The desire to give our user a few moments of tranquility and beauty remained our guiding principle.
Brno, Czech Rep. (PRWEB UK) 14 November 2012
Available today, the app Inner Garden by Dustflake is a creative playground that allows casual smartphone users as well as garden enthusiasts to create and share garden environments. Gardens can be built in diverse styles, from flower gardens to park landscapes, allowing the users to express their ideas, personality and taste. Like real-world gardening, the app aims to promote imagination, creativity and relaxation through the use of realistically portrayed plants and stylish architecture. Gardens can be shared via social networks and e-mail.
Inner Garden is essentially a diorama-like building set. Surfaces (grass, water) are painted with a finger on the touchscreen while items (such as trees or buildings) are placed and moved using tap gestures. All art is hand-painted in a detailed, realistic style inspired by the great 19th century landscape painters. A full undo history is available to allow for frustration-free experimentation. Like a traditional construction set, the toy contains no locked items, assignments or scoring mechanics, allowing the users to relax and create without any pressure or limitations. Complemented with peaceful acoustic music, Inner Garden can be also used as a relaxation app. It works well on Android devices of all screen sizes, from small phones to large tablets.
"A garden, however small, is to us a place of beauty and peace where you can spend a few quiet moments that revive your soul. This was the bottom line for us throughout the 20 months of the app development - whether we dealt with the questions of art style, user interaction, technical solutions or even monetization, the desire to give our user a few moments of tranquility and beauty remained our guiding principle."
-Petr Mores, Inner Garden artist
Inner Garden is free, but the users wishing to expand the scope of the base app (containing a full moderate-climate art set) can purchase themed art packs from Google Play, such as Classic Garden (EUR 4.70) or Desert Garden (EUR 2.90). The app is available worldwide. New art packs will be released each month. The planned art packs include Winter Garden, Tropical Garden, Japanese Garden, Garden Architecture and more.
