Summary: I've been a gamer since the 80s, and I consider myself a die-hard gamer. I have to admit that my main reason for buying this game was that the scenes are absolutely beautiful. (The fact that it has all 5 star reviews was also a selling point! :-) This is unlike any game I have ever played before. It kind of reminds me a little bit of Pure Hidden (which is beautiful as well) but it requires more thought.
Summary: It's a point and click puzzle game. You must help a group of botanical creatures save the last seed from their tree, being destroyed by spidery disease creatures, by collecting objects and solving puzzles. My 8 year old loves it. Lots of detail, charming characters and some fairly difficult puzzles (we had to get some help from walkthroughs). Exploring the environment is fun and the accompanying music/sounds are sweet.
Summary: Another amazing game! From Samorost to machinarium, these developers continue to amaze me with their level design, art, and soundtrack. Developers that take the time to add so much detail and life to games are hard to come by. Looking forward to their next project.
Summary: What is this beauty, these colors, this world, these creatures, everything in this game is incredibly amazing. Botanicula is full of surprises. You will never expect what will happen next to be shocked by something beautiful that you have not seen before.
