Hike, climb, and soar through the peaceful mountainside landscapes of Hawk Peak Provincial Park. Follow the marked trails or explore the backcountry as you make your way to the summit. Along the way, meet other hikers, discover hidden treasures, and take in the world around you.

A Short Hike is a delightful indie game that is both relaxing and charming. The game follows the journey of a young bird named Claire, who is spending the day at a state park. Claire’s goal is to reach the summit of a mountain so she can make a very important phone call, but the journey is filled with obstacles and unexpected surprises.

One of the best things about A Short Hike is the sense of freedom it gives the player. There are no time limits or strict objectives, so you are free to explore the park at your own pace. The game is also filled with charming characters that you can interact with and help along the way.

The graphics and art style of A Short Hike are simple but beautiful, with bright colours and a playful, cartoonish design. The soundtrack is also wonderful, with calming, atmospheric music that perfectly complements the peaceful vibe of the game.

Overall, A Short Hike is a lovely and engaging indie game that is perfect for those looking for a relaxing and enjoyable experience. Whether you’re a seasoned gamer or just looking for a break from the stresses of everyday life, A Short Hike is definitely worth playing.

All video games are purchased by myself or gifted from a friend.
