FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q: What type of game is this?
A: Evergarden is an “evergreen” puzzle game merged with a narrative adventure.
Q: What do you mean by “narrative adventure”?
A: Beyond the garden puzzle board, there lies a mysterious forest environment to explore, with its own puzzles and progression. You’ll use the stones that you earn on the puzzle board to solve puzzles, and unlock new “songs” which add interesting new strategies to the puzzle board.
Q: How long is the game?
A: The core puzzle game is “evergreen”, which means you can play it repeatedly and keep mastering it forever. The narrative adventure portion will take most players 4-8 hours to explore, and there is a daily challenge with a new procedural puzzle to unlock every day.

Ratings and Reviews
There’s minimalism and then there’s this.
It’s a beautiful and interesting game, but the lack of any instruction or guidance is frustrating and definitely not relaxing. Even just a ‘help’ section hidden on the menu would be nice, or maybe a hint after playing the first level 8 times without progress. These additions would at least have given me hope that I hadn’t spent 6 dollars on a single level in a hex mini game.
More about the gameplay for anyone interested: To progress to new content, you have to copy the pattern displayed in a thought bubble. The types of plants you need to fulfill the pattern are displayed on a hex board filled with a rotating diagram of the hex pattern needed with 2D silhouettes denoting the types of plants necessary. The actual game board does not rotate and all plants are three dimensional shapes. It’s difficult to get perspective on where the pattern is possible on the actual game board as a result.
Developer Response ,
Thanks for this feedback! The first update for the game will contain a feature where you can make the pattern stop rotating. We're also considering adding additional tutorial/help elements for players who like a bit more guidance.
This may be my favorite game ever! I love puzzle and strategy games, but it’s so hard to find games that hold my attention and make me want to keep playing. After the first few times playing, this absolutely gorgeous game had me completely hooked, and although I’ve played to the end, I’m still hooked! The puzzle aspect mixed of the game with the strategy of the map was perfect. The final scene in the map was so moving. Having read the story behind the game in TouchArcade, and that the game was made to honor the creators’ mother (my own father passed away unexpectedly 2 months ago), it really touched me, and I’ll have to admit, I teared up at the end. I could go on and on about this game, I highly recommend it.
Mysterious and lovely
I appreciate the lack of hand-holding. So many games have tutorials that walk you through every little detail; it can feel like being a kindergartener. Evergarden dropped me into its puzzle and let me work out the rules myself, which became part of the fun. There’s a mysterious feeling to this game, as though it’s a single piece of some larger world.
The gameplay is reminiscent of Triple Town (or 2048/Threes), combining small-valued flowers into bigger ones, but the mechanism is different. And then there’s a larger matching game overlaying that, and I’ve just gotten to some mini-games that unlock new powers and reveal bits of what may be a story...
Highly recommended if you enjoy thoughtful puzzles and tranquil moods.
