Don’t count out the possibility of a handset version of Botanicula. In a chat with Pocket Gamer, Czech dev Amanita Design said it was at least considering the idea of bringing the mind-meltingly gorgeous point-and-click “exploration game” to phones. Fleshing that comment out, it cautioned that Botanicula for phones is “still just an idea and we need to carry out a few experiments before we can talk about it seriously.”

Botanicula was revealed earlier this month and is currently slated for a release at some point in early 2012 across the PC and Macintosh. Its premise goes a little something like this: five bug-like friends go on a journey to “save the last seed from their home tree which is infested by evil parasites” and, apparently, spiders.

"Mind-meltingly gorgeous" is probably an understatement on my part, by the way. Botanicula is... just, wow. We sincerely hope a touch version will prove viable for the studio.

      I think the music was written specifically for the game, by a Czech band called DVA.

      Also, this looks utterly awesome.

    Did I somehow miss a review of Amanita Design's awesome Machinarim for iOS? Please tell me Touch Arcade covered that gem.
