The Voxel Agents appear to have a wonderful gem of a puzzle adventure game coming up later this year.
The Gardens Between, slated for a Q4 2017 PC/Mac launch via Steam, follows the bittersweet story of Arina and Frendt, BFFs who together explore an abstract dream world consisting of lush, vibrant gardens with vegetation growing up around objects of significance from the characters’ past. Holding hands, the two pals are guided through what appear to be diorama-esque environments, the goal being to ignite beacons using a lantern to cause constellations to burst into the sky. Each constellation will reveal a moment in Arina and Frendt’s relationship, ultimately building into an emotional tale about the bonds of friendship and growing up.
Watch the new teaser trailer below for a peek at The Gardens Between‘s beautifully illustrated art and gameplay. At a glance, I’m getting a sort of Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons meets Pan-Pan vibe from this one. Needless to say, I’m dying to see more.
