As a motley band of tree creatures try to save your home from parasitic invaders.
It's part point and click game, part interactive storybook. The sounds and graphics work really well to give the Botanicula universe a unique feel and it's a nice relaxing game to play in short sessions at a time. The actual game length isn't too great at around 4 -5 hours, but it's high quality and full of nice little details.
To sum up my experience I'd call it a pleasant storybook adventure.
I played Botanicula with the 7 year old daughter of a friend and we had a lot of fun, even though some of the puzzles were a little to hard, for both of us. But the artwork, the music and sound effects (I love the frog song and we played it three or four times in a row) make a perfect game not just for a single afternoon.
