Wednesday in... Botanicula
Well we are not in Japan today or even Tucson, we are in Botanicula.
I don't play video games. Turning on the computer and having it actually work or trying to get it to work is all the excitement or frustration (thanks comcast) I can handle.
But if I wanted to play a game this would be the one.
When son show this to me the first words out of my mouth besides Oh My Goodness ! was, is this from the Czech Republic ?
You can just look at certain style and know where it is from. I am a huge fan of European, East European, Scandinavian styles, so different from the American based design. It is quirky (?) for a better word choice.
This game is from Amanita Design, and tells the story of a motley band of five friends, little tree creatures, who set out on a journey to save the last seed from their home tree from brooding, spider-like invaders.
The five little creatures are so charming, the art work is beautiful and the whole game is fabulous.
If you go to the You Tube site and look at the the right side there is one square that will say... walkthrough part 1 and you can see the begining of the story... awwwwwwwwww.
The little group sounds like the Rayman Raving Rabbits from the French group Ubisoft.
That game just makes me laugh.
So here is your mid-week pretty.
