Hitchhiker is an adventure game where the player catches a series of rides on the highway without knowing the answer to this most basic question : who am I, and where am I going? Each ride presents an existential puzzle that the player must solve to move on to the next car.

The game is available and published by Versus Evil since April 2021


Forever Forest is a unique blend of exploration, survival, action and role-playing, condensed into a simple and intuitive gameplay. Immerse yourself in beautiful colours and meditative melodies, while you explore a luscious, uncharted wilderness.

The game was released in 2019 on Nintendo Switch, published by Fictive Studio.
