Surreal adventure-puzzle game, The Gardens Between, is out now on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Steam, and the Mac App store.
Developed by The Voxel Agents, The Gardens Between follows two best friends on an emotional journey through a world of mysterious garden islands. As they embark on their journey, the duo will explore, “precious moments from their past, understanding how the flow of time changes what they’ve built and cherishing what remains.”
Each island contains relics from moments throughout their lives, with each puzzle requiring players to manipulate time to solve. As The Voxel Agents stated in their official announcement, players will “manipulate time backwards and forwards to uncover clues and find solutions that ignite constellations of memories written in the stars.”
The Gardens Between was recently showcased at this year’s Tokyo Game Show, and is available now for $19.99.
I am such a sucker for character-driven stories, and appreciate how the core time mechanic fits in with the rest of the game’s atmosphere. What do you think of the recent release? Will you be giving this game a shot? Let us know your thoughts down in the comments below!
