Botanicula Creepycrawls Out On 19th April

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.

  2. AmateurScience says:

    I think I just transcended physical being and became an incandescent cloud of joy.

  3. Hoaxfish says:

    Amanita sit down after that

  4. Faldrath says:

    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.

  6. Nero says:

    My body is ready.

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

    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 link to, more about them on their site link to

  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
