Publisher Versus Evil and developer Mad About Pandas have announced mystery adventure game Hitchiker for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, PC, Mac, Linux, and Apple Arcade. A release date was not announced.
Here is an overview of the game, via its official website:
A mystery game set along lost highways.
You’re a hitchhiker on a strange journey, unable to remember who you are or where you’re headed. Something in your recent past has stolen your memory— but what? The highway offers clues: a matchbook hidden in your armrest, a photo in the glovebox, billboards and crows along the roadside. Your driver, a farmer, wants to help you, and his personal memories and recollections provide an unexpected window into your own backstory.
So far, so good… until a chance slip-up exposes a pattern of deception, secret correspondences and cruel design. From there, the road is full of surprising turns that will challenge every assumption you’ve made along the way. To complete your journey, you’ll need to choose your friends wisely— never knowing if your worst enemy is your own subconscious mind. Hitchhiker is a game about memory, identity and loss, all along a highway where nothing is quite what it seems.
