Publisher Versus Evil and developer Mad About Pandas have announced an April 15, 2021 release date for mystery game Hitchhiker on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam. It’s a painfully familiar sort of mystery too: You’re an amnesiac trying to figure out what your deal is, albeit while in the midst of hitchhiking. However, you’re also tracking the disappearance of someone close to you, (I’m not sure how you know/remember that.) and clues will start to come together as you ultimately hitch a ride with five different people across attractive landscapes.
This unique Hitchhiker game will include the following features in summary:
- Hitchhike across a strange and beautiful landscape in five rides with five total strangers who will challenge your grasp on reality… And maybe your philosophy on life.
- Solve environmental puzzles, and keep an eye out for clues, in order to uncover your mysterious past.
- The choices you make when speaking with the drivers will reveal your own dark secrets.
The Hitchhiker game trailer is equal parts serene and eerie, as befits a mystery set in such a comfortable setting. Mad About Pandas might have found a pretty unique angle in which to craft its game. There are only a few days to go until you can unravel the Hitchhiker mystery on Nintendo Switch.
