Denver, CO -- March 10th, 2022 -- Independent games publisher Versus Evil in partnership with award winning development studio Mad About Pandas today announced that the atmospheric first-person mystery game, Hitchhiker - A Mystery Game, is available now on Meta Quest 2 and Oculus Rift VR.

 
In Hitchhiker, players find themselves on a mysterious journey along a rural highway with no recollection of who they are or where they are going. Players piece together the clues of their own backstory by hitching rides across a mysterious and beautiful landscape. The drivers in Hitchhiker range from stoic farmers to off-duty waitresses, and each has a story to tell. Just remember that despite the quiet aesthetic, each dialogue holds a sinister undertow that builds suspense during the player's journey and nothing is exactly what it seems.


“We’re very excited to introduce Hitchhiker - A Mystery Game to a wider audience and therefore invite VR players on this surreal road-trip experience that touches on love, life, death and much more,” said Patrick Rau, Founder of Mad About Pandas.

Hitchhiker: A Mystery Game is the winner for Best Story at Game Connection and Gold Prize for Best Narrative at NYX.

Hitchhiker: A Mystery Game is also available to play on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and Apple Arcade
