Beacon Pines, a "cute and creepy" storybook adventure that we reported on earlier this month, has now flown past its initial Kickstarter goal to land a release on Switch.
At the time of writing, the project has earned over $48,500 from backers, comfortably outdoing its target of $30,000 with ten days still left to go. With a Switch release now locked in, the project is headed towards a number of stretch goals – fishing and cooking features have already been unlocked, and voice acting is the next target.
If you need a quick recap, here's an official description and feature list:
Beacon Pines is a cute and creepy adventure game within a magical storybook. You play as both the reader of the book and its main character, Luka. Explore the world to find word charms. Use your charms to change the course of fate!
Normal isn’t what it used to be. Glowing trees, shady corporations, running for your life, and never knowing who to trust. Welcome to Beacon Pines!
- Explore an illustrated mountain town to collect word charms
- Use those words to alter the story
- Use those words to make friends
- Use those words to weave the fabric of fate itself
- Open the magical book at any time to go back and change your decisions
- Beautifully illustrated art by Ilse Harting
- Original soundtrack by award winning musician Matt Meyer
The Kickstarter ends on 5th March, so if you're interested in learning more about the project and giving it your backing, make sure to head over there and check it out before then.
What do you think? Will you be backing this one? Maybe one for the wishlist in the future? Let us know in the comments.
This looks interesting! That's a really unique game mechanic.
That art style is gorgeous. Seems like my type of game.
Buyer beware, there's no way a 30 000$ goal will help cover any of the Dev work needed for this game full time, so it's a project that the creators will be working on in their spare time.
Could end up being a very delayed kickstarter.
@pixelpatch To me it looks like a lot of the artwork and programing is already done, but I could see the funds running out especially with things like voice acting.
@Tourtus Hmmm, at least with it being mostly done this is way more hopeful, but yeah that amount of money will dry up fast.
Absolutely charming. I might just back this.
Who else read the title as Bacon Pines?
Wow, that's a really wholesome looking package!
Hoping for it to come together as well as shown here. Even if that ends up being four or five years from now. ^^
Played the demo and had to stop halfway through... to go back the Kickstarter! I love the setting, art style, and music!
Liking the look of this
The art direction sold me. I'm in. I love these types of games.
