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.

  • TARTARUS Review

    TARTARUS is a unique concept in that it makes computer puzzles come alive with realistic representations, where most titles try to make abstract mini games out of “hacking.” The plot and overall horror atmosphere don’t come together, however. Overall, this is a solid attempt at making light programming puzzles interesting, but more work needs to be done in this area before we see a title that is truly free of tedium.

    Steamburg needs more polishing to be player-friendly, being too buggy and clumsy in its current state. But even if these problems were addressed, Steamburg would merely be a predictable puzzle adventure with lacklustre visuals, a stereotypical storyline, and uninspired puzzles.

    David Su’s video game musical features a unique playthrough with an award-winning soundtrack. Although short, the game provides a very relaxing experience, embarking on the archer Yi’s journey to save the village. After several playthroughs, I was craving to play more story games with a focus on original music. However, the market for these games is limited, leading me to believe that this could be an excellent platform for more original composers to feature their music in a unique, visual way.

  • Indygo Review

    Educating the public about mental illness is important, but a problem inherent in accurately portraying depression is that, well, it isn't fun to be depressed. Indygo skillfully builds a gloomy atmosphere: The voice acting, music, black and white art style, and narrative all work together to convey the disconnection and emptiness a person suffering from depression can feel. You may come away with a better understanding of depression by playing, but if you're looking for entertainment along with your education, you will be disappointed.

  • ELEX Review

    ELEX is an ode to fans of Gothic and Risen, and fans will most likely be satisfied. How detailed the title is makes it clear: Piranha Bytes isn’t trying to cash in on an aging franchise.  That being said, the issues cannot be brushed aside. It’s been nearly two decades since the studio published its first game, Gothic I, and what plagued the earlier titles plagues ELEX as well. And that, is a problem.
