Explore the Pardis gardens of 18th century Iran in Ban-na. Ban-na, or “mason”, tells the story of a young builder tasked with designing a pardis garden fit for the late general and personal friend of the Khan.
With sights and sounds inspired from classical Persian and Iranian history, Ban-na takes you inside a fictionalized recreation of building a pardis garden from the inside.
Ban-na is a work of fiction, and tells a story of life and forbidden love as it would have been – themes and experiences that are rooted in recorded history, and remain relevant today.

Really nice story! but you should add a skip button for the writting, it was too slow


Graphics and music were very good, premise is interesting, but the text speed was extremely slow. I hope in the future you'll add an option to increase it. :) Well done!


Beautifull game!


Generally I really liked this: it's a good story, I thought that the historic representation was very good, the music was nice and the art is excellent. It suffered a little from the lack of gameplay, and I was sort of struggling to keep focused on the slow text: more interactivity, shorter text units, maybe highlighting speaking characters and indicating better who was speaking, would have helped. It's the sort of game where you could easily add some path choices in the dialogues too which would have been a good way to add some gameplay: give the player the opportunity to add a bit more character to the Student for example. But I was very glad to see it overall and the information aspects were very interesting. Good work :)


thanks a lot for your comment, yes we agree that there is a lack of gameplay and we plan to add more characters such as the workers around the garden and add more puzzles as gameplay content and the suggestion on the text is spot on that would make it really better thank you


I like the music and the art, it's an interesting story.

However, text speed is very low.
