Garden Life is a cozy gardening simulation game offers nature lovers and fans of relaxing games the chance to create their own oasis of calm.

Players can expect a one-of-a-kind gaming experience. Thanks to the studio’s expert knowledge of the world of flora, Garden Life offers a realistic simulation in which players can express their creativity with no limits. They are free to choose their favorite plants, care for them and see them develop each in a unique way, creating a harmonious natural composition that will transform their garden into a genuine green haven of peace.

The painstaking care taken with the sound environment and the art direction give Garden Life a warm atmosphere where anyone - whether or not they have green fingers - will be able to create the garden of their dreams, however they see fit.

Using appropriate gardening techniques and your creativity, bring an abandoned plot back to life, and experience the joy and peace that cultivating your own garden brings.

The game’s story mode immerses the player in the warm atmosphere of a charming, secluded village. They take on the role of the newly appointed steward of a neglected community garden. Jasmine, a local photographer with a passion for flowers and gardening, will be on hand to welcome them. She is just one of a host of colourful characters players will meet in their adventure.

Throughout the game, players will have to meet a number of requests made by their fellow villagers, which will enable them to earn precious Florins, the game’s currency. They can then unlock new areas of the garden, purchase new tools and ornaments from the store run by Leslie, which can be found in the village square.

They can also unlock a variety of structures during their adventure, such as the pavilion, a building that houses all the flower sculptures crafted in tribute to the locals, based on their personality and their passions.

Designed both for green-fingered experts and gardening novices, this Story mode offers players the chance to garden at their own pace, in a stress-free setting. By working together with their fellow villagers and harnessing their creativity, they can give the garden a new lease of life!
