The Gardens Between is a single-player adventure-puzzle game about time, memory and friendship.

Best friends Arina and Frendt fall into a series of vibrant, dreamlike island gardens peppered with everyday objects from their childhood. Together they embark on an emotional journey that examines the significance of their friendship: the memories they’ve built, what must be let go, and what should never be left behind.

Lost in a mysterious realm where cause and effect are malleable, the friends find that time flows in all directions. Manipulate time to solve puzzles and reach the apex of each isle. Follow the duo as they unpack and explore their significant moments spent together, lighting up constellations and illuminating threads of a bittersweet narrative.

  • I enjoyed this. One of the few games I've ever finished. It's easy and relaxing, but still uses a little brain. Good length, I think if it'd gone much longer it would have gotten a bit boring.

  • Aussie game

  • Really nice little art game and made in Australia.

  • Thanks for sharing this. I like checking out Aussie games & am always happy to support the local indie scene.
