Get an early peek into the worlds of The Gardens Between

Check out the adventure puzzle game from The Voxel Agents coming to Windows in Q1 2018, with a trio of atmospheric trailers.

The Voxel Agents invites you to dive into the world of their upcoming adventure puzzle game The Gardens Between with a 40-minute audiovisual experience, available on YouTube today.

The Gardens Between is a surreal puzzle adventure that follows best friends, Arina and Frendt, as they fall into a mysterious world of beautiful garden islands. The player can traverse back and forwards in time to discover each garden's secrets and, along the way, reveal a story about friendship, childhood and growing up.

This trio of slow trailers is an artistic collaboration between The Voxel Agents and ambient musician Tim Shiel. It's designed as a relaxing and contemplative audiovisual peek into the beautiful and breathtaking world of The Gardens Between where observant viewers will find clues to the gardens' mysteries.

"The Gardens Between encourages careful and stress-free exploration," says Henrik Pettersson, Director, The Gardens Between. "We aim to make spaces worth resting in and we wanted to share a few these environments. We want players to immerse themselves in the mood and atmosphere of the game."

In crafting the bespoke album-length audio experience, musician Tim Shiel called upon a long cast of musical collaborators including acclaimed pianist Luke Howard, composer/vocalist Biddy Connor, and producer Wally de Backer (aka Gotye).

An album featuring the music from this playlist will be released on all music services later in 2017, but for now the only place to immerse yourself in this experience is via the YouTube playlist.

The Gardens Between will launch on Steam for Windows and Mac Q1 2018. For more information, visit the official website.

  • The Long Dark Review

    The Long Dark is imperfect, but it could be one of the best experiences in the survival genre. For the impatient, single-player gamer, The Long Dark holds little promise. However, if you relish the challenge of isolation and the feeling that you’re fighting against an environment that isn’t trying to kill you, but rather just doesn’t care about you, then you must try The Long Dark.

  • Pyre Review

    Gamers will talk about Pyre for a good while. Vivid visuals pair well with energizing audio, and both complement the subtle, mechanical gameplay; Pyre, a stunning package,provides with aplomb a depth of strategy not found in some AAA titles, and couches the experience in an engrossing narrative. Supergiant Games’ strongest showing to date, Pyre is a must play, a delight that can’t be recommended highly enough.

  • Planet Ancyra Chronicles Review

    Planet Ancyra Chronicles appears to be made by a team of developers who are each individually good at their jobs – the level design, the narrative design, and the score all have their moments. Unfortunately, it seems the team suffered from miscommunication, because this title’s individual parts struggle to fit together into a single, cohesive experience. Perhaps only the most persistent of players will be able to make it to the end of this otherwise interesting story.

  • The Walking Dead: A New Frontier - Episode 5 Review

    The Walking Dead: A New Frontier – Episode 5 is a gripping, emotional ending to this chapter in the series, but it's also one that doesn't quite hit the mark as well as the prior seasons of this successful franchise have. When it comes to the grand finale, players simply deserved a bigger, more satisfying resolution to Javier's story and the outcome facing him and his loved ones. And, while I did enjoy Clem's ending – again, I'll keep it vague – Clem's presence alone isn't enough to carry this piece of The Walking Dead: A New Frontier to the heights that prior episodes in this saga could reach.

  • Yonder: The Cloud Catcher Chronicles Review

    For an open-world, immersive experience replete with quests, fishing, farms, and more, look no further than Yonder: The Cloud Catcher Chronicles. The design is apt to please any gamer interested in what Yonder has to offer, while nightfall and the gloominess of a heavy rain ensure that players who might otherwise avoid overly bright hues don’t feel left out -- a sure recipe on Yonder’s part for broad appeal. However, as an exploration-heavy title, especially one that does not offer combat, the allure is counteracted in part; ultimately, though, all -- save the hardcore -- can enjoy Yonder.

  • Baobabs Mausoleum Ep.1 Ovnifagos Don't Eat Flamingos Review

    Seemingly an anomaly on the Steam store, Baobabs Mausoleum Ep. 1 Ovnifagos Don’t Eat Flamingos is a weird but worthwhile play.  It presents a unique and twisted world and a story with a considerable extent of both human imagination and sanity.  Each puzzle and problem is different and engaging, providing an innovative experience.  As the first installment in the series, we have hopeful anticipation for a successor, to see how the developers will continue to polish what they have here.

  • Minecraft: Story Mode: Hero in Residence Trailer Release

    Minecraft: Story Mode - Season Two continues Jesse's saga in a five-part, narrative-driven, episodic game series developed by Telltale in collaboration with Mojang and members of the Minecraft community. Though players' choices from the first season will carry over into season two, this new season will be accessible to both returning fans and newcomers alike. This second season will also include Telltale's multiplayer 'Crowd Play' feature, which allows friends and family to engage with the adventure together by helping to decide the direction of the story from any mobile device with an online connection.

  • No70: Eye of Basir Review

    No70: Eye of Basir is an ambitious title; while the visuals and audio are noteworthy, in the critical areas of story and gameplay, Basir is passable, not exceptional. The brief plot explores, then seems to abandon, what appeared to have been a key plot point, and, at times, it’s a bit unclear who your character even is. Issues with performance and geometry clipping, combined with some sloppy foliage and prop placement, occasionally break immersion: No70: Eye of Basir is a flawed gem with some good facets.
