Botanicula Creepycrawls Out On 19th April

By John Walker on April 4th, 2012 at 8:00 pm.

My face when I played it.

Playing the preview code of Botanicula made me so happy one of my legs fell off. So I’m delighted to report that everyone’s going to have a chance to squeeze off their limbs with excitement on the 19th April, when the full game comes out. To commemorate, a new trailer has appeared, which you can see below. You’ll likely lose a toe.

The pictures! The music. My goodness, the music. And the pictures! And eek! Spider!

Sorry, I appear to have lost any sense of decorum. And the ability to walk.

    This looks pretty special. The music reminded me of Jónsi, which is great :)

  5. Khemm says:

    Gimme. Amanita is also working on Samorost 3, so that’s quite a lineup to from them to look foward to.

    My body is ready.

    The screenshot really makes it look like a 2D Boy game.

  9. piphil says:

    Hang on, Fly Aminita…?

    Any reason why this was the preview text when I posted this on a friend’s wall?

  16. Tom De Roeck says:


    Oh me and the kids will LOVE this one. seriously..

  17. tremulant says:

    Any idea if us sphenisciphiles will get an opportunity to throw money at them too?

  18. DrScuttles says:

    Despite it being a Thursday, I fully intend to have a colossal hangover that morning on account of it being my birthday on the 18th (a date I share with not one but two of my attention-vying friends. Bastards).

    However, Botanicula looks so wonderfully charming, I may buy it to sooth my very soul that evening. But no pricing info! For shame.

  19. milan.jirkovsky says:

    The music is made by wonderfull Czech band called “Dva” (it means “two” in czech), you can hear them here, more about them on their site

  20. Museli says: has just announced that pre-orders of Botanicula will be available, with a couple of extra goodies like bonus art and a soundtrack.

    • Trippin says:

      and its only 9 dollar, or just over 7 euro’s on GOG.

      FYI they did shut-up and took my money. Now i will just replay this and the former trailer to get me in the right mood
