In Garden of the Sea the player explores their creativity, going on relaxing adventures discovering the different environments. Decorate your home, go fishing in your boat, pet and feed the animals and see your plants grow.

Music adjusting to gameplay in real-time

The game uses the Reactional Music Engine for music and sounds. Garden of the Sea is in fact the first game in the world implementing it. Much of the soundtrack is generated and performed live in the game using software instruments.

When the player performs certain actions they are also directly controlling and playing an instrument. The game plays musical tracks in different tonalities and seamlessly adjusts depending on the context in the game, and also to create a kind of musical puzzle, among other things.

PlayStation VR2 launches on February 22nd 2023.
