Excerpt: "So, what have you been playing lately?" " Botanicula ." "Oh, I've never heard of that. What kind of game is it?" "It's a point-and-click where you... um... there's... trees... seeds... Uh, chickens... hallucinations... I think spider monsters... An anthropomorphic peanut...
Excerpt: As the title suggests, Botanicula is firmly rooted in nature and is as visually green and verdant as you might imagine. The game is a visual feast for the eyes as you travel through beautifully hand-crafted landscapes containing all manner of peculiar looking animals.
Excerpt: What is it? Everyone seems to be going organic these days; organic potatoes, organic apples, organic cotton T-shirts, organic clocks... anyone would think people don't realise the meaning of the word 'organic'.
Beautiful, imaginative adventure is a treat for eyes, ears.

Summary: Parents need to know that Botanicula is a point-and-click adventure game starring plant-like creatures who live on a giant tree. It contains subtle themes of environmentalism, but is primarily a game of exploration, discovery, and imagination, thanks to its beautiful and unique world and characters.
Excerpt: Nature is a perfect backdrop for a game about harmony. Botanicula (now on Steam ), a point-and-click exploration game from Amanita Design, extends that theme beyond the story of five tiny tree dwellers journeying to save their home from parasitic spider-creatures.
Summary: Do you like nature? Do you like little bugs, strange plants, creepy crawlies and things like that? And may be you love figuring things out, finding a way through a labyrinth or sorting out a puzzle? Then this is a game for you!
