Botanicula Debuts in Humble Bundle; GOG.com Preorder Makeup

Humble Mumble announces the debut of the Humble Botanicula Debut, a bundle celebrating the launch of Botanicula, Amanita Design's brand new game, bundled with Machinarium, Samorost 2, Kooky, and Windosill. This is offered as a pick-your-price deal, and it's interesting to note the announcement of the game's release on GOG.com at its regular price indicates the publisher was not expecting the game's debut to compete with a bargain bundle, and a subsequent post attempts to make this all right by announcing they have secured "a number of goodies from the bundle" for customers who preordered Botanicula through them. Here's word on the new game:

In Botanicula, you must guide a motley band of tree creatures in a journey to save their home from brooding, spider-like invaders. With a huge cast of charming characters and an original soundtrack by the Czech alternative band DVA, Botanicula is the latest and greatest example of Amanita Design’s unique storybook vision brought to vivid fruition in an point-and-click adventure/puzzle game.

Because Botanicula has important environmental themes, we’re hoping you’ll allocate some of your purchase to support the World Land Trust, an international conservation charity focused on protecting threatened habitats.

These are the kind of issues that GoG is going to run into now that they've moved to new releases, especially indie games. Even this event aside, they are always going to be outsold by Steam or Humble Bundle who can sell it less than they can.

If this game is available on humble bundle or Gog for 9.99, I see no point whatsoever to get it on GOG outside of just wanting to support GOG.
