Play OverviewPlay Overview

Pine Hearts (2024) is a narrative adventure set in a caravan park, where you revisit childhood memories to come to terms with the loss of a father. Play involves exploring the world, collecting items and talking to locals. It stands out for the cosy Animal-Crossing-style play imbued with a poignant story about the bond between a father and a son.

You arrive at the Pine Hearts Caravan Park, pop on your hiking boots and explore the paths and rivers of its cosy habitat. As you go you find tools to help you on your way and complete the pages of your hillwalking journal. It's an adventure that takes you back to your childhood memories of visiting the park with your father.

As you progress you collect more and more water droplets that slowly complete your memories of days gone by - and the connection you had with your father. More of the world opens up as you gain the tools to remove trees and boulders. What starts as a simple and contained park soon opens into a sprawling wilderness full of hidden items, new paths and lots of little secrets to discover.

The result is an unusual way to engage with the loss of a parent. You explore the world and its related memories at your own pace. It's a warm, thoughtful game about love, life, memories, and family.
