Garden Life is a simulation game letting us design our own garden. The game was developed by stillalive studios (responsible for games such as the Bus Simulator series) and published by Nacon.


The gameplay of Garden Life is shown from the first-person perspective (FPP). The game lets us freely design our own garden.

The player can plant and water seeds, then care for the plants that grow from them. Not only do we have to regularly water them, but also meet their individual needs. Different plant species require different kinds of fertilizers as well as other forms of maintenance, such as pruning. Plants aren't the only things that make our garden beautiful. The player can decorate it with various ornaments, such as garden gnomes, which can be placed freely wherever we want.

After taking care of our garden, we can help our neighbors; this rewards us with new varieties of plants, additional decorations or useful tools to make our work easier.

Technical aspects

Garden Life boasts colorful, high-quality visuals. The game's artstyle is rather unusual; while the garden itself is very detailed, the gardening tools make use of cel-shading. The title features a procedural plant growth system, meaning each of our specimens grows realistically and uniquely from the others. The audio is just as pleasant as the visuals, being full of soothing sounds, such as birds singing and the wind blowing.
