Like Twin Peaks, but with animals?
Indie publisher Fellow Traveller and developer Hiding Spot Games have revealed that Beacon Pines is now available on Switch. You can check out the game’s launch trailer above.
Set in a charming storybook town, Beacon Pines follows the story of Luka as he investigates an unfolding mystery with the help of his friends. Filled with vibrant characters and quirky interactions, it’ll be the choices of the player that determines how The Book — and the increasingly foreboding truth it hides — will unfold.
As the book’s reader, you’ll navigate the story’s turning points using The Chronicle: an interactive story tree that branches and grows along with your choices. Exploring one set of events can unlock new charms to use on another branch, leading you to jump back and forth between entirely different versions of the story in order to unravel the mysteries at the heart of Beacon Pines.
While helping Luka investigate the strange goings-on in Beacon Pines, you’ll collect special golden charms, each with a word engraved on it. These charms can be used at certain turning points in the story to fill in a blank word and drastically change everything that follows.
Beacon Pines is priced at $20 and takes up 935 MB of space.
