Description

Hidden Fields is a game studio founded by programmer and illustrator Michel Ziegler located in idyllic Lucerne, Switzerland. We are the makers of Mundaun: A lovingly hand-pencilled horror tale.

History

The Philosophy

The aim of Hidden Fields is to create game worlds that are truly unique in aesthetics and content for players to explore. We try to bring a hand-made and imperfect sensibility to the world of games, which is mostly dominated by slick visuals. Currently we do that by combining hand-drawn textures with 3D models. Hidden Fields collaborates with other artists, designers and musicians over the course of development.

The story so far

While Mundaun is the first project of Hidden Fields slated for release, we honed our craft on numerous smaller, unreleased games before. They include ELSE, a 2D side-scrolling title that is rendered in stark black-and-white contrasts and The Colony, a first-person sci-fi adventure game that features textures created with an analogue printing-method called risography. Please see videos of those earlier projects below.
