From Press Release:

1st September, Amsterdam, Netherlands – Indie studio Noio (Kingdom & New Lands) is releasing their latest project Cloud Gardens on Xbox Series X / S and Xbox One today. The game is also leaving Steam Early Access with a hefty launch update (also included in the Xbox version).

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

“I’ve seen so much creativity from our community over the past year, it really blows my mind,” said Thomas van den Berg, Creator of Cloud Gardens. “Cloud Gardens has become what I hoped it’d be: a way for people to relax and express themselves at the same time. Thank you everyone!”
