You know what – you’re wrong about hidden object games. Sure, there’s an awful lot of crappy ones, and sure, people who don’t like hardcore turn-based strategy are happy to play them, but stop judging. They’re calming fun, and the best of the bunch are the Mystery P.I. series, made by SpinTop Games. There’s a new one out (which is a bit like saying, “There’s a Tuesday this week”) called Stolen In San Francisco, and you can download a demo from here. And then you’ll want to play it for more than the allowed hour, and then you’ll realise I was right. So there. I recommend putting on a favourite podcast in the background as you play, and then just relaxing – no one’s looking, no one is right to judge.
