Review: A short Hike
(Transcribed from my personal Twitter: @Heisengerm)
A Short Hike: a cute game in which you play as a little bird on a mission to hike up a mountain. There's not much else to say, but that's not a bad thing. You can walk, climb, and glide around and there certain items you can find to help you out. The mountain / island is absolutely packed with NPCs that you can help out and talk to, secret treasure, and little secrets. None of these are mandatory, you can do whatever you want.
I feel like this game really shows the potential of video games. It truly is a nice little experience that is completely player dictated. You can do whatever you want, and even if you get lost, you only have to go up to get back on track. Exploration is greatly rewarded.
