Botanicula is a beautiful, soothing children's story set in an alien world of plant and insect people. The tree of life is being invaded by leeching spider monsters and you must go on an adventure to save your friends and grow a new tree. A story told with child-like wonder through charming art, point-and-click puzzles and quirky music all without words!

Botanicula has a folksy, weird-but-heartfelt atmosphere where you will drink psychedelic wine, listen to wordless folk tales, watch puppet shows, ride inside a yellow submarine creature's head, and find miniature ostriches to run inside wheels and power the propeller that lifts a village of nut people out of harm's way. It reminds me of playing with seed propellers, nuts and rocks as a kid and imagining tiny people. A joy to play.

If you're looking for a casual adventure game that has a feel good story line and an amazing art style then this is the game for you. This game is extremely charming in the way it delivers the plot and puzzles; there is no dialog so it's all done with visual clues and some very clever sound effects. Although it does seem a bit short, it's a perfect game to relax with and just explore the alien ecosystem, see what everything does and how they interact with each other and from doing this is how the solution to the puzzles should come to you.

Botanicula is an amazing indie game created & developed by Amanita Design, it's cute, relaxing and original!
I will make this fast and clean, sorry for not making a long paragraph.
The Good:
- The idea of the game is so creative and unique
- Cute and adorable characters
- Interesting story & pretty nice graphics
- It has an amazing soundtrack, really good one
- The puzzles are challenging & funny to solve, some may be hard but still fits good for the game
- Full of surprises & hidden bonuses, the game will make you smile pretty often
- The achievements aren't so hard to get, plus they look pretty cool!
- It offers about 4-5 hours of fun just to complete the story, and 6 to 7 hours to 100% the whole game (to get all cards & achievements)
The bad:
- I hated only one thing about it, it has no steam overlay while in-game, which means no SS unless you use some tricks to take some but i prefer not to do so .. the game is so so so pretty, i really wanted to take some screenshots for it so bad but i couldn't :/ other than that there is nothing bad about it.
Overall, this game is one of the rarest gems out there, it's sad to see how much crappy games are being added to steam lately, so it's so nice that we still have some cool games like that one, i really hope to see a second botanicula game .. and last but not least, this gem worth every single cent of the 9.99$, and i do recommend it to everyone. 9/10
