Thanks to generous backers, The Garden Path will also now feature local multiplayer!

Bristol, UK, 20 August 2021 — Following a month-long campaign, solo-developer Louis Durrant AKA carrotcake’s Kickstarter for The Garden Path has concluded with huge success. Thanks to the enormously generous pledges from 1097 backers, the game is now able to be developed more in line with Durrant’s full, original vision. That’s not all though, The Garden Path will now feature local multiplayer so gardeners can revel in the joys of the garden together, and the slice-of-life sim will also now be launching on Nintendo Switch as well as PC and Linux!

Here’s the beautiful debut trailer for you: 

The initial funding goal of £20,000 / $27,242 (all USD totals are approximate)  was met after 24 days of the campaign, and was followed by the announcement of the Nintendo Switch and local multiplayer stretch goals at £25,000 / $34,041 and £30,000 / $40,849 respectively. Both stretch goals were much requested by the small but passionate community, and were emphatically funded during the remaining six days of the campaign. In total, 1097 backers from The Garden Path’s wonderful community pledged £30,474 / $41,483 to reach an extraordinary 152% funding.
Louis Durrant AKA carrotcake would like to express their deepest thanks to every single person who backed the game on Kickstarter, and all who have joined The Garden Path’s community.

About carrotcake:
Founded in Bristol, UK in 2016 by illustrator Louis Durrant, carrotcake previously developed beautiful European fable Crossing to the Cold Valley, and Kingdom Ka, an abstract retelling of the world’s oldest stories, prior to their ongoing work on The Garden Path. Durrant is a one-person development team, whose primary goal is to build spaces that people want to exist in, where they feel comfortable. With The Garden Path, that mantra can be seen in every facet of the game. Growing up watching the Moomins and Studio Ghibli films, Durrant credits both works as inspirations for The Garden Path.
