Humble Botanicula Debut

Aaaaaand the Humble Bundle is back, right on cue.  This time, they're supporting Earth Day!  Sort of!  I mean, they are always kinda ecological, since everything is a download and there's no packaging waste or whatnot, I guess, but this pack is specifically geared toward Mama Earth.

If you couldn't tell by the title, this particular Bundle is the debut of Botanicula by Amanita Design.  In fact, this Bundle is full of Amanita Games, including past Bundle participants Machinarium and Samorost 2.  If you haven't seen an Amanita game, you're missing out - and if you have seen one, you'd remember, because the distinct style and design add so much charm and character to the great gameplay.  Botanicula is full of forests and bugs, keeping with the nature theme, but still retains the Amanita touch that makes their games so recognizable.  Along with these three games, you'll also get puzzle game Windosill from Vector Park.

(Non-game related to prove that this Bundle is all Earthy: the charity this time around is the World Land Trust.  Go team!)

The most intriguing part of this Bundle, though, is that it features a full-length film.  Pay more than the average and you can get Czech film Kooky, dubbed in English.  I haven't checked it out yet but the trailer (below) is super adorable and it looks creative and extremely well done.  Expect a review soon, and in the meantime show your support to Humble Bundle.
