The end of the game may be the end of being neighbors, but it doesn’t mean the end of being friends. Arina and Frendt evolve over time together, from kiddie pools to exploring drains. My friends and I preferred to explore the local cemetery, which seems bleak in retrospect. Anyway, they will keep evolving as they are apart, and in my mind they remain friends through the trials of tribulations of growing up and into adulthood.
So much of what makes The Gardens Between so great needs to be experienced. Trying to explain it more simply won’t help you get it. Instead, you should just go play The Gardens Between without giving it a second thought.
A bright, moving, and at times utterly fantastic puzzling adventure.
