Harness the power of nature to overgrow dioramas of urban decay in meditative sandbox experience
Gateshead, United Kingdom – April 21st, 2022 – Coatsink and Noio are extremely excited to announce that their chill title about using the power of nature to reclaim beautiful lo-fi scenes of urban decay, Cloud Gardens, is on its way to Nintendo Switch. The game will be released for Switch on 12th May 2022 and priced at £13.99 / $17.99 USD / €14.99 / ¥1840 SRP.
In this meditative title that embraces your creativity, create small plant-covered dioramas of brutalism and beauty by planting seeds, repurposing hundreds of discarded objects and creating unique structures for nature to reclaim.
Dive into a relaxing sandbox mode with no goals, or take on a multi-chapter campaign where the task is to strike a balance between the natural and the manufactured. Adding objects will encourage lush vegetation to grow, but each object must be covered in foliage in order to proceed.
Cloud Gardens hovers somewhere in between a sandbox toy and a game with challenges. Partly a gardening simulator, partly a dystopian landscape builder, and partly a puzzle game that is both satisfying and without frustration. It is a relaxing experience that takes you from one scene to the next while encouraging creativity and coming up with your own solutions.
