Having a green thumb is a great way to relax. Especially when that thumb is put to work reviving extraordinary dead plants. It’s going to take a lot more than fertilizer and some water to get these plants growing again. Today, Whitethorn Games and Balloon Studios are happy to announce that Balloon’s debut title, Botany Manor, is releasing in Spring of 2024. Coming to PC, Nintendo Switch, and Xbox, the game allows players to assume the role of a retired botanist in possession of a collection of exotic plants. Of course, the catch is that the plants are dead. An announcement trailer gives players a look at the garden that awaits them.
Botany Manor introduces players to Arabella Greene. Arabella has been entering her retirement and as such has returned to her estate, Botany Manor. However, she is not returning to an empty home. Throughout her career she gathered a large collection of rare, forgotten plants. Now, through meticulous research, players must help Arabella make these plants live again. Interestingly, players will explore the grounds of the, historically accurate, 19th century manor. Here, you will need to search the grounds for notes, books, posters, and items that will grant you clues as to how to revive the plants.
Of course, Botany Manor allows players to unlock new seeds, discover new notes, and also uncover details about Arabella’s life. Players can check out the game in the new announcement trailer. Importantly, the trailer gives players a look at the gameplay and the art style. View the trailer below.
Botany Manor is releasing on PC, Nintendo Switch, and Xbox in Spring 2024. The game will also be available day one with Xbox Game Pass.
