Whilst the harsh winter we have been plunged into has kept us indoors, shivering in our boots, let us not forget that spring will come. It’s inevitable! And what better game to celebrate the blooming of flowers than Botany Manor, which is one of the cosiest games we could ever look forward to. Do you have the green finger for this one? You should have, for it’s coming to Game Pass!
Grow them All!
In Botany Manor on Game Pass, Xbox, Switch and PC you’ll get to step into the muddy boots of retired botanist Arabella Greene. Arabella is determined to make her 19th century stately English home into a lush paradise, full of beautiful plants.
As you progress through this first-person title, you will add more and more plants to your collection, through puzzle solving. You see, Arabella has acquired a suite of notes through her career, and by making use of these you’ll be able to ensure your plants flourish. Solving environmental puzzles within the manor and its surrounding grounds will also bestow you additional knowledge.
Visually, you cannot help but be reminded of The Witness, one of our favourite puzzle games of all time. If Botany Manor can replicate The Witness’ magic, even to some degree, you bet it will be onto a winner when it launches in Spring 2024 on Game Pass, Xbox, Switch and PC. You’ll be able to thank Whitethorn Games and developer Balloon Studios for it.
- Explore the peaceful grounds and many calming rooms of the beautifully rendered, historically accurate 19th-century manor.
- Pick up, flip, turn, and rotate the many items found around the estate to piece together the clues to solve each plant-based puzzle.
- Learn about Arabella’s life and career, and the challenges she faced as a woman scientist during the 19th century as you explore.
- Fall in love with the calming soundtrack that perfectly compliments the environment and flowers you bring to full bloom.
So, when will we be playing Botany Manor? The game is posted for a Spring 2024 release date onto Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC. It will also be coming to Xbox Game Pass, day-one!
