Although we are a site that focuses on portable games, every now and then a game is submitted on Kickstarter and/or Steam that looks promising and likely to be presented on the Switch.

Beacon Pines is a cute and scary adventure game set in a magical story. You play both the reader of the book and the main character, Luke. The game has a Kickstarter campaign where 1,345 backers have pledged over $49,000. The campaign runs until 5pm. In March, with a goal of $30,000, the campaign was already fully funded. There is no confirmed release date for the game yet, but there is a free demo of the game on Steam that you can try out. But a Switch release is also planned!

The world of the picture book

Beacon Pines is, of course, a wonderful game that wants to enter the world of history books. It is a narrative adventure in which you play a young deer named Luke. Luke’s father is dead and his mother is missing, poor kid! Because of his situation, Luca lives with his grandmother and spends his days with his best friend Rolo.

Mystery camp

The town they live in looks nice and peaceful, but appearances are deceiving, and Rolo has heard rumors about an abandoned warehouse that could turn everything in town upside down!

The plot of Beacon Pines is interesting, the history book appeals to you. The story of Beacon Pines does not end with the missing words in the story. You can change the course of the story at certain points in the game, when you are trained in the storybook to play the events that unfold according to your choices.

By collecting the Prestige and using it to disrupt events in history, you completely rewrite the fate of Beacon Pines.  A single word can change the course of history. A chronicle is a record of decisions made, it is a big tree in which you can see the turning points of history.

Once the decision is made, you can open the spell book at any time. And go back and change your mind with another choice of charm and see what happens to the story.
