Strange Horticulture cultivates and grows onto Switch today for a new kind of mystery

From Press Release:

Publisher Iceberg Interactive and developer Bad Viking are releasing their IGF nominated plant shop mystery game Strange Horticulture on the Nintendo Switch TODAY with an SRP of $14.99, offering a time-limited discount of 25%.

The game originally launched on PC platforms in January 2022, to wide critical acclaim. Last week NPR listed Strange Horticulture among their best games of 2022 so far:

Cozy and inviting, Strange Horticulture unfolds like a delicate flower. Behind rain-spattered windows you’ll identify specimens, decipher cryptic letters, and attend to customers seeking herbal remedies or dangerous potions.[…] And if you play your cards right, you may just crack an occult mystery and save a life or two.

Now Nintendo Switch players can also discover what awaits in Undermere.

Strange Horticulture blooms onto Nintendo’s handheld console, allowing even more players to experience what Nicole Carpenter from Polygon called “…one of the more impactful games I played this year”.

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.

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!

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.
