The news today is that the game has entered open beta for Android. It’s available globally barring the US. That being said, the US will of course be included in the global launch this summer, which is also when the game will become available to all Google Play Pass subscribers.
PG alum Harry Slater reviewed the iOS version at launch, calling it “a bright, moving, and at times utterly fantastic puzzling adventure”, before awarding it an impressive Gold Rating.
It’s also one of the most visually distinct games I can think of on mobile, delivering a series of stunning and explorable dioramas. The story focuses on best friends Arina and Frendt, who awaken in a strange world that seems to mimic their own, albeit in a highly-stylised, fantastical fashion.
You’ll go through their childhood memories and watch their friendship evolve over the course of the adventure. It’s all incredibly engaging, and what’s more is that the puzzles are actually pretty darn good.
On higher-end Android devices, such as the Google Pixel 3 and Samsung Galaxy S10, the game is said to achieve console-quality effects and animations.
The Gardens Between launches later this year across Android devices.. For more information about the developer please visit the official The Voxel Agents’ website and follow them on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Check out the full PocketGamer article here.
