Through the rest of 2022 and into the future, the Switch will offer a diverse selection of upcoming independent titles. Based on Nintendo’s most recent Indie World Showcase. One of the titles that stood out is Balloon Studios’ first game, Botany Manor. The upcoming title is an investigative puzzle game set in a stately home in 19th-century England.
Published by Whitethorn Games the same company that was behind Lake and APICO. Botany Manor sets you off on a unique adventure to find the ideal habitat for rare flora. The manor will be seen through the eyes of Arabella Greene, a retired botanist. Her rare and forgotten flora collection requires a proper home. Interactable items, books, notes, and posters scattered around the manor will be needed to solve plant-based puzzles.
“With Botany Manor, I wanted to create a game for underrepresented audiences like myself. I’m proud of the work we’ve done, and grateful for the support from my team and the team at Whitethorn Games.”Laure De Mey, Founder of Balloon Studios
Key features of Botany Manor include:
- Seeds of the Past: Room by room, learn more about the life and career of Arabella, and the challenges she faced as a woman navigating her scientific career.
- Fawning Over Flora: The puzzles in Botany Manor come in the shape of growing plants. Find seeds, pot them and carry your seedlings to the right environment. But finding their ideal habitat will sometimes require you to think outside the box…
- Stop and Smell the Roses: Botany Manor is a relaxing and peaceful environment, with many rooms and gardens to discover. Take the time to enjoy the beautifully rendered countryside, 19th-century architecture, and of course, the flora.
Botany Manor will release on the Nintendo Switch and PC via Steam sometime in 2023. No price has been announced yet but you can wishlist the title now on Steam.
