By - | Views: 21,850

Developer inDirection Games announced their cute looking gardening game Horticular is now set to arrive on July 11th. Here you are summoned by a bunch of mysterious gnomes, given the task of breathing new life into a long-lost garden, abandoned by its previous caretaker.

"Enter a magical world where you build up and expand a lush garden at your own pace. In your journey, you attract adorable animals to inhabit every corner; uncover helpful upgrades; and assist quirky characters for rewards and story development—all while juggling decay and fending off corruption sent by your nemesis!"

Their plans for the full release include:

  • Complete Story: Launching straight to 1.0 - Through the course of the game you will receive letters from The Council, a collection of garden gnomes that will guide the player and allow them to defeat a mysterious entity known only as The Nemesis.
  • Varied Game Modes: Alongside the main story mode the game will feature a story mode with 3 different difficulty balance settings as well as a storyless sandbox mode with a further 3 play styles such as Storyless, Peaceful and Creative.
  • Controller Support: Full controller support means that you can sit back, relax, and experience the game from start to finish without needing to touch your keyboard and mouse - perfect for those lazy TV days. This means it also plays great with the Steam Deck!
  • Twitch Integration: Streamers and content creators can now incorporate their community into their Horticular gameplay like never before. Viewers will be able to use Bits to add their name to the naming pool for all incoming creatures and Keepers to the garden, as well as sending mail for the streamer to receive in-game.
  • Mod Support: Horticular will feature full mod support on launch via an included editor, allowing the community to contribute their own additions to the game. Steam Workshop is also fully integrated, meaning installing mods will be quick and easy.

You can follow it on Steam. It will have Native Linux support.

I played the demo for this last year (I think? Or the year before) and it was pretty fun. Might be worth a look.
