A Good solid puzzle with its fabulous history. https://youtu.be/aITbGqjGVsI

A Charming short game with a good soundtrack to relax. It Does not require any effort in passing.

Nice Game with sometimes slightly heavier, but always fair, Puzzles. The Linux Translation is impeccable. Whether 2 to 3 hours of Play is worth the €153, everyone has to decide for themselves. I don't regret buying though.

Very Nice game Nice picture, soft ambient on the background. Not too overmatched puzzles (except couples, maybe), which is especially interesting-they are space-time! The Game is an hour and a half, but still good. As usual in these games the end is a little sad.

Great Game! The Extent, sometimes rated as too low, is just right for me and without Spicking It takes quite several Hours (c.4-5h). The Puzzles are consistently logically constructed and one or the other hard Nut is there. Atmosphere, Audio visual and Style are very appealing to me and somehow unique. There are not many Games of this Style and those who do not need an 80h Range will entertain in a dreamlike ambience.

The Gardens Between is a short but emotionally touching Puzzle Leglady. The Puzzles are usually not very difficult, but since these can only be solved via the Timeline, the Approach is definitely very interesting. Due to the Art-style and especially the sound design as well as the music, however, it becomes clear that The Gardens Between appeals to an emotional Level. By Living through the Memory of the two Characters, a nostalgic Charm emerges that carries over to the Player and recalls one's own Childhood. The Price of €176 may be set slightly high, but it's still worth an Experience. And what, after all, are the Sales for?!

Product received for free With just under 2 Hours Of play, "The Gardens Between" is quite short and therefore ideal for a leisurely and relaxed Evening. Because the incredibly simple and yet very clever Game Design needs here and there is a little bit Of Gekpog But at no point is really difficult. The Whole thing works very intuitively and can do without a Line of Text. This creates a pleasant flow Of Games, which is accompanied by the wonderful Design and the slowly evolving "Story." (It's not a real Story, but rather that you start to realize what the Whole thing is about.) Conclusion: If you're looking for a real gameplay or Puzzle challenge, you're wrong here. Anyone who wants to relax for 2 Hours can access here without completely turning off the Brain or just playing a Walking Simulator here. Recommended From the Heart.
