It's a point-and-click adventure game with a difference, this Botanicula, and a recent demo that fits snugly in your browser makes for a soothing and stimulating lunchtime diversion.
Botanicula is the latest from Czech group Amanita Design, having previously won plaudits for the charmingly designed Samorost series and Machinarium, both of which were also point & clickers.
Machinarium migrated from PC and Mac over to iPad 2 in September 2011, with BlackBerry PlayBook and Android versions following.
For now, Botanicula's friendly tendrils extend to Windows PC, Mac and Linux in a $10 package, but its elegant, minimal interface would yet make for a pleasingly cozy affair on touchscreen devices.
That's if Amanita should choose to reconfigure Botanicula, just as has happened with Colibri Games' The Tiny Bang Story and Big Fish Games' Drawn: The Painted Tower.
