    Hello,

    I am working with my girlfriend on this hidden object game from the world of animals. I am doing the code (which is quite easy) and she is doing the illustrations and animations. She is doing it as schoolwork and it should be finished around June 2017.
    We have now first two locations ready and if anyone is interested in testing over testflight, let me know.
    We want to add more locations, each with a different color palette, as you can see. It should be the kind of nice relaxing game.

    Not a strategy game, but then I am even more interested in your opinion :)
    Testflight sent.

    Played it for about 15 minutes, it's truly beautiful! But it's really really hard to find those things, too hard to my point of view, I ended up pressing everywhere a bit randomly, I think you should make those food slightly easier (brighter or darker) to find. Otherwise it's pure beauty.

    One more thing, when we find an object, I think you could make the bubble with the number founded and unfounded appear so that we don't have to go back to see how many more left to
    Find. Also, swiping to move the screen to the nex area would be better.

    Thanks for your feedback.

    - We are working on more locations. Currently on sea level. I will post some progress soon.
    - Instead of easier levels I am thinking of some help/hint system. Something like was in Tiny Bang Story.
    - Bubble with found items number - I don't know, I like the idea, that you need to go back to see. In Samorost 3 you also need to go from one end of the planet to another to just see something. But this can be changed in future, we will see. Some people told us this, but I am not sure if it is really needed.
    - Music and sounds - we even didn't start work on that. But there will be something :)
    - Menu - there will be probably some map or world plan where you will have the location selection. And as you will progress in the locations, the world plan will change according to your progress. We are still thinking of it how exactly this will work.
    - Swiping - you are true, I started working on this feature. I also want to add a pinch to zoom for iPhone (not needed on iPad).

    Any ideas about the game name? :) Hidden Animals sounds too boring for me :)

    Sneak peak of a new sea location.
    We started with the version on the left, but we realized, that to keep it in line with other locations, we need to change it to the right version with fewer colors.

    What about a night map with fireflies? Would look so awesome! Or a pond with carps and gold fish.

    New testflight version is out.
    I've added swiping for moving between screens and you can also double-tap to zoom in/out.
    What do you think?
