Beacon Pines officially coming to Switch after Kickstarter success

A beacon of success

We shared news about the Beacon Pines Kickstarter last week, and now we have even better news to share. The team behind the game was looking for $30k to bring the game to Switch, and they've manage to hit that goal easily. There's still 24 days left on the Kickstarter, leaving plenty of time to hit stretch goals. Read a bit about Beacon Pines below, then click over to kick in some cash!

Beacon Pines is a cute and creepy adventure game within a magical storybook. You play as both the reader of the book and its main character, Luka. Explore the world to find word charms. Use your charms to change the course of fate!

Good news! I played the demo on PC and it seems like a very promising story-driven adventure game.

The demo presents fairly linear paths with occasional "choose your own adventure" style options that will result in branching paths that can be drastically different. You collect Charms along the way which will offer more options. They are sort of reactions. Each fork in the path will allow you to choose from certain types of Charms appropriate for the situation at hand. The main mechanic along with the Charms is the ability to go back to any fork at any time, and possibly alter events by choosing a different Charm. This "time traveling" mechanic feels really unique and exciting!

Can't wait to see what the game shapes up to be!!
