Explore the Stately Home and its Grounds to Uncover Long-Forgotten Flora Seeds and Clues Gathered Through Years of Research to Create the Unique Circumstances Required to Bring Them to Bloom

Erie, Pennsylvania (April 9, 2024) — Today, Whitethorn Games — publisher of inclusive, accessible, easy-going games including APICO, Calico, and Lake — along with developers Balloon Studios, is thrilled to announce that the highly-anticipated botanical puzzle game Botany Manor is now available on PC, Nintendo Switch, and Xbox, as well as Xbox Game Pass. Set in a historical English homestead brimming with a lifetime of memorabilia and research to explore, players will uncover long-forgotten seeds and piece together clues as they solve puzzles to help each rare plant grow.

“We can’t wait to share Botany Manor with the world and see players solve the puzzles and learn more about Arabella’s life,” said Laure De Mey, Founder of Balloon Studios. “The whole team worked incredibly hard and put tons of love into the game. We all have a passion for English manors and gardens, so to now bring that experience to all kinds of people is just incredibly exciting to us.”

“As an avid botanist myself, it’s been a joy to work with Balloon Studios to bring Botany Manor to launch,” said Dr. Matthew White, CEO of Whitethorn Games. “This game represents our commitment to crafting inclusive, accessible experiences that captivate and inspire players. Botany Manor will immerse players in a stunning world of exploration, engaging puzzles, and an engrossing narrative for them to uncover. We couldn't be happier to share it with the world." 

The enduring estate of Botany Manor is home to retired botanist Arabella Greene. After a long career, she has amassed a collection of rare, long-forgotten plants that require some research to help them live again. Play as Arabella and explore the stunning historic manor and its grounds to look for clues in her notes, books, posters, and items scattered around the residence to determine the correct set of circumstances to help the flora flourish. Unlock new seed varieties and plant them. Interactable items around the property that can be turned and flipped will provide information to help you solve each gardening puzzle, grow the plants and discover their mysterious qualities.

Key Features of Botany Manor include:

  • 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.

Botany Manor is now available on PC via Steam, Nintendo Switch, and Xbox One and Xbox Series S|X, for $24.99 USD and Xbox Game Pass. Until April 14, PC players can purchase the game on Steam at a 10% launch celebration discount.
