Description

Garden Paws is a relaxing role-playing game that doesn't limit your play style. Create your perfect simulation, whether you want to spend your days farming, exploring, fishing, questing or fighting.

In Garden Paws you have inherited your grandparents farm as they set off to travel the world. Aid Frank and Mayor Wilson in building up the town so it may reach its full potential.

In order to expand your home, and build up the nearby town, you're going to need coins. What better way to earn those coins than by running a shop! Explore the islands and caves collecting everything from poop to flowers to sell to the local villagers. Once you have some seeds you can dive into Farming, or many of the other activities on the islands including, Crafting, Fishing, Mining and Questing.

Once you have some spare coin talk to Frank to commission new buildings in town, with each building bringing unique Upgrades, Shops, Quests and even New Areas to explore, you'll have plenty to keep you busy!

History

Garden Paws is a passion project by Daniel Snd and Kristina Vandale. The project was born as the couple set out to make a game they would like to play together, pulling from the thousands of hours they spent playing games in this genre.

After a month of development the game was sent out to a select group of 20 alpha testers and with the initial feedback they saw they were in the right track. Even with a small demo with a fraction of the planned features the testers were hooked and most played for over 10 hours in a single week.

With the desire to build a bigger community to gather feedback and help the game grow, the team started working towards releasing a Kickstarter campaign, launching a successful campaign on August 9th 2018.

Since then the game was released on Steam December 2018 and received countless updates with more content, going far beyond what was originally planned.

After a couple of days, harvest your crops and then cook them up or wrap them in a bouquet to sell in your shop.
