Cloud Gardens

Latest project from the creator of Kingdom & New Lands ​​​​​​​

18th August, Amsterdam, Netherlands – Indie developer Noio (Kingdom & New Lands) announced today that Cloud Gardens, their relaxing game about reclaiming abandoned wastelands that’s been making waves on PC, will be coming to Xbox Series X / S and Xbox One on 1st September. Cloud Gardens will launch out of Steam Early Access on the same day with a massive launch date that is also included in the console versions of the game. 

In Cloud Gardens, players must harness the power of nature to overgrow lo-fi scenes of urban decay and manufactured landscapes. 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.
