Strange Horticulture is an occult puzzle game in which you play as the proprietor of a local plant store. Find and identify new plants, pet your cat, speak to a coven, or join a cult. Use your collection of powerful plants to influence the story and unravel Undermere’s dark mysteries.


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.

Calm, Relaxing Game of Horticultural Story Telling

I love this game. I watched Gab Smolders play for about 30 minutes before trying to find it to play myself. It can be very fun to hear the stories of people and play doctor or help solve some puzzles using the plants you can discover. If you’re looking for a game with good story in between puzzles, this is it!

Boring, maybe good for kids

From what I can tell all you do over and over is guess a plant from some small amount of clues. When you guess correctly you get new unidentified plants in your shop. There doesn’t seem to be any compelling overarching story, or reward system aside from gaining more plants. It seems to be a pointless cycle of get clue, guess which plant, receive new plant, get clue, guess plant… and on and on . If there ends up being more to it I’ll change my review, but I think I’ve been playing at least an hour or so at this point. The clues and plants aren’t even particularly interesting. Like find a red plant, find a waxy plant…zzzzzzz
