http://www.botanicula.net now has an active BUY button...
which takes you to:  http://www.humblebundle.com/

and, as a bonus: "Soundtracks are included with Botanicula, Machinarium, and Samorost 2!"

So what you are saying is I am a fool for preordering off GoG.com and I should have waited to get it for half price, with the soundtrack plus the soundtrack to Machinarium and Samorost 2 aswell as my 2nd or 3rd key for each of those.

Its a kind kick in the teeth for anyone who preordered or bought at full price, its not the price, its that you get more for paying less!

I see where you're coming from but if you chose to pre-order the game you had the intention to help/support the indie developer behind it, and you did just that. Now you may pay what you want for this nice bundle and support a good cause in the process. I think this is a Win Win situation, since you could basically get it cheap and consider it further bonus content and help charity of course.

to digress: btw, I already purchased Machinarium and Samorost 2 a long while ago, I can't remember if there were actually keys
for them,  or simply full downloads for the games... hmm

I preordered Botanica on GOG, too, because I really enjoyed Machinarium (although it was done in Flash Lips sealed) and some of your web-based flash games. But this feels like a quite disrespectful move towards your customers.

Anyway, I'm going to get a refund on GOG, get the full Humble Bundle and give a lot of that money to charity, I guess. Please act with a little more consideration when coming up with deals like this, as it does not put you in a particularly good light.

btw, what is Steam Key? Doesn't look like it is necessary to play Botanicula.

BTW part two, I paid 20 for Machinarium a while back, I think it's 10 now.... but that's the Digital Life!

The Steam key is for registering the games on the Steam Platform if you want them on your Steam account. Instead of a Web interface like Humble Bundle or Gog.com you get a client where you can then proceed to download your games on.

I bought Botanicula and it says it can't open with my MAC OS X Version. First I thought it has got something to do with the ending .app But then I tried machinarium and this works. So does anybody has an idea what the problem is and how it can be solved? I'd really like to play this game!!

It may have something to do with Adobe AIR not being installed. Click on the link and try to install it then retry to run the game.

I guess that's it. Because I even can't open the latest Adobe Air version after download. So maybe now I have to buy an expensive new iLive version or something like this.  But thanks for your help.
