Filth Fair gets ready to dirty up the App Store this March

Nobody likes filth. It’s dirty, icky, and often downright disgusting. But the folks at Wellcome Trust? They’re celebrating it. Starting in March, the Wellcome Trust will spend more than five months showcasing the subject of filth in their upcoming “Dirt Season,” a series of special events and releases all revolving around our relationship with grime. One such release is the upcoming hidden object game Filth Fair for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch.

Developed by Toytek, Filth Fair might just offer the prettiest take on dirt that you might imagine. Rather than working with digitally-created images, Filth Fair will focus on a single painting created by world-renowned artist Mike Wilks. Hidden object fans might remember his work from the 1986 bestselling book The Ultimate Alphabet, or the last year’s iOS HOG of the same name.

This single image will contain more than 300 hidden words buried in objects, which the players will need to find. Like The Ultimate Alphabet, players will have the help of cryptic clues, descriptive clue, and word substitution.

Toytek is anticipating to have the game completed by this March, with an App Store release to follow soon after. Filth Fair will be available for free for all iOS devices. To learn more about Wellcome Trusts upcoming Dirt Season, visit dirtseason.org.
