Full of loads of pieces of art, interactive areas, media, videos, and so much more, The Zium Garden is a complete museum that you don’t need to leave your home to see.
Everywhere you turn, this game has things to see – artwork, animations, and so much to discover. The various works of art have all been made by a bunch of different creators, all of whom are credited next to their works, just like a traditional museum. Make sure you explore completely, too, as there are many hidden places within the art and visuals as well, like secret places hiding videos about Saint Valentine, or artwork lining a hall.
I particularly love these wavy arm people, colorfully displaying their home dance on the side of the area, waving in the wind as it moves. Their bright, happy bodies make my day more joyous.
Climbing up into a giant, metal-looking fish and seeing the world from this height is brilliant. I love peering through the shaped metal and peering down at the flowers and the world below, flying high above the other exhibits.
You can find references to other games as, like this animation for Like Roots in the Soil. The character is displayed larger than life, animating their walk as they move.
Some of the exhibits can be picked up and chucked around, like this colorful controller and a bunch of cameras. You can take a look at the objects closely, seeing the detail in the modeling and work that went into them.
Others can be listened to, like this large portrait that comes to life, animating as a voice speaks to you.
These are just some of the exhibitions you can see inside The Zium Garden, and if that doesn’t at least tempt you into checking out the full experience, I am not sure what will. Enjoy a little tour of a digital world.
The Zium Garden is available for free on Itch.io.
