Game release: “Beacon Pines” (PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series, Nintendo Switch)

Hiding Spot and Fellow Traveller‘s visual novel/adventure game Beacon Pines literally brings together the reader and its heroes.

Meta-fiction elements in games can often offer some unique experiences that transcend the possibilities of literature. Here one takes control of both the reader of a book and its main character Luka who investigates the strange events in the titular area.

Gameplay-wise, one collects words in the form of golden charms that can be used in parts of the plot to fill in blanks, changing the course of the story. While this is done by the character and his friends, the reader has the power to jump back and forth between alternative story branches, making this the ultimate cooperation between player, reader, and in-game characters.

The game is out now on PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S and Nintendo Switch with a 10% launch discount that lasts until September 28, 2022, at 3 PM UTC. It’s also available in a collector’s edition which includes the soundtrack and artbook.

About nufafitc

Being an avid gamer, cinemaniac, and bookworm in addition to other things the internet and new media present, I'm also very much into DIY music, rock and pop in particular. Writing short or longer pieces about anything that interests me has always made me happy. As both an editor for German website "Adventure-Treff" and UK website "Future Sack", I like to write reviews and news about recent developments in the movies, games and book industry.
