Wasn't Amanita Design involved in a movie as well? I keep meaning to see if it's available for rental, but darned if I can remember the name of it offhand.

These games are just so whimsical and beautifully done.

So hurry up, already. Teasers make me cranky!

The movie is called Kooky. I don't know if it was ever localized, or if so, how well.

The spider-things in Botanicula are going to be in my nightmares now. HOW CAN A CIRCLE AND SOME LINES BE SO CREEPY

This is excellent stuff, like Plaid crossed with The Cinematic Orchestra. Yes please!

I absolutely loved Machinarium, and its soundtrack I regularly use for reading/studying music. Thanks a lot for the heads-up and the updates on their games!

Rock Paper Shotgun article about the English dub of Kooky; includes trailer.

It looks like it didn't get picked up for distribution at the Berlin Film Festival. The subtitled version can still be bought here.

Thanks so much for posting this! I had never heard of Floex -- just ordered the LP. Cheers!

You're welcome! Yeah the Amanita newsletter is one of the few newsletters I actually opt into. They never send you anything unless they actually have something worth noting.
