Life sims shouldn’t replicate the stresses of real life – we can go outside for that. Instead, they should be cosy, comforting and offer escapism – quite possibly the ingredients from The Garden Path.
- I Wish My Eyes Had Lasers. Boom! Done
- Fix This! Gas Station Simulator Update On The Case
- Calling All Demigods: Astria Ascending Out This Month
- See The Other Side Of The Berlin Wall In Industria
The visuals are immediately striking as if watching one of your favourite children’s books coming to life. It’s no surprise that solo developer(!) Louis Durrant (a.k.a. carrotcake) is an illustrator too.
The Garden Path unsurprisingly is about the joys of gardening, focusing on quiet moments and tranquillity. Quite frankly, the promo could have been one still with these words, and I’d be on board.
It’s about tending to your garden, growing flowers, fishing and making friends at a pace suited to you. Your garden is as organic as its real life counterpart and will grow with you, based on your design.
- A humble gardening life-sim with real-time progress even when you’re away.
- Rich illustrated visuals and original soundtracks that draw you in.
- A charming cast of characters, all with their own unique personalities and stories to tell. Some of your vegetable-headed friends may even decide to move in!
- Plant seeds, watch them grow, then harvest them for materials to use later.
- Go fishing and score a big catch, collect dustflies, and trade your findings for new items.
- Collect furniture, then decorate the garden and your tent to make it feel like home.
