'Cloud Gardens' Delays Nintendo Switch Launch Until Further Notice

by Rainier on May 10, 2022 @ 9:08 a.m. PDT

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

Cloud Gardens is a relaxing little game about overgrowing the ruins at the end of the world.

By planting the right seeds in the right places, and learning how to make them thrive, they’re able to create small overgrown dioramas of brutality and beauty, salvaging and re-purposing hundreds of discarded objects to create unique structures for nature to reclaim.

Players can dive into a relaxing sandbox mode with no goals, where they are simply left to delight in their own creativity and create beautiful scenes, or take on a “campaign” of six chapters, where the task is to strike a balance between nature and the manufactured by covering each scene with salvaged objects and lush vegetation.

This is a chill game where the player is allowed to delight in their own creativity. The player's task is to completely cover the scene in plants. As you overgrow the objects, a meter fills to show your progress. You are given objects to expand the scene. These objects contribute energy to the growing of plants, but you will also have to cover them in foliage to complete the stage, striking a balance between nature and the manufactured.

Due to a minor backend issue, Coatsink and Noio are sorry to announce that their chill title about using the power of nature to reclaim beautiful lo-fi scenes of urban decay, Cloud Gardens, will be delayed on Nintendo Switch.

The game was previously set to launch on 12th May 2022, but due to this minor setback it needs a bit more time to grow.

Unfortunately a new release date can’t be announced just yet, so please stay tuned for more information which will be shared soon!

Key Features:

  • Solve organic puzzles in a serene 3D space.
  • Create to your heart’s content in creative mode.
  • Unlock an enormous catalogue of objects and plantlife.
  • Share your creations.
  • Featuring generative soundscapes by Amos Roddy, composer of Kingdom.

Currently available for Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and PC (Steam), Cloud Gardens is coming to Nintendo Switch for £13.99 / $17.99 USD / €14.99 / ¥1840 SRP.
