Not to be lost amidst all the Kickstarter hoopla of late are some highly anticipated games that are almost ready for release. Heading that list (Hype-o-Meter don't lie) is Amanita's Botanicula, which is celebrating its launch date announcement with a brand new video.
The latest game from the creators of Samorost and Machinarium casts players in the multiple roles of five tiny tree critters, who must begin a quest to save their home when the last remaining seed in their treehouse is invaded by parasites. But life isn't easy when you're small, and as the new trailer suggests, the world is full of dangers and obstacles that will take all of them working together to overcome.
But just who are these strange and unusual protagonists? For a closer look, be sure to check out the charming introductory character videos below. Those will have to tide you over for a while, but not too much longer, as Botanicula is scheduled for release on PC, Mac, and Linux at the official website on April 19th.
