Publisher Iceberg Interactive and developer Bad Viking are excited to bring Strange Horticulture to Steam in Early 2022 - but you don't have to wait that long to get your hands on this atmospheric mystery - an updated free demo and brand-new trailer have been released just in time for Steam Next Fest 2021!
Earlier this month, Rock Paper Shotgun's Alice Bell remarked:
I cannot explain how meditative and relaxing I find running Strange Horticulture. The demo is magical and wonderful and I just want all of you to play it and fall in love like I did.
Strange Horticulture is an unusual game about collecting and cataloguing powerful plants.
Find and identify new plants, pet your cat, speak to a coven, or join a cult. Use your growing collection to influence the story and unravel Undermere’s dark mysteries.
WELCOME TO UNDERMERE
Welcome to Undermere, a quaint town surrounded by hag-infested forests and rugged mountains. You are the Horticulturist, owner of local plant store Strange Horticulture. As a cast of colorful customers come by your shop, you are quickly thrust into an occult mystery stretching back hundreds of years.
THE LANDS BEYOND
Explore the lands beyond your store to find new plants, but be careful! The dark woods and lakes are not always friendly to a simple herbalist. You might discover powers beyond your wildest dreams - or lose your mind completely. Use context clues to determine which places to visit, and which to avoid!
AN EVER-GROWING COLLECTION
Using your trusty encyclopedia and clues found on your explorations, you learn more about the strange plants you come across. By identifying each plant, you will be able to use their effects to influence the story -- from hypnotic hallucinogens to powerful poisons.
