Amanita Design is a Czech Republic-based team of designers who make some of the most beautiful, off-beat, and engaging games I’ve played. Like the meditative Samorost and Samorost 2 (which look like what Rene Redzepi would do if he made games instead of food).
Exciting news: Their newest point and click adventure game, Botanicula, is now available on a pay-what-you-want basis. And it looks like the cast of characters is made of up of wild seeds and flowers, protecting their home from invaders. I haven’t had a chance to play this one yet but after seeing the preview and the shots below, I can’t wait.
