Gardens is a video game studio founded by Chris Bell.a creative person who has worked on popular games like What Remains of Edith Finch and Journey, along with a dozen other people who also have a great track record. We knew there was a team, but we knew absolutely nothing about the game they were working on… Until today.
Chris Bell has revealed the first details about the title, which will be a role-playing game; “A constantly evolving multiplayer PvP (competitive) and PvE (co-op) fantasy adventure.“. What’s striking is that Bell is pointing out that we’ll be seeing ideas that were already present in his previous games, such as Sky: Children of the Light and Journey, in which cooperation between players will be key, as will “betrayal” between them. The creative assures us that we have a “New Cooperative” in front of us.
The Gardens project is very ambitious and has confirmed total $31 million funded by heavyweights in the video game industry such as Jack Tretton (formerly of Sony), Ben Feder (formerly of Take-Two and Tencent), Julien Merceron (CEO of Bandai Namco) and Nate Mitchell (co-founder of Oculus), among others.
Gardens, a studio full of talent
It only takes a look at the list of members that make up the Gardens studio to make us really want to know more about the game. The most famous visible face is the face Chris Bell (Journey, What Remains of Edith Finch and Skye: Children of the Light)co-founder, president and creative director of a team that boasts one thing if it has very experienced creatives.
