Nominated for an Innovation in Game Award at Ludicious, the Hitchhiker First Ride prototype will be published as a Humble Original in the January 2018 Monthly Bundle.
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.
The Hitchhiker prototype introduces the first in a series of rides with different drivers that explore various themes in the subconscious mind. The First Ride prototype will be released as a Humble Original in 2018, with further rides to follow in the near future.
The First Ride prototype has been nominated for Innovation in Game at the Ludicious Zürich Game Festival, January 18-21, 2018.

Whenever you set on a trip across the United States, or any country in fact, more often than not you’ll encounter a person or two standing at the side of the highway, waving for you to stop and give them a ride.
