Plant, grow, and share your own lush little landscapes in Cloud Gardens, a humble, casual indie game from developer Noio.

Harness the power of nature as it slowly crawls its way back to prominence in abandoned, urbanized environments. Create small little gardens using a mix of natural and man-made objects, each of them a unique diorama of something special. There is no true goal in Cloud Gardens except to relax and let your creativity fly, or you can try the game's small story mode, where you must cover all man-made structures with a limited amount of foliage. Part light puzzle game, part sandbox toy, Cloud Gardens hopes you let your imagination run wild while you play it. 

Cloud Gardens is available for the PC, Mac, Xbox One, and Xbox Series S and X systems.

Developer Quote

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.

Cloud Gardens hovers somewhere in between a sandbox toy and a game with challenges. Partly a gardening simulator, partly a dystopian landscape builder, and partly a puzzle game that is both satisfying and without frustration. It is a relaxing experience that takes you from one scene to the next while encouraging creativity and coming up with your own solutions.

This is a chill game where the primary goal is to delight in your own creativity. Players can download looping videos of their completed dioramas and share them with other gardeners from across the internet, and our Discord server has a lively community of gardeners.
