Beacon Pines Looks to Combine Creepy and Cute in a Fun Adventure

Beacon Pines sees you play as both the reader of the book and its main character, Luka. Players will then help Luka investigate the weird phenomenon of Beacon Pines while collecting special golden charms.

The team of Hiding Spot brings us an adorably eerie adventure game set in a magical storybook full of whimsy, wonder, and a little bit of the uncanny valley. Beacon Pines sees you play as both the reader of the book and its main character, Luka.

The story unfolds as something strange occurs at an old warehouse, and Luka and his friends seem to be the only ones taking notice. What follows is a trail of mystery, intrigue, and some youthful teenage sleuthing reminiscent of simpler times–if you were an anthropomorphic animal.

Players will then help Luka investigate the weird phenomenon of Beacon Pines while collecting special golden charms, each with a word engraved on it, and a given effect. These charms can be used at certain turning points in the story to fill in a blank word and drastically change everything that follows. This includes rewriting past events. Trippy.
