Pine Hearts is a love letter to those who have experienced loss and want to find a joyous refuge to unwind and remember fond memories.

Welcome to Pine Hearts Caravan Park!

Pine Hearts is a cosy little narrative-adventure game set in the sleepy scenery of Pine Hearts Caravan Park. Explore the great outdoors as you uncover items, unlock new paths, and discover all the little secrets stuffed throughout the Park.

As Tyke, hop into your hiking boots and explore the paths and rivers of this cosy little world. Rummage around the park and find handy tools that will help you on your journey as you fill out your trusty hillwalking journal. Rediscover memories of Tyke's time in the park many summers ago and unearth the heartfelt story of his childhood.

Pine Hearts is a warm, thoughtful game about love, life, memories, and family. It tells a story of the loss of a family member with tenderness and care, but please be aware of this subject matter before playing the game. Pine Hearts takes the item-based progression of Zelda, combines it with Souls-like level design and wraps it all up in a wholesome aesthetic with a focus on puzzles, not combat.

Create a lovely refuge for yourself and your friends in this wholesome land of puzzles and wild ‘n’ warming aesthetics.

Hyper Luminal Games have been working on making Pine Hearts as accessible as possible. “We are extremely proud of the work that has gone into Pine Hearts accessibility options,” said  Searra Leishman, UX/UI Designer and Accessibility Lead.

“The game will be launching with more than ten different accessibility settings. The playable demo for Wholesome Snack currently features the first 3 of these: Simplified Controls, Colour Blocking Mode, and Control Rebinding. There is also an accessibility onboarding flow in the demo, which allows users to make some quick choices about their options before they jump into gameplay. Beyond this, we have a further 7 options implemented that will be available with the full release.”

Interested fans can check out a playable PC demo.

Key Features:

  • Make new friends with other adventurers around Caravan Park
  • Explore a thoughtful story about love, life, memories, and family
  • Unlock cool tools and abilities that help unearth the mysteries of Caravan Park
  • Puzzles to be pondered and solved
  • Build sandcastles!
