Relaxing walking game A Short Hike now has a 99-player multiplayer mode

One of the hidden gems of PC gaming in 2019, A Short Hike is a relaxing indie game about a bird walking/gliding/swimming around a nice large park in search of all sorts of neat, pretty things. A cool exploration and adventure game with puzzles to solve and collectibles to accumulate.

Yes, it sounds like a joke, but it’s not. It allows you to see what other players are doing around Eagle Peak. I guess it’s kind of like the Dark Souls thing: they’re like phantoms of different worlds. The state of the island is out of sync between players, so everyone’s screen is different for NPCs, items, etc. Only the players are the same.
