Review: A Short Hike

July 29, 2019 1 min read

A Short Hike is a relaxed game about an adorable bird, going on a walk through the countryside, with the hopes of finding cell phone reception. It originally released as a part of the Humble Monthly program back in April, but it’s now finally seeing an official launch, and it’s packing some new content as well to celebrate the occasion.

This is one of those "palette-cleanser" games, which stand in stark contrast to the majority of what we’re used to. Over the course of the roughly two-hour playthrough, your time will almost entirely be spent exploring, while never being urged to push forward at anything other than your own pace. There are some extremely light puzzle elements, but most of the focus is on chilling out, meeting the locals, and having fun.
