Take a Hike is a Multiplayer Story-game where up to 4 people will follow a journey, working together up to the point where they will start to backstab, betray and fight each other. The game is presented like classics as "Oregon Trail" or similar games. The Graphics are kept in an pure EGA style, animations are just 2/3 frames looped. People will play on a single computer, but control the game either using their mobile device or another computer like an "remote control". Players will start out on a shared journey, they will face grave dangers and enemies, and key to their survival will be to join forces and fight problems as a group. But behold, if they just would need to cooperatively make their way through the wilderness it would be pretty lame, wouldn't it? Each of the players really has their own agenda, which makes it necessary to eliminate the other and finish the game alone. So key to winning is, to group as long as it makes sense, and really loose the others at just the right moment to win the game.
