Atari Announces The UnderGarden, Coming This Fall

Yesterday, Atari announced the creation of a new “zen” casual game in the form of the UnderGarden, coming to Xbox Live Arcade, PlayStation Network, and PC (through download) sometime this Winter.

The game is a puzzle exploration title that challenges players with traveling through beautiful underground caverns that are filled with strange lifeforms, hidden areas and secrets, and of course, puzzles (of the physics-based variety).

The game world will come to life and evolve (along with the music) as players traverse more and more of the caverns. The game will offer local co-op gameplay, along with the traditional single-player experience. The UnderGarden will contain 20 different levels of exploration, each of which is said to give off an “emotional response,” says Atari.

The UnderGarden offers gamers a distinctive and alternative take on the puzzle genre,” says Jim Wilson, President of Atari, via a company press release. “With soothing music and eco-friendly elements,The UnderGarden will take players on an underwater journey that will relax and rejuvenate their minds.”

The UnderGarden will be released at the price of $9.99. We’ll be sure to bring you more news about the game as it becomes available.
