Growing plants and gardens takes time, devotion, love, water, the right kind of soil, and sometimes some fertilizers. No wonder we can’t keep our plants alive ourselves, it takes a lot. But not anymore, as Garden In! is coming out on Steam in early 2023! In this cute and relaxing sandbox game, you grow gardens from your dreams with no stress.
Garden In! is made by an Italian studio Dramatic Iceberg. The game is the studio’s first commercial video game title. The game will be released by Bonus Stage Publishing on PC and Nintendo Switch in early 2023. The game was featured in Wholesome Games and Guerrilla Collective in June 2022.
The game starts in one room in which you are tasked to decorate to your liking. Your room is basically a perfect little sandbox in which you can move furniture around, paint the environment, and most importantly: grow plants. A lot of plants.
At first, you have a few seeds available, you can plant them in soil, water, and rocks, and you have a few pots to choose from. But as you advance, combine different seeds and try out different growing conditions, your seed library will grow and grow, until you are the most advanced horticulturist in the world. You also unlock new rooms and areas by playing the game further.
