A Short Hike originally released as an original indie game for a Humble Monthly a few months ago, now expanded and re-released with A Short Hike: The Extra Mile.

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.

This newly updated and released game adds in Linux support as part of an expanded game overall. The developer said a bunch of ideas couldn't quite fit into the original release, so here we are. It includes new characters to meet, fishing, a better water shader, a new accessibility feature to change the pixel scaling and so on.

Feature Highlight:

  • Explore the island any way you like. Choose your own path to follow and see where it leads you. You never know what you might stumble into!
  • Hike at your own pace — there’s no need to rush to the summit! Take your time fishing along the river banks or swimming by the lakeshore.
  • Collect hidden treasures to reach new heights. Try taking a dive off the mountain peaks to soar above the forests.
  • Chat with the other hikers you meet along your route. You might be able to help each other out!
  • Listen to a lush original soundtrack by Mark Sparling that progresses dynamically as you explore the wilderness.

You can find A Short Hike: The Extra Mile on Steam and itch.io. Seems like a really sweet experience if you're after something a little more chilled-out.

For anyone who got it in the Humble Monthly bundle: you can go back and get your Steam key for it now.

I played this for a couple of hours yesterday on Itch.io and Steam (buying it on the former gives you a key to the latter), and found it wonderful. Lots of fun exploration and fetch quests, and the height building and unlocking of "jump pads" reminded me a little of Grow Home, which I also adored.
