Official overview

Botanicula is a point'n'click exploration game created by Jaromír Plachý and Amanita Design. It’s about a group of five friends -- little tree creatures who set out on a journey to save the last seed from their home tree, which is infested by evil parasites. The gameplay is about exploration, solving little funny puzzles, meeting strange tree creatures, and paying attention to the music as it provides you with useful clues and hints. The whole game takes place on one huge and strange tree that is inhabited by bizarre and freaky creatures.

This is not an ordinary game. It is far from it. Everything about it is curiously unique and very surreal, and that alone makes it worth checking out. It's just not possible to be bored in this game, as every new location brings something new and intriguing. The exploration elements are made with incredible polish and attention to detail, and the same applies to the musical score, sound effects, and, most importantly, the visuals. The synergy of those elements create a beautiful and memorable adventure that is enthralling beyond measure.

GOG trivia

  • Botanicula was the second game to be offered as a preorder on GOG.com
  • The release of Botanicula on GOG.com sparked some controversy as the original announcement explained that Botanicula would be an exclusive-to-GOG release. The day that Botanicula was unlocked for pre-order customers, it was also released as part of the Humble Indie Bundle. GOG.com later apologised and offered everyone who pre-ordered Botanicula a copy of The Witcher.
