The Garden Path is a slice-of-life sim about the joys of gardening, the comfort of building a safe place, and the butterflies you get from making new friends.

The Garden Path is a cozy, pensive taste of the simple life

Whether you're fishing, growing, trading or just hanging with new friends, a wonderful and wistful adventure awaits when wandering The Garden Path.

As the new gardener of this forgotten place, you have a chance to bring life back to a garden that once thrived with love and colour. The Garden Path explores the quiet moments of a life well lived, where your garden will grow to reflect both the passing of time (which runs in concert with the real world) and your own design. Curate, craft, and grow the garden, go fishing for a big catch, make copious amounts of tea, and hang out with your new vegetable and animal-headed friends. Built to be played as and when you wish, the garden will present new encounters, stories to weave, and distractions each time you play. Of course, you may also like to check back in to see how your flowers have grown!

With a stunning, hand-drawn storybook aesthetic and beautiful day and night original soundtracks, The Garden Path will welcome you with its warmth, tranquility, and low-pressure gameplay. Played at your own pace, the garden is a tender world of familiar sights and sounds, melody, and friendly faces. A safe place to call your own, to curate, and to reflect. A home away from home.

Solo developer carrotcake and publisher Mooncat Games are overjoyed to announce that after 7 years of development, The Garden Path will release on Steam,, and Nintendo Switch on July 30th.
