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.

  • TAURONOS Review

    Tauronos promises an intriguing story, but since running out of lives forces you to start your journey again from the beginning, few players will have the patience to persevere and experience more than a fraction of it. Even so, the perfectly fitted aesthetic supports a minimalist but hardworking narrative, guaranteeing that players who grow frustrated enough to walk away still do so with regret.

  • BLACK DAY Early Access Review

    Black Day is an “Early Access” third person shooter with FPS elements.  Rather than focusing on a set story and setting, Black Day is a military sandbox where players change the parameters of their missions.  Featuring an experience-based progression system, Black Day rewards players for handicapping themselves via difficult obstacles with new equipment and maps.  Helios Productions self proclaims this title as “very ambitious,” promising that they only want to provide an excellent final product.  The promise of so many features, paired with the beauty of the Unreal Engine, begs the question; is it able to deliver on its ambition?

    Battle Chasers: Nightwar combines the classic turn-based RPG with action-RPG elements. This fun twist to the traditional RPG divisions enhances gameplay, strategy, and character customization.

  • Inmates Review

    Inmates grabs you right off the bat and starts yelling in your face: you are screaming and afraid, but at the end of it all, you’ll probably tell your friends that they need to come over and get yelled at, too. Besides the game world being well designed, and the sounds making you check over your shoulder every few minutes, the creativity, the puzzles, and the story offer an experience that is to die for.

  • The Norwood Suite Review

    The experience of The Norwood Suite is incredibly unique, each design choice, be it of the musical or visual arts, very much reflects Cosmo D's style. The world in which you play feels well developed and full, but not cluttered, keeping you on the path of the game, but not on rails. The Norwood Suite — along with their first release, Off-Peak — are two games worth the effort and confusion.

  • The Journey Down: Chapter Three Review

    The Journey Down: Chapter Three is the sort of title that leaves me saddened by its completion, but eager to see what the crew at SkyGoblin will do next. The Journey Down feels like a love letter to the genre, and its legacy – there are elements of LucasArts, Sierra On-Line, and other industry giants present here. But it manages to stand alone as a memorable trilogy that only improved with each new chapter. It is a worthy addition to any puzzle-loving, soundtrack-blasting, humor-embracing point-&-click fan's library, and Chapter Three is a conclusion to the tale that's just what the doctor ordered.
