The soothing, mysterious piano loop and gorgeous visuals of The Voxel Agent’s The Gardens Between sets the tone for a captivating tale in the title’s launch trailer, which developer The Voxel Agents have released in celebration of the game’s launch today on consoles and PC.
The slow-paced, relaxing trailer for the puzzler sees friends Arina and Frendt as they traverse a number of small islands comprised of familiar parts of their lives blown up to unusual proportions. We see such things as couches and bowls of popcorn or video game consoles turned into gigantic objects as the duo walks calmly through the area holding hands.
Arina and Frendt use the power of time-control to manipulate the area around them and solve puzzles across a series of surreal scenes including islands being battered by stormy weather and ones that lay peacefully under the stars of a tranquil night sky.
The multi-award winning title scored a solid 9 out of 10 here on DualShockers for the use of its time-changing mechanic and its charming sense of wonder.
The Gardens Between is out now on PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, PC, and Mac. For a closer look, you can check out the launch trailer below:
