Surreal time-travelling puzzle game The Gardens Between finally has a release date locked for next month. Find out more about this adventure of friendship.
Gosh, it’s been a while since we last heard of friendship-oriented adventure game The Gardens Between. It was announced back in February 2017, and that news was followed up by a trio of ambient teasers in July. The game missed its initial release window of late 2017, but not to worry: the game is set to release next month.
According to the devs, The Gardens Between will release on September 20th. The release will take place across PC, Mac, Linux, PS4 and Switch. For computers, the game will available on Steam as well as the Mac App Store.
There’s also a new trailer for the game. Check it out:
And here’s a snippet of what the game’s about:
Best friends Arina and Frendt fall into a series of vibrant, dreamlike island gardens peppered with everyday objects from their childhood. Together they embark on an emotional journey that examines the significance of their friendship: the memories they’ve built, what must be let go, and what should never be left behind.
Lost in a mysterious realm where cause and effect are malleable, the friends find that time flows in all directions. Manipulate time to solve puzzles and reach the apex of each isle. Follow the duo as they unpack and explore their precious moments spent together, lighting up constellations and illuminating threads of a bittersweet narrative.
The Gardens Between is being developed in Melbourne, Australia, by The Voxel Agents. The studio is far from a newbie to the development scene, but this is their first venture into PC/console territory.
