Fans of the beloved board game Takenoko can now experience the game in a whole new way! In partnership with Twin Sails Interactive and Blazing Griffin, Tilt Five has launched a holographic version, which is now available on Steam

Adapted from the acclaimed board game by Antione Bauza, the Tilt Five version features holographic gameplay where the gardener and the picky panda come to life with mind-blowing 3D graphics, right on your table!

Venture to the tranquil bamboo garden, where the players compete for the complicated task of caring for the Japanese Emperor's sacred–and greedy– panda. Only the gardener with the very best plots of bamboo will be able to appease the voracious appetite of this picky animal.

Plant a bamboo forest around the Emperor’s pond. Cultivate and irrigate your plots to grow all the types of bamboo the panda loves. Experience the plots rise and fall around the board, the water flow from the pond, and the weather rumble and rain directly in front of your very eyes.

Play Together at Home or Remote with Friends

Beat your rival gardeners, whether they are gathered around the table with you at home or playing remotely online. Takenoko - Tilt Five AR offers local and online multiplayer for all those eager gardeners, no matter where they might be! The game supports up to four players making it the perfect addition to your game night.
