Garden Story Sprouts onto Switch and Steam This Summer

Concord questing in Garden Story

The grapevine is in danger! In comes the Guardian of Spring Hamlet, Concord the Grape, to save the day! Your journey begins in Garden Story when it releases sometime this summer!

Watch this grape trailer below:

Concord travels around the island Grove, from towns like Spring Hamlet, Autumn Town, Winter Glade and Summer Bar. Use a variety of tools to protect the residents from the impending doom known as the Rot.

For more details, publisher Rose City Games describes Garden Story:

Set off on an adventure as the newly-appointed Guardian of Spring Hamlet, a young grape named Concord, and defend the island from an entity known as Rot. Help the delightful denizens of Spring Hamlet, Autumn Town, Winter Glade, and Summer Bar each day. Roots blocking a path? Oozes preventing townsfolk from crossing the bridge? Granny Smith needs more branches? Whatever the task, Concord’s the grape for the job!

Experiment with multi-purpose Tools to gather resources, grow gardens, and fight the Rot. Wield the Pick to either harvest twigs, sap and pebbles needed for upgrades, or as a tiny sword for combat. Glide across frozen terrain on Ice Skates. Fish with the Dowsing Rod to pull shells out of the waters of Summer Bar, or remove armor from enemies. Take out Concord’s Toolbox to build structures like Benches to pass the time, or Pacifying Bells to temporarily turn foes into friends. Master each Tool so Concord can conquer dungeons and battle breathtaking bosses.

Between adventures, take the time to talk to other Greenlings living in The Grove. Who knows? Concord just might unlock a cherished Memory along the way. More than 48 Memories hidden throughout the world empower the young Guardian, granting them stat boosts like extra Health, Run Speed, Luck, and more.

Relax in a rustic world rendered in wholesome pixel art. Settle into the cozy island with a score incorporating warm acoustic instruments and catchy synth elements. Grow as a Guardian each day and fight the foes threatening the peace, but never forget the true goal: cultivating love and confidence wherever Concord goes.

Garden City releases for Nintendo Switch and Steam for Windows PC and MacOS. Stay tuned to RPGFan as we learn more!
