A Short Hike reviews and comments

Stunning hiking simulator that shows how having a small-scale and focused concept leads to great results.
«Sit back and relax»
This is just a perfect blend of all elements . the game just flows and that is exceptional about it. the sound track is just good and  in the background. the dialog is fun and suits well. everything is well made.
Its  just a great game. among the best i played .
«Blew my mind»
«OST on repeat»
for a game that you could complete in less that 20 minutes, you can actually spend hours playing A Short Hike.

there's a lot of fun little side quests to complete, characters to meet, and golden feathers to collect! 

the music and graphics are great, and overall I highly recommend this game. however, I feel like the flying mechanic was kind of weak and not really fun to use because the camera was kinda awkward.
