Twirlbound and Kongregate announced today that they are bringing their open-world adventure simulation, Pine, to Switch in August.

The game was succesfully Kickstarted back in 2017, but it was only in today’s Nindies Showcase that we found out that it is coming to Switch. You can find a brief overview of the game below from its Steam page:

A Story of Humans
Pine is an open world action adventure simulation game. Set in the beautiful world of Albamare, you take on the role of Hue, a smart young adult who will have to explore, trade, and fight his way through a vibrant world filled with creatures much smarter than humans.

Their Story Becomes Yours
As you’re looking for a new home for your tribe to settle in, you’ll have to engage with the large-scale ecology of Albamare. Prepare by exploring, bartering, talking, crafting and fighting in six different biomes, with and against a diverse cast of species that will not simply help you.

A Struggle for Survival
In Pine, things will happen across the open game world even without your involvement. All organisms are alive and will try what they can to survive. You can choose to befriend a species, fight alongside them, or you may also to attack them, steal their food or force them to abandon their current habitat. All of this will make the species move across the ecological spectrum.

It’s no easy feat bringing an open-world adventure game to Switch after the huge success of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and the art style is certainly reminiscent of that. Then again, given the time gap since Zelda was released (can you believe it’s been two years?) perhaps now is the right time for a game like this.

Will you be picking up Pine when it launches later this year? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
