The open-world adventure game Pine recently received another significant update on Switch. With version 1.05, Twirlbound improved the performance and visuals, added a camera sensitivity setting, and more.

Below are the patch notes in full:

Twirlbound has announced that a new 1.03 update for Pine is live on Switch. It updates the main menu icon, fixes villages and objects that were wrongly popping out (and sometimes blocking progression), and includes camera invert.

It’s also been confirmed that another patch is in the works. The update will heavily reduce loading times, increase draw distance, fix lots of smaller bugs, and improve graphical quality. It will be submitted to Nintendo for approval “soon.”


The open-world action-adventure game Pine made it to Switch this week as a digital download. We have the game’s launch trailer below.

Pine is seeing a month-long delay on Switch. Though it was originally scheduled for October 10, it will now launch about a month later.

We have the following overview and trailer for Pine:

A lot of indie developers turn to Kickstarter to get the funding necessary to back up their projects, but not all of them succeed. Pine is an indie project that could be one of the successful ones.

Indie developer Twirlbound is working on bringing a new action adventure game which main premise would be the adaptation of an open-world to how the player plays.

Pine will be set in an open-world environmet with a lot of species that can evolve or devolve due to player actions. Among their inspirations they mention the Zelda series, the nemesis system of Shadow of Mordor and the progression through choices in the Fable games.

For now the initial plan is launch Pine for Q4 2018 on PC, but Twirlbound has future plans to port it to PS4, XB1 and, of course, Switch.
