As part of this week’s Indie House Direct, US-based indie developer Hiding Spot Games has announced that their charming and cutesy storybook adventure title, Beacon Pines, will be heading to Nintendo Switch and PC in the “first half of 2022.”
Beacon Pines is a narrative-focused experience that blends the vibe and tone of Stranger Things, Undertale and Winnie The Pooh, and moulds it into an eerie tale centered around a perplexing smalltown mystery. The game recently smashed its $30,000 Kickstarter goal. As it stands, Beacon Pines has managed to net $84,548 from 2,782 backers.
Clearly, Beacon Pines boasts a wonderfully distinct art-style and some really creative storybook gameplay. As the book’s reader, you’ll get to play a big role in how the mystery ultimately unravels.
For more information, here’s the rundown courtesy of the game’s recent press release:
