i usually don't play these types of exploration games but i just spent like a whole 10 minutes running around in this game...it's so dream-like and calming :) <3
Garden of Calm
A downloadable game for Windows and macOS
Hiya! this is little game I made for "self-care jam": a fun, low-stress game jam that ran over a week.
Chill out and wander around a little garden~ There's no final objective or a focus on mechanics - I just wanted to making something cute, fun and calming.
I hope you enjoy my little game and please feel free to give any feedback - though keep in mind it was just a quick little project, nothing fancy =)
Music is The Path of the Wind by Joe Hisaishi (from My Neighbour Totoro)

This is soooo cute and sweet!
My first favorite discovery is the cute swirly snail! I am curious to know if it is moving to anywhere in particular? (Since I saw that it is moving by a veeeerrrry tiny amount as I watched, lol!)
And then, I liked seeing the floating butterfly at the back of the hose, which I thought was a mysterious emblem of some sort until I made more sense of its shape. c:
The colours & feel of the garden are lovely. The surprise at the top of the tree was nice and just right for the purpose of the game, I like how you saw the sign after you'd entered the inviting space.
I knew it! While I was walking, I kept thinking, "I know this music..." Now I know it was from My Neighbor Totoro. Such fitting music.
I really loved the graphics. Very beautiful and relaxing. I loved the little Remember to take care of yourself poster in the little bedroom. Nice work :)
Awww, thank you so much for the lovely comment! I knew I wanted to choose some light-hearted, childish music and thought something from My Neighbour Totoro would be perfect :3
Thanks for playing! <3
