Independent games publisher Versus Evil in partnership with multi award-winning development studio Mad About Pandas today announced that the atmospheric first-person mystery game, Hitchhiker - A Mystery Game, is arriving on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC on April 15th. The game was launched on Apple Arcade last month.
Hitchhiker is a mystery game set along lost highways, where your goal is to solve the puzzle of your own backstory. As a hitchhiker with no memory or destination, you catch a series of rides across a strange and beautiful landscape, tracking the mysterious disappearance of a person close to you. Piece together their memories by catching rides with strangers across the country who provide clues to your character’s past and solutions to various environmental puzzles.
The narrative-driven interactive gameplay revolves around five distinct Hitch-hiked rides players take trying to recover lost memories through dialogue with an eclectic mix of drivers, each with their own quirky character traits.

Super Meat Boy Forever, Team Meat’s long, long awaited sequel to 2010’s runaway platforming hit Super Meat Boy, will be out for Xbox One & Series X/S and PlayStation 4 & 5 on April 16th for $19.99 / Ł15.99 / €15.99. This follows its December release on Nintendo Switch and Epic Games Store.
This much anticipated sequel also moves the Meat Boy saga forward, as Meat Boy and his partner Bandage Girl have had a child, Nugget, who has unfortunately been kidnapped by the sinister stillborn psychopath, Dr. Fetus (I hate that guy!). So now it’s up to Meat Boy, Bandage Girl, and some surprising new characters in the Meat Boy Cinematic Universe, to rescue the kidnapped child.
In the time since we saw him last, Meat Boy has been hitting the gym and he now packs a punch with an oversized, Battletoads-esque right fist that packs a mean whollup! Combined with new slide and plummet maneuvers, Meat Boy is more agile than ever!
What’s better than playing through Super Meat Boy Forever once? The answer is simple: Playing through Super Meat Boy Forever several times and having new levels to play each time! Levels are randomly generated and each time the game is completed the option to replay the game appears and generates a whole new experience by presenting different levels with their own unique secret locations. We’ve handcrafted literally thousands of levels for players to enjoy and conquer. You can replay Super Meat Boy Forever from start to finish several times before ever seeing a duplicate level. It is truly a remarkable feat of engineering and a monumental example of ignoring the limits of rational game design and production.
“As great as it was for Super Meat Boy to make his return on Switch and the Epic Games Store, no return would be complete without a victory lap on PlayStation and Xbox platforms - which many of you may remember Meat Boy making his console premiere on over a decade ago,” said Team Meat co-founder and programmer Tommy Refenes. “Super Meat Boy Forever isn’t just more of the same though. This is Meat Boy evolved. He now has a completely different moveset, controls, power-ups, and endless level remixes that can be played forever!”
Super Meat Boy Forver launches on Xbox and PlayStation consoles on Friday, April 16, 2021.

Curve Digital has announced that Embr will make the leap to Xbox, PlayStation, and Nintendo Switch at the same time it enjoys its full launch on PC this summer.
Embr - developed by Muse Games - is part satirical commentary on the world’s ever-expanding gig economy that increasingly dominates our lives, and part brilliantly silly multiplayer.
Play charges you and your friends with coming together to have a crack at fighting fires and rescuing residents - if you call throwing them directly onto the ground from open windows a ‘rescue’, that is.
In Embr, players either take on the game solo or work together in online teams
tackling blaze after blaze to earn tips from clients, picking up the ever-so-crucial 5-star rating in order to earn cash, upgrade tools, and hopefully become the ultimate ‘have-a-go hero’ firefighter. Want to make a little money on the side? Then you can also deliver takeout food on the fly with ‘Embr Eats’. Embr really is the ‘uber’ experience for anyone who wants to get to grips with the gig economy.
As Howard Tsao, Team Lead at Muse Games explains, ultimately Embr is one of a growing number of games that thrives on making failing fun.
“It’s safe to say this was never designed to be your typical firefighting simulator,” adds Tsao. “Embr’s role is to focus a comedic eye on where the gig economy is headed - the
ultimate end we’re all hurtling towards, where your everyday person on the street takes a crack at some of the most important, specialised, and crucial jobs for a bit of extra cash. The end result is just as hectic as it sounds and, within the relative safety of a game, an amazing amount of fun. We can’t wait to launch it fully on PC and, just as importantly, bring it to a brand new audience on console later this year.”
Having treated Early Access players to three major updates in less than a year adding fresh modes and content aplenty, Embr has also added new content today in the form of a Golden Toilet Grenade to keep those clients safe while you take care of the fire and an explosive Demolition game mode where players get to start the fire for a (bit of) change!
Embr is designed for Xbox One and PS4, but will run perfectly on Xbox Series X|S and PS5. Keep an eye out for more details on Embr’s launch on Xbox, PlayStation, Nintendo
Switch, and PC later this year.
Independent development studio, Donkey Crew, has confirmed that Last Oasisis available to download now on the Xbox Games Store via the Xbox Game Preview program priced at $29.99 or regional equivalent.
Last Oasis was born out of Donkey Crew’s mission to tackle the challenges of the Survival MMO genre and elevate its best features to create the ultimate survival experience. Working closely with their dedicated and growing community, that mission continues today in Xbox’s Game Preview program alongside Steam Early Access and with the arrival of Season 3, creating a more customisable way to play.
Set thousands of years in the future on a post-apocalyptic Earth, Last Oasis sees players take on the role of nomadic survivors, forced to outrun the scorching sun after a cataclysmic event has halted the planet's rotation. Nomads must traverse the massive open world on wooden wind-powered land ships known as Walkers, which can be adapted for travel, transportation, harvesting, and combat. The remnants of humanity survive only by sending unwilling nomads into the passing oases to face warring clans and gather the necessary resources to keep moving. Not many return alive.
Let's take a look at the new trailer which was revealed as part of ID@Xbox’s debut Indie Showcase event in conjunction with Twitch.
Last Oasis is available today on Xbox One Consoles and will be playable on Xbox Series X|S via Backward Compatibility as well as offering players full cross-platform play support with Steam PC and fully synchronised updates across all platforms moving forward, starting with Season 3 content.
Season 3 is available on Xbox One Consoles and playable on Xbox Series X|S via Backward Compatibility, as well as full cross-platform play support across Xbox and Steam PC SKU’s.
