Hitchhiker Tells a Satisfying Mystery on the Road – Review in 3 Minutes


Hitchhiker is a first-person mystery game developed by Mad About Pandas and published by Versus Evil. You play Copernicus, a young man who travels across the lost highways attempting to piece together his past. As a hitchhiker with no memory or destination in mind, you catch a series of rides from five total strangers who will challenge your grasp of reality and test whom you trust. Every conversation brings you closer to solving the mystery and revealing your deep dark secrets.

This is a spectacular mystery game that touches on love, life, death, and much more. This title offers a stellar experience with a powerful narrative, organic characters, and light environmental puzzling.
