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.

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.
