Free Demo For Cozy Adventure/RPG Game Garden Story Now Available

Well, VIZ Media and developers Rose City Games have had quite the busy year. Alongside the release of The World Next Door and the announcement of Cat Lady and the praise it’s gained from its first previews, now they also have Garden Story in the works as well. A combination of social simulations and adventure/RPG games that draws inspiration from the likes of Stardew Valley, Animal Crossing, and top-down Zelda games, Garden Story certainly seems like a charming title, and now players can check it out for themselves thanks to a free demo, available as of today.

Playing as a grape named Concord that has been newly appointed as the village guardian, players will be able to assist their neighbors in the Grove, help improve the town, go fishing, and also battle the terrifying Rot strangling everything, so no biggie. If you want a peak at the game’s variety, the trailer below accompanying the demo announcement shows off what you can do in Autumn Town, the region you’ll get to explore. Garden Story’s free demo will be available from now until December 21 – the end of Autumn, appropriately enough – so make sure to check it out on Steam ASAP.
