Gravity Garden is a science fiction themed farming simulation. You're in charge of your own private island, floating through an alien space full of bizarre plants and colorful critters. This is an open-world simulation of plants that live and grow according to the conditions in their environment. Plant your garden in any soil - no preset plots or rigid, square fields. It's a sandbox experience where you are free to do as you please. Work towards a series of increasingly difficult achievements or simply grow a beautiful garden and admire the view - it's up to you.
