This Botanicula walkthrough is designed to help players finish the game. In this guide, you will find tips and tricks, along with helpful hints and strategies. Botanicula is an indie adventure game from Amanita Design and was released in 2012. The game involves pointing and clicking of the mouse to control five quirky characters whose goal is to plant a light seed and avoid dark parasites. Botanicula has received a 10/10 rating on Steam and is playable on iOS and Android devices.
Chapter 1 – The Three Feathers
Follow this Botanicula walkthrough to complete this chapter. The game opens and you will see a parasite trying to steal the light seeds from the titular tree of the game. The parasite leaves behind a seed, which ends up in the hands of the five main characters that are focused on saving the seed.
However, an insect-like creature named Brambora blocks the path of the game’s protagonists. Brambora cannot leave without his wings – three of which are missing. The goal of this chapter is to find the three wings and give them to Brambora.
Go up to the crossroads. Keep going to the far left where there are two creatures guarding something. This is where you will find the first wing. You cannot pass with all the five creatures, so send the twig-like character with no name to get the wing.
Return to the crossroads until you reach the farthest branch to the right where you will find the second wing. The third feather is floating on the east side of the tree. Click on it to get it.
Things You Will Need
To complete this part of the Botanicula walkthrough you do not need anything other than the three feathers. You just need to follow the instructions above and you will pass the level.
Here is one where you will meet Bzukavec to gain a brilliant ending for the game. As you go up the crossroads, you will find a black creature on the right part of the screen just under a branch.
Clicking on the creature will make it hide behind a leaf. Keep clicking on him until you see a red insect named Bzukavec. You can skip this part, but Bzukavec can give you a Tree Mythology entry.
Another is finding the creature cards. In this level, you should be able to collect 11 of them.
Find the jack-o-lantern by clicking continuously on the same black character as above. Click the jack-o-lantern twice to get the card. Find three twigs, click on them until they turn to flowers and they attract insects. Pop a balloon from a small spider.
You will get it when you gain the first feather or wing. Walk south and then back to the northern part of the tree. Walk south then to the right. Go up the branch and find six pods. Find a shell and use it several times.
Use the character that looks like a mushroom to go to a hole in the branch. Use the feather character to the same hole. Go back to the black creature and give him his lost feathers to get the last card.
Chapter 2 – The Five Keys
In this next part of the Botanicula walkthrough, the goal is to retrieve the five missing keys that will be used to unlock a special room. Finish this chapter by following the steps below.
Go south where you will find the magic mushrooms. Keep going south until you find a chestnut creature that will talk to you. Go south again until you see a beehive. Click on it, a bug will appear that will drop a light seed. A snail will get the seed once you click on it.
Go northwest where you will find a red ball, which you will use to get a key. Go east then southwest until you see some berries. You will see a gray creature here. Click and hold on him until you see that his eye begins to flash.
He will start singing while two more creatures like him will arrive. Click and hold as well until they all start to sing. Repeat until the big gray creature arrives. Enter the mouth of the large creature where you will see a green character. Click on him to make him spit out the second key.
For the third key, find a big red spike in the east and pull it down. Let a small character bounce on the red spike where you will get the key. For the fourth, you will find a white creature when you go north. Follow it as it heads east.
Click on the white creature twice to make it lay three eggs. Touch the eggs with your mouse to hatch them. You will get the fourth key. Go southeast to get the final key where there is a huge gap. Use the twig character to get the last key, which is in the water.
