It’s not often I see a digital project that’s done in partnership with a classical music organisation and I like it. Hide&Seek did The Show Must Go On with the Royal Opera House back in the day, and I know just how hard it is to square the open, participatory values of the digital space [...]
Hide&Seek is closing down in the New Year. Founding director Alex Fleetwood explains a little about why.
This year, Hide&Seek and Kensington Palace are creating Christmas at Kensington Palace: a Game of Crowns, an installation in the King’s State Apartments running throughout the Christmas period, inviting visitors to play through games inspired by that original 1699 party and by Christmas traditions of the period.
Come along to the Palace and choose your paper crown – then take part in the games and decorate your crown based on how you do!
Be kind. I have never written a blog post before. Production doesn’t often pipe up. But as first blog posts go, this one will probably introduce me, Sarah Butcher, Producer, quite well. I’m the one in the studio that overuses the word “strong”, receives Ryan Gosling spam from my colleagues and Instagrams way too much. [...]
Alex with the thinking behind launching first on Apple devices.
IndieCade East is back, again in New York’s Museum of the Moving Image (Feb 14-16), and the team invited me and my husband Kevin Cancienne to co-chair the conference. We are pretty thoroughly excited at the prospect of getting to shape some of the thinking behind the event. More exciting, though, is that this is the first time ever that IndieCade is opening up the conference to talk submissions.
You can have a Tiny Launch Party on our own or with friends, indoors or outdoors, wherever the fancy takes you. At some point today, just pick a moment and declare a party. Launch parties in the pub after lectures! Launch parties during a cigarette break at work! Launch parties at family dinner! Launch parties during ad breaks!

Last weekend saw Hide&Seek take over the Royal Court bar with Greed! The Gameshow, to celebrate the end of Dennis Kelly’s dark tale, The Ritual Slaughter of Gorge Mastromas.
A blog from Alex about how Tiny Games can help players get more active.
A transcript of a talk given by Founding Director Alex Fleetwood on a vision for a National Game Space, the history of other British public interventions into culture, and an analysis of the current situation.
It is with great sadness that we are saying goodbye to Development Director Mark Sorrell. Here he is, explaining his reasons in his own inimitable style… So I’ve decided to leave my position as Development Director here at Hide&Seek. What? Why would I even do that? Am I insane? Yes. In Sesame Street Family Play [...]
It’s with enormous pride, and an irrepressible sense of silliness, that we announce that Sesame Street Family Play – Powered By Tiny Games is now available on the App Store.
