The atmospheric 2009 adventure game from Amanita Designs (“Botanicula”) is making the leap to the Vita on the 26th with a bunch of touch controls and all that noise.
Amanita lead designer Jakub Dvorský took to the PlayStation blog to make the announcement about the port which will now feature touchscreen controls (in addition to the analog controls) along with a zoom-in function, the better to see painter Adolf Lachman’s environments.
The 2009 release was the first full-length game from the Czech studio which has also tried its hand at music videos and building websites (they seem like more of an art collective than strict game development house). Their IGF Award-winning “Machinarium” featured a robot consigned to the scrap heap which had to:
…use logic, collect important items, and solve environmental puzzles to get the robot back into the city of Machinarium so he can rescue his robot-girlfriend, save the head of the city, and defeat the bad guys from the Black Cap Brotherhood.
“Machinarium” is currently available on the PS3 and the Vita port will be available for $6.99.
