The narrative at the heart of this game is about self-love and identity and is very personal to me. As an immigrant to the United States and someone who has dealt with my sense of identity in many ways, I’ve always wanted to explore such topics in a game. The protagonist in this game is gay and dark-skinned; he’s the kind of character I would have liked to see in the games I played as a kid. In Gardener, we wanted to tell a story using a form of presentation that would bring joy to the players.
The story isn’t the only part of the game that you will enjoy; The gameplay is designed to put you in a calming, flow state. On the surface, this is a simple game where you jump from leaf to leaf and then attack flowers with a magical shot that brings out more leaves and propels you up. Dive a little deeper into the game and you will find an incredible variety of game mechanics with new obstacles in each level. Unlike a lot of platformers released these days, we wanted this game to be relatively easy to learn and complete, but still offer rewards for those able to achieve higher levels of gaming skill. If you’re a completer, find the hidden lovebirds on each tower or earn three stars on each challenge level! If you’re only here for the story, you can turn on assist mode if you get stuck on a level.
The gardener and the wild vines is an affair of the heart and I hope that playing this game brings you as much comfort and pleasure as it brought me in developing it. The gardener and the wild vines
