Exciting news - in just under 5 hours The Garden Path Kickstarter will be going live!


There will be an early test demo build for anyone who want to give it a try, and look out for any bugs.

I'll also be streaming the demo on Twitch, talking about the game and taking any questions.


Hopefully see you there!

I'm about 50% happy with the way hills/cliffs look in the game.

While everything else seems quite rigid, the cliff art still seem a bit soupy.

I'm going to try making them visually more like staircases, so there's a visual reminder of their shape as your eye follows them down.

In case you missed The Garden Path at this year's Wholesome Direct, here's the footage!


A surprise treasure arrived - made by my Mum!

I think she was eager to make the game's first fan-art - I reckon she got it pretty spot on Ok hand

It'll be by my desk as I work on the game from now on.

Small heads up that if you have Discord we have a 'The Garden Path' server as a place you can chat and ask any questions you might have. It's growing slowly but surely.

Swing by if you'd like.


The visuals go through varying stages of presence depending on use, so as to keep the game-view uncluttered.

New silky smooth notification system I've been working on. Consolidates a number of information points throughout the game.

It's navigatable anytime using the D-Pad or Arrows Keys so long as you aren't using other UI elements.

The next is happening on June 12 at 1pm ET / 6pm BST. Can't wait! I hear there might be some gardening involved 🌿

I'll post some of my business work I'm particularly proud of from time to time, it helps bridge the silence -- I appreciate it's not why a lot of you follow me.

Enjoyed applying my free-time studies of environmental illustration to this one.
