Countdown, which we developed with Discovery Bay Games, creates a new kind of social Hidden Pictures experience. The key to understanding the experiences is to look not just at what’s on the screen but also at what’s happening around it. Are the kids, friends and family engaging with each other at least as much as they’re engaging with the screen?
  • Hidden Pictures app. Play screen and puzzle pack screen. Introduces another kind of social Hidden Pictures experience using GameCenter: achievements, leaderboards, and challenges.
  • Child looking in mailbox. Illustrates the moment of getting a new (or the first) issue of a magazine.
  • The game of Hopscotch is timeless.
  • You can play alone.
  • It’s international.
  • But mostly it brings people together.
  • With Hopscotch we wanted to draw on some of what's great about the magazine experience, such as an editorially driven experience and personalization. That's the push side of the push-pull model. But we didn't want to ignore the rich opportunities presented by the new medium, so we wanted to let kids and their parents pull in additional content based on their preferences.
