A lot can happen on the road, and while I’m not entirely sure exactly what happened during my brief time spent with Highway 32, I remained entertained. Maybe the mix of groovy pixelated visuals and a rather odd story did the trick.
Whatever the case, everything certainly started out perfectly normal, the main character finding himself in a diner – one that I almost immediately exited. Why? Don’t ask. Couldn’t tell ya if I wanted to. There was just something about that place. Nah, it seemed pretty normal, and as such, I assumed that the tone for the entirety of this AdventureJam 2020 creation had been set: simple, brief, and perhaps even relaxing. Yeah. Nope.
As soon as I got in my car and started driving, well… to say much more would run the risk of spoilers. Including the puzzles. Ah, the puzzles. Which I’ll totally spoil: box pushing! Yeah. Not a fan, although at least in this one, they did at least make for somewhat amusing puzzle elements. Unlike the ending, which was just one big puzzle (so to speak). I did my best to pay attention to every tidbit of information the game would provide along the way, and yet the ending – what led to that, and why? So darn weird.
