Strange Horticulture - Pepper - 01-12-2023

Anybody who likes puzzle games might enjoy this - it includes several nods to the Voynich: You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login to view.

You play a medieval herbalist who must find and identify plants with the aid of Voynich-esque manuscript. Your MS is written in English but the images are often not literal, and the text is sometimes vague. You have to use your plant IDs to mix potions, help customers, and solve a mystery.

I really like these kind of games and found it had a good level of challenge, nice music, and of course the Voynich references made me smile.

For the avoidance of doubt I'm not involved in the game's production in any way, just bought it on Steam and thought other forumites might like it.
