"This garden really is a special place..."

Put down new roots and become part of a close-knit community in this meditative gardening sim.

Nestled away in the centre of a bustling seafront city, Gold Street Community Garden had long been the heart of the neighbourhood. But in recent years things haven't been quite so rosy.

As a newcomer to the garden, you have the opportunity to reinvigorate and revitalise this community cornerstone. Help out your neighbours, grow a variety of plants, and support those around you to flourish and bloom.

In this demo you can: 

  • Explore the whole garden, rendered in cosy 3D graphics 
  • Plant and water basic crops in the garden 
  • Uncover the early stirrings of your neighbours' stories
  • Chill out and listen to relaxing music
