Meet Leila

Leila is a little girl. She lives in an ordinary house, on an ordinary street, in an ordinary town.

But when an unexpected visitor arrives one night, her life becomes a little less ordinary.

About the game

Leila and the Little Folk is an adventure game, in which you play the part of Leila.

You move Leila around her world by tapping where you want her to go, and you can interact with the people and objects she encounters simply by pressing on them.

As she moves through the game, Leila will encounter problems and puzzles that it is up to you to solve.

The supporting cast

Leila is not alone in her world - there are many other characters which she will encounter. There's Mum, Dad and the fearsome librarian Miss Fenchurch, as well as the others that we couldn't possibly tell you about without spoiling the whole plot.

Leila will need to speak with all the people she meets to help her on her quest.

The soundtrack

The game now features a full musical soundtrack courtesy of MakeFire Music.


Here are some shots of the game in action, running on a tablet. The phone version looks much the same, but things are 'zoomed in' a little more to make sure you can see everything.
