OverviewOverview

The Gardens Between is a puzzle game set in dreamlike island gardens where you play as best friends Arina and Frendt. You work around the island levels collecting balls of light in your lantern, manipulating time to solve puzzles and removing obstacles. As you progress you explore the interrelated cause and effect of each aspect of the island.

The game examines the significance of their friendship, their memories, what they have to let go of, and what they value most. And is, additionally, visually stunning in its simplistic design and thoughtful colour palette, invoking the feeling of childhood play by surrounding the friends with oversized inanimate objects like TVs and vintage games consoles.
