About

Blueberry Garden is a short experimental game about curiosity and exploration. You take on the role of a creature investigating a mysterious world to find out what is going on there. It’s probably not very much like anything you’ve played before but I hope you will find it enjoyable!

Buy

Get it on Steam – only $5!

There is a demo version there too, so that you can make sure the game runs on your computer. The demo got no ending or goal though so don’t play it too much please, that would only ruin the experience I think.

If you don’t have Steam you can download a demo here.

What people have said about it

“Erik’s Blueberry Garden is a playground of exploration and oddities. It’s beautifully calming yet fast-paced. It’s like every platformer you’ve ever experienced yet nothing like anything you’ve ever played. Most importantly, Blueberry Garden is definitely worthy of the prize bestowed upon it.” — Michael Rose, IndieGames.com

Blueberry Garden was so beautiful I almost wanted to put it in a ribbon-wrapped box with a kitten and cry a little. And, it felt, a perfect coda to the week – showing the entire spread of games on offer – from the brash and brutal stimulations of the big boys, to a dainty little piece of indy magic.”  — Bobbie Johnson, guardian.co.uk

To return to my original comment, Blueberry Garden is your typical indie game, but in the best sense possible. It’s original and innovative whilst taking the finest parts of a well-tread genre and expanding them to show what can still be done to keep it fresh and involving.” — Rowan Davies, The Dead Pixel Post

“The first thing that striked me about BG was the sense of wonder i felt while walking in the garden. I felt like the world was without borders, and without real barriers. The more fruits i found, the more i was looking for more of them.” — Alessandro Toffoli

“A brilliant game concept that is executed with precision and presented beautifully. Intertwines graphics, sound and gameplay and evokes the feeling that the game world is truly alive.” — Swedish Game Awards Jury

“Blueberry Garden is a one-of-a-kind experience that you shouldn’t pass up. With multiple attempts, the game offers a few hours of excellent and challenging problem-solving adventuring. Despite its short length, the magically evolving garden and joyous drive for exploration it instills makes this game worth every cent of its incredibly affordable $5 price tag.” — Nathan Meunier, GreenPixels

“Blueberry Garden is a one-of-a-kind experience and a star of the indie gaming community. It preserves some of gaming’s most cherished elements — exploration, creativity, and discovery — and does so with a subtle artistic style we so rarely see in games today.” — John Bardinelli, JayIsGames

  1. May I just say what a relief to discover an individual who genuinely
    knows what they’re discussing on the internet.

    You actually understand how to bring a problem to light and make it important.

    More and more people really need to check this out and understand this side of your story.
    I can’t believe you’re not more popular because you
    definitely have the gift.


  2. Have you ever considered writing an e-book or guest authoring on other websites?
    I have a blog based upon on the same subjects you discuss and would love to have you share some stories/information. I know
    my viewers would value your work. If you are even remotely interested,
    feel free to send me an email.

    Yesterday, while I was at work, my cousin stole my apple ipad and tested to see if it can survive a
    25 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is
    now destroyed and she has 83 views. I know this is totally
    off topic but I had to share it with someone!


  4. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point.
    You clearly know what youre talking about, why waste your intelligence on just posting videos to your weblog when you could be giving
    us something informative to read?

  14. [...] Blueberry Garden is a game where you get to be a parrot with ball-hands and a featherless pimp hat. So, right off the bat, I was buckling up for what promised to be the metaphysical ride of my life.  The unfortunate thing is, that’s what I thought. Near the middle and end of the game, there was more internal whining and more external sighing. [...]


  15. Thanks for a great game, Erik! Are you planning on releasing another game soon?

  16. ono Says:

    I purchased this game for my son, who enjoys it. The only serious flaw I see is that it lacks an option to “save” and “continue”, so that the game encourages hour-long sessions.
    I find it sad to have to convince my son to stop playing because I know he will have to start from the beginning next time. For this reason, I may consider uninstalling it and I cannot unconditionally recommend it to others.
    Perhaps there might be an update with a “save” and “continue” option to encourage multiple gaming sessions?
    Thank you

    • eriksvedang Says:

      Hello,

      Yes it’s a serious flaw of the game, sorry about that. I failed to make it work properly when I made the game because I wasn’t a very good programmer. Now I’m actually working on an update and hopefully I will have the skills to properly add a save and continue feature to the game.

      Thanks for stopping by,
      Erik

      • ono Says:

        Thanks much for answering, and so encouragingly as well. I will uninstall and wait for an update then! Hope things go well, I look forward to pleasant things such as this which I can recommend to parents of younger children. Keep us posted!

    Dear Blueberry supporter,

    My name is Kerry and I am the representative of the G-forums.net, a video game forum which owning 20,000 visitors per day. G-forums is a rapidly developing video games forum with great potential. I’m contacting you because recently we are doing some code and license giveaway activities and you might interest in it.

    I’ve pay close attention to your game for a long time and just wondering could you give us several codes or licenses of Blueberry Garden so that we can do a contest on your game.

    If you give us the license or code, we should spare no efforts to promote your game on our site.

    I am looking forward to hearing from you.

    Best Regards
    Kerry

    Nice game and great animations.Really love that.Awesome

  34. Vicki Says:

    Hey there,

    Absolutely love the game. It’s simple and beautiful. I was watching a video of it on Youtube and was completely engrossed! Couldn’t take my eyes off it!

    Was curious as to what software you used to make it?

    Keep up the great work :)

    Vicki

  35. Rex Says:

    This game quickly became extremely frustrating. Next time, don’t put in a time limit, or don’t put in a goal.

    or just fix the damn collision detection and control system.


  36. [...] If you’re looking to get out of seeing another bizarre European indie film, get your gal this game instead. Designed by a Swede, this beautiful and quirky game reminds me more of an interactive art piece than a video game. Don’t be fooled: there is a goal in this game, not made evident by the above trailer.  If Ebert played this game he would give up his silly notion that video games are not an art form. Bobbie Johnson, from the UK Guardian, described this game as ” a dainty piece of indie magic”: “I almost wanted to put it in a ribbon-wrapped b… [...]
