Cheerful slacker Olive thought that taking an outdoor ed. class during her final year of high school would be an easy credit, but the year-end camping trip turns out to be a lot more than she bargained for. When an argument with another classmate spurs the hot-tempered Sage to run off alone into the woods, Olive follows her, hoping to lift her spirits and make sure she’s safe. But the bubbly and energetic Heather has the same idea, and tensions between her and Sage threaten to turn the trip into even more of a disaster than it is already. Olive just wants her classmates to get along, but they seem to disagree on everything—and to make things even worse, they’ve lost track of how to get back to their campsite! Follow three stressed-out teens on a journey full of bickering, mosquitoes, and self-discovery.

Take A Hike! takes approximately 30-45 minutes to read, and includes audio captioning and adjustable textbox opacity for accessibility (available in the preferences menu). It also contains some strong language, brief references to drug use, mildly sexist remarks, and characters generally being grumpy and rude to each other a lot.

All character sprites used in Take A Hike! are available for purchase from DejiNyucu! You can get them and use them in your own game! Full credits here.

Just curious, where are save files stored for this VN?  Not that they're that important since the VN is linear and pretty short anyway, but I'm just curious.  At first I wondered whether it was log.txt, but some testing quickly ruled that out.  I'm now wondering whether it's in AppData\Roaming\RenPy\GrumpyGirls-[some numbers].  The number of saves and quicksaves I have matches, and the VN *is* about grumpy girls, so..

Edit: Hmm, that's not it.  Renaming that folder doesn't cause the saves to be lost, even though it does certainly get re-created every time I launch the VN.

renpy stores saves both in <user profile>/appdata/roaming/renpy/<game name> and <game folder>/game/saves, (appdata is in priority when loading). you need to delete both if you want to reset the game


Picked this up in one of the giant charity bundles and enjoyed this short but sweet VN.

I just have one question about the setting (encoded via ROT13 so as to avoid spoilers for anyone who doesn't want to see it):

Thanks for the comment, I'm glad you enjoyed it! You're totally correct with your question :)


Hooray!  I'll have to visit it sometime.  Seems like a great place to enjoy nature!


I picked this randomly out of a bundle and liked it a lot! Very cute!

Thanks, I'm glad you enjoyed it!

I can't play! It just says that and i don't know what to do, anyone can help me?

Sorry to hear you're having trouble! Can you send a screenshot of the specific error message you're getting? What operating system are you on? If it's easier for you, you could email me (parttimestorier at gmail) and I'll see if I can help you sort it out.

thank you!


i wasn't surprised by the queer representation in this, but the poly twist towards the end WAS a (pleasant!) surprise. well done!


Thanks, I'm glad you liked it! That's what I was aiming for. :)


Loved this super cute game! Definitely recommend checking it out if you have an hour to spare. The character dialogue is where this game really excels, you can't help but root for some of them!

Great job Jane! <3

Thanks so much!
