HAARLEM, THE NETHERLANDS, May 23rd, 2024 - Since the release of Strange Horticulture in 2022, fans have been itching to delve further into the mysterious town of Undermere, and the myriad characters that populate it. Well, the wait is over – we are happy to share our news, because the time has come! Having struggled to keep this under wraps, we can unveil a new store, a new occult mystery to unravel, and a new cat…

Publisher Iceberg Interactive and developer Bad Viking are pushing the franchise into a new direction. While the occult shopkeeping mystery title focussed on a plant shop, its sequel will delve into a world of mysterious artefacts.

Strange Horticulture has sold over 750,000 copies on all platforms, and boasts an Overwhelmingly Positive review score on Steam from over 10,000 reviews. It was PC Gamer’s puzzle game of the year, has an OPENCRITIC rating of 84, with recommendations from Polygon and RockPaperShotgun, and was included in numerous best-game-of-the-year lists. Additionally, the game received nominations for Best Game Design at the IGF and MCV Develop. These are just a few of the many accolades the game has received.

Strange Antiquities is a brand new adventure set in the quaint and gloomy town of Undermere. Become the custodian of a store dealing in occult antiquities. Explore the quaint and gloomy town of Undermere, where strange goings-on and dark mysteries abound. Find and identify arcane artefacts, use your collection to aid the townsfolk with their unusual problems — and remember to pet your cat!

About the game:

Taking place several years after the events of Strange Horticulture, Strange Antiquities is a new, dark, and cosy standalone adventure set in the world of Undermere. It is a place of ancient woodland, candle-lit libraries, and macabre folklore, where strange things happen as often as it rains.

You are the Thaumaturge’s apprentice, tasked with running a shop dealing in occult antiquities. When hundreds of ravens start circling over the town of Undermere, those in the know become concerned. Occult Scholar Verona Green visits Strange Antiquities to enquire about the unnatural series of events. But before she is able to meet with you, events take a sinister turn…

Hunt down and identify powerful objects and arcane artefacts, and use them to assist the residents of Undermere with their curious and unusual problems.

Prepare for a new adventure, filled with more mystery, puzzles, and dark twists and turns.

A message from the developers:

We are two brothers from the UK who have been making games together for over a decade. In 2022 we released our occult puzzle game Strange Horticulture, and the response has been incredible; from amazing reviews and award nominations to appearing in numerous best-of-the-year lists. Most importantly, it has been a joy to read the kind words left by so many of our players on Steam, where we are still rated Overwhelmingly Positive after almost 10,000 reviews!

We want to thank everyone who has played Strange Horticulture, left us a review, told their friends, or supported the game in any way. It has been an amazing journey and we can't wait to share the next chapter with you.


Happy Gaming!
