August 3, 2016 - Independent game publisher Fruitbat Factory is proud to announce that the mystery visual novel Miniature Garden is headed for Steam and other distributors in English for the first time. Developed by Muzintou, Miniature Garden tells the story of five students trapped at school on the night of a festival. Korie Riko from Lump of Sugar is behind Miniature Garden’s art, and the game boasts a great lineup or famous voice actors.
In the woods not far from the city lies a school called the 'Miniature Garden.' In keeping with the school's name, an original 'Miniature Festival' is held there every three years.
There’s a rumor that an unnatural death will befall someone on the night of the festival. This year, as the sun sets, Yasunari and four other students find themselves trapped alone in the school on the night of the festival.
Is it just a mistake, or could the rumors actually be true?

“Miniature Garden has singularly amazing staff behind it. The art should make fans of Japanese visual novels feel right at home, and an all-stars cast of voice actors has been gathered for the game - they have so many main roles in anime and games that it was a challenge to choose only a few to mention.” adds Jakke Elonen, Project Lead.
