The Simple Pleasures of The Gardens Between Commences This September

In what might be the “simplest deep game possible”, the minimalistic puzzle-solving of developer The Voxel Agents’ The Gardens Between is close on the horizon with a release date of September 20 finally confirmed for PS4, Switch & PC. The Gardens Between follows the subtle tale of best friends Arina and Frendt as they make their up and around a series of mountains with little more than left, right and jump being the player’s degree of controls — manipulating time along the way in working out how to get both characters to the top.

The Gardens Between has been three years in the making and though the game had initially expected to release in the fourth quarter of 2017, the scope of release has expanded since then, from its planned, singular debut on PC to now featuring on consoles. Check out the latest trailer below to get a feel for The Gardens Between’s simplified controls and rather punchy electronic beats alongside.
