I have to say I really liked this game, one that seems to achieve a charming sense of discovery and joy.

Most games would not see you floating an orb through sentient plant life to fetch a key. Bontanicula is not most games.Posted Apr 19, 2012 | 1:02 | 1,098 Views

Mark explores the enchanting world of Botanicula in this video review.
I logged in just to say great review. Nicely written, clear, enthusiastic, and detailed. Need more reviewers like this :)
>>i love all these new generation Weird artistic out of this world kind of side scrollers that have been coming up the past 2 years<< WHUT? it's not that weird - you see a lot of similar stuff from a lot of czech artists... for years!
i love all these new generation Weird artistic out of this world kind of side scrollers that have been coming up the past 2 years. i plan to get this on mac
looks interesting... its very abstract art that looks great but other that.....that is all got for it looks great but I would have to try it out first before i can say anything.
@Masenkoe You might also assume I have a computer that can handle something non-demanding. However in fact I have a computer that barley operates and functions to get on the internet, let alone play Chess or Solitaire, and certainly not Botanicula.
I love indie games. You don't hear anything about them and then suddenly they appear on XBLA and you can get them straight away! Better than waiting years for a AAA title any day.
Already preordered this on GOG. :D Amanita makes really fantastic stuff and the extra goodies from GOG make it totally worth getting. :)
bah i love games like this, but i never want to pay full price for something so short with zero replay value.
Great review Mark. Amanita's games are so wonderful. Point and Click isn't dead! And the Humble Bundle is amazing value. Get!
@erik2005 - it might take a while, but I'd be extremely surprised if it didn't get ported after the success Amanita had with Machinarium.
http://www.humblebundle.com/ You can get the game, along with the Machinarium and a few others.
This game is currently part of the Humble Indie Bundle. You should look this up. It is a pay what you want, for charity, for a collection of games. The games can be added on Steam and work on Windows, Mac, Linux as far as I know.
