22 September, 2022 - Beacon Pines, the charming fairytale adventure with a twist, is launching today on Xbox One, Xbox GamePass, Steam, Nintendo Switch and PC platforms.

In this Stranger Things-meets-Winnie-the-Pooh adventure developed by Hiding Spot Games and published by Fellow Traveller (Citizen Sleeper, Paradise Killer, Suzerain), you’ll help Luka, Rolo and Beck uncover an unexpected mystery beneath the town’s cosy veneer. With the outcome of the story determined solely by the ‘charms’ used to tell the tale, what fate will you decide for Beacon Pines?  

Kicking-off the Fellow Traveller publisher sale, Beacon Pines will enchant players with its quirky characters, intriguing mysteries and unique story tree mechanics.

Beacon Pines is out now on Xbox One, Xbox Game Pass, Nintendo Switch, Steam, and other PC stores for $19.99.

About Fellow Traveller Games

Fellow Traveller is an indie games publishing label exploring the possibility space of what narrative games can be. Since our founding in 2012, we have sought out and partnered with pioneering game developers working on unusual games with narrative at their core.

You may know us from the serene underwater sci-fi adventure (In Other Waters), the murder mystery with a cast of otherworldly suspects (Paradise Killer), the political RPG in which you lead a broken country your first term as President (Suzerain), or the noir adventure set before, during, and after the Big Bang (Genesis Noir).

Join us on a journey into a world of surprising games and unusual stories.
