Tons of new items and QOL updates!

This update is a pretty exciting one as we've included quite a few epic features. Our favourite being the Auto Deposit feature which will allow you to deposit items into a chest without opening it. Another huge QOL update are the improvements to the crafting system. Now you can click an item and craft it's prerequisites without switch tabs.

Auto Deposit feels so satisfying!

We apologize if we missed listing any new items or bug fixes. Other news, the Switch version is currently being worked on and we appreciate your patience as we get it to the best state we can. The Steam Workshop update is coming along way faster than we initially projected, we will have more news on that soon. If you would like to join the beta workshop we have more news on that in our discord.

There were also many many tweaks made to improve performance in this update, our initial feedback has shown huge leaps in performance. If you are experiencing problems though we have found reinstalling the game through steam and verifying game files fixes many. If you come across any bugs please let us know through steam discussions, or discord. Thank you!

Fruit Trees and Berry Bushes!

Fruit Trees!

Apples, Oranges, Lemons, Cherries, oh my! There are 4 fruit trees that can be found around Florens and the nearby islands. Each season there will be a new tree type in the wilds, if you don't want to wait for the wild fruit trees you can plant your own. Each tree even has a rare chance to drop seeds when being harvested.

 These new fruits can be used in one of the many new cooking recipes at the cooking station or oven. There's more! You can now find Blueberry Bushes in the wild as well!

Blueberries can be used to craft a variety of items!

Potion Paws Crossover Items 

A rainbow dragon riding a Cat Ghost, what next!?

We're happy to say we've added the Potion Paws crossover items. We added even more items then we originally set out to add. There are 26 furniture items to decorate with! You may even find the Cat Ghost mount lurking in a cave that you can befriend with some stardust!  You can tame as many of these as you'd like.

If you own Potion Paws in the same Steam library as Garden Paws you'll receive in-game mail containing the Mysterious Potion Table blueprint. Once you've crafted this workbench you'll unlock the rest of the Potion Paws crossover items.

Custom Painting and Carpets

We've added two new items that can be painted with the wall paintbrushes. This will open up over 60 painting variations and 60+ carpet styles. This upgrade can be purchased from Roman after you've unlocked the Painting Station.

So many options to choose from!

Building System Update!

The Building System received a huge improvement in this update. When placing a piece, using the hammer or the item shifter there is now an option for opening a "Selector". When in selector mode your mouse is visible and you can mouse over different buttons on the UI to select what socket or building piece you want to interact with.

Using the Selector to place foundations exactly where you want them.

This makes it easier to build faster and make less mistakes. It also makes mistakes easier to fix since with the new selector menu you can hammer out even the hard to select things like the sprinklers.

Selecting items with the item shifter is a breeze now!

Pamela's Trading Center

Pamela has lovely items to trade with you

Pamela's Trading Center has finally opened its doors to the people of Florens. You can find the big tree trunk on Ferret Island. Inside you will find Pamela the Unicorn. Pamela doesn't use coins and instead prefers trading items for their wares.

What's next for Garden Paws?

We've got big plans for Garden Paws including adding more levels to the Dungeon, and even a huge new island to explore and more! We welcome you to join our discord or follow our twitter for spoilers as we work on them.

Even more challenges will be coming to the Dungeon soon! (Gif thanks to April on the Discord)

We originally set out to release Garden Paws on the Switch this December, but have to ask the community to wait a bit longer so we can get the game to be the best it can be without rushing. We hope you understand we are working our hardest to get the game to the Switch without cutting content we would love to see in Garden Paws.
