Shu’s Garden is an all-ages videogame by Colin Sanders and Jason RT Bond. As Shu, a space-cactus of the bouncy persuasion, you spring from planet to planet, spreading plant life and finding new friends. Create a forest! Enjoy a splash in a pond! Play tag with a bee! Make weird hybrid plants! Launch a giraffe into orbit! Shu’s Garden is a fully open playground with no hard goals, scores or missions. Just kick back, explore and experiment in this space-garden full of friends, foliage, and fun.
Shu’s Garden is created by Colin Sanders (design, sound, music) & Jason RT Bond (design, art, animation), but important contributions were made by Ami Matsuda (voice, Japanese translation), Mike Bond (grass) and Ornella Bertrand (French translation).
