Our examiner, Andy Robertson, first checked Hitchhiker 2 years ago. It was re-examined by Jo Robertson and updated 21 months ago.
Play involves you, as a hitchhiker with no memory or destination, catching a series of journeys across a strange landscape. It soon becomes apparent that someone close to you has disappeared. The people you join in the different ride range from stoic farmers to off-duty waitresses, and each one has a story to tell. Clues appear, alliances emerge, and nothing is quite what it seems.
What starts as a road trip adventure soon becomes a task of decoding the events of your past while confronting the dangers that lie ahead. The game offers a challenge not only in terms of puzzles and exploration but also how reliable our memories are and how we make sense of our lives.
This is a single story with one endpoint. There are branching dialogue options that will take you on different paths through the conversations and reveal different aspects of the characters you meet along the way.
