The Gardens Between, one of our favorite games of 2018, (read our review here and listen to our interview with Simon Joslin from The Voxel Agents here) is making it's way to the iPhone and iPad on May 16th. Below is the press release information about the release:
On iPhone and iPad, The Gardens Between shines brighter than before. The extra screen space of portrait orientation, and the super-wide screens of devices like the iPhone XS introduce aesthetic breathing room to complement the detailed puzzle islands. A sight to behold across all devices, The Gardens Between further benefits from the power of the iPad Pro (3rd Generation), where the adventure targets 60fps.
Everyday objects pepper the landscape in a series of eclectic gardens scattered across enchanting islands. Each trinket holds a special place in the hearts of Arina, a headstrong girl, and Frendt, a boy wise beyond his years. During their journey, the two will reflect on the memories they’ve built, what must be let go, and what should never be left behind.
Manipulate time to guide Arina and Frendt to the apex of each alluring, enigmatic island. Navigate seemingly impassible gaps and obstacles by changing the cause and effect around them. Light up the sky with threads of their memories, spun into constellations that reveal the poignant truth at the heart of their tale.
Updated touchscreen controls, Made For iPhone controller support, Taptic Engine support, and iCloud syncing across devices make the vexing puzzles ofThe Gardens Between more accessible than ever. With headphones, Arina and Frendt’s journey becomes an immersive experience unlike any other as the emotional puzzler has been fine tuned for its mobile debut.
“The player support for the story we’re telling will resonate with us forever,” says Simon Joslin, co-founder of The Voxel Agents. “Their love for The Gardens Between made it possible to bring Arina and Frendt’s story to iOS, where a new audience can reflect on the timeless whimsy of childhood wonder.”
The Gardens Between will blossom on the App Store May 16, 2019 for $4.99 and is available now for pre-order.
