Pine, released on PC and iOS, is an action-adventure game. The project was developed by Twirlbound studio and released by Square Enix Collective.
The action takes place on Albamare island. The level of development of the in-game civilization is reminiscent of the Stone Age. People have never climbed the top of the food chain because of the presence of several other intelligent species, most of which boast greater strength and more impressive size.
We play as a young man who is a member of one of the last human tribes. His people stand on the brink of extinction and it is up to us to find a new home for our brothers and sisters.
The action in Pine is observed from the third-person perspective. While playing, we explore the open world, collect items, complete platforming challenges and, most importantly, fight.
As one of the weakest predators, the hero is often forced to rely on his cleverness and stealth. Open confrontations, however, don't mean suicide. Players can perform various attacks, combos, and dodges. We can also use bows. Interestingly, enemies can learn our tactics and increase their chances in clashes with us, e.g. by testing new methods or strengthening their physical attributes.
The foundation of the game in Pine is a dynamic world. The island lives its own life - all characters, animals, and tribes are controlled by advanced Artificial Intelligence modules that can make important decisions even in the absence of the player. The authors based this aspect of the game on dynamic simulation and modern knowledge about the functioning of ecosystems and their evolution, where each creature does what it can to survive and strengthen the position of its species. This often leads to major changes in the balance of power on the island, which affects the course of the game.
The island itself is full of secrets and their discovery not only allows us to get to know the history of this place but also provides us with access to many useful items. For example, finding a lighter allows you to use the fire to deter or attack enemies.
