Amanita Design knows point and click exploration games. They made this amazing game called Machinarium which is available on practically anything electronic. The team has paired up with Jára Plachý to create another point and clicker called Botanicula. The music and sound effects are created by Czech band DVA.
Jakub Dvorsky describes it as the following: “It’s about a bunch of five friends – little tree creatures who set out for a journey to save the last seed from their home tree which is infested by evil parasites.” Sounds like a pretty noble journey!
The animation, artwork, and music all look fantastic, and I imagine they are all representative of what we’ll see when we get to play Botanicula soon!
Check out the trailer below:
Release of Botanicula is planned for early 2012. The dev states its headed for PC, Mac and probably also for iOS and Android.
The imagination factor seems to have hit a 12 on a 10-point scale, but maybe that’s just me fan-boy gushing. What do you make of the teaser?
