Baltimore, MD — April 9th, 2021.
The independent video games publisher Versus Evil and the multi-award-winning indie games developer Mad About Pandas, today announced with great joy and excitement that their atmospheric first-person mystery game “Hitchhiker” is coming to PC (via Steam), PS4, Xbox One, and the Nintendo Switch on April 15th, 2021 (“Hitchhiker” was launched on Apple Arcade back in March, 2021).
In “Hitchhiker”, players find themselves on a mysterious journey along a dusty highway with no recollection of who they are or where they are going. Players piece together their memories by catching rides with strangers across the country who provide clues to your character’s past and solutions to various environmental puzzles.
The narrative-driven interactive gameplay revolves around five distinct Hitch-hiked rides players take trying to recover lost memories through dialogue with an eclectic mix of drivers, each with their own quirky character traits.
