Indie game developer The Voxel Agents confirms The Gardens Between will be releasing on Nintendo Switch later this year. The launch will be simultaneous to the previously-announced PlayStation 4 and PC versions.
Scheduled to come out in the third quarter of the year, The Gardens Between follows two best friends as they explore a surreal world of mysterious gardens. Players will control the flow of time as Arina and Frendt move through dreamlike environments peppered with curious objects. The pair will manipulate the world around them to alter how objects move through time, solving puzzles to ignite constellations and illuminate defining moments in their friendship.
“The Gardens Between is an homage to the friendships from our childhoods that felt so impossibly large that the bonds could never be broken,” says Simon Joslin, co-founder of The Voxel Agents. “We took inspiration from our own childhoods when building the narrative of The Gardens Between. We wanted to tap into something relatable, familiar and nostalgic. The magic of being a kid is fleeting, but the story of Arina and Frendt captures that enchantment in a beautiful package.”
On Nintendo Switch players will be able to follow Arina and Frendt on the go, solving mind-bending puzzles on a break at work or enjoying the gorgeous environments with friends at a party. The console’s HD Rumble feature brings the game’s lush world to life, underscoring curious moments of time and imagination.
The Voxel Agents is headquartered in Melbourne, Australia, and is best known for its Train Conductor series. The Gardens Between is rated "E for Everyone" by the ESRB.
