A studio formed by incredible developers of renowned games.
Gardens is a new developer founded by Chris Bell and Stephen Bell, together with a brilliant group of developers, with the goal of growing a studio that is transparent, sustainable, inclusive, and uplifting.
Gardens’ team includes developers who have worked on titles like Journey, Spider-Man, Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Telltale Games’ The Walking Dead and The Wolf Among Us. The team’s main goal is to make dynamic online games that generate meaningful multiplayer experiences and relationships among players all around the world.
A different kind of developer
“With Gardens, we wanted to create a studio that cares as much about the health, happiness, and wellbeing of its team members as we do the craftsmanship of the games we create together,” said Chris Bell, Gardens’ co-founder.
“Our top priority is making sure our teammates enjoy their lives and are given the tools and resources to grow while creating compelling, well-crafted, thoughtful games that cultivate novel shared experiences between players online,” he added.
Gardens is named after the sort of environment the team wishes to develop. Gardens is a completely remote studio with offices in Portland and Los Angeles. These vibrant, artistically produced worlds will be designed to enable rich multiplayer interactions while relying on community support to succeed.
Their games aim to foster long-lasting friendships, encouraging participants to be thoughtful of one another and the world they share. The next Gardens game, which has yet to be named, draws on the unique methods in which team members have previously built shared online experiences, with users colliding in a strange and fascinating environment.
