BOTANICULA players get 50% off award-winning FEIST on Steam, September 4th - 18th

Owners of Botanicula have a new item in their Steam inventory: a 50% off coupon for FEIST.

Hello everyone, we have good news!

If you own Botanicula on Steam then we are happy to announce that you now have a new item in your Steam inventory: a 50% off coupon for FEIST.

FEIST is a multi-award-winning game created by our Swiss friends Bits & Beasts, and it has a lot in common with Botanicula: adorable creatures, weird insects, fearful enemies, a beautiful and mysterious world, gorgeous artwork, and a haunting soundtrack.

Adrian and Florian have been working on the game for more than six years, and it shows. But be warned: FEIST is also challenging and very fast-paced. It is a forest full of danger and narrow escapes.

Check your inventory now - the coupon is only valid from September 4th through September 18th!

Thanks for reading and we hope that you enjoy your time in the dangerous world of FEIST.

Botanicula is an incredibly charming, short-and-sweet game which is frequently described as having a “happy” identity. It is a point-and-click style, casual adventure game that takes you on a wondrous ride through a microcosmic fantasy world inhabited by bugs and critters. Any fan of point-and-click, adventure-puzzle games will likely enjoy the experience.

The best feature of this game is the overall charm inherent in its delivery. The art style and the soundscape together create the alluring atmosphere of the game. The simple story is told through animations and emotion-filled sounds rather than through text and dialogue. Despite the simple storytelling mechanics, all the characters you play and those you meet are uniquely interesting and charming.

The actual gameplay requires you to progress the story by solving puzzles via interaction with the world around you. It will be mostly trial and error; but nothing is too daunting. I felt the puzzles were a good balance of tricky and sensible; but they are not all necessarily logical. You will have to think about the puzzles in terms of the wacky game-world dynamics.

The game is rather short, even shorter if you rush through the main objectives. It is more enjoyable (and still somewhat short) if you take the time to interact with everything and see what you can discover. There are plenty of hidden “Easter eggs” and collectibles scattered throughout the game to cater to those who enjoy treasure hunts and achievements.

Botanicula is definitely a well-designed game that was created with love and care. I recommend that any point-and-click, adventure-puzzle gamer considering trying it. Its charm will cater to fans of the genre both young and old.
