Get excited for even stranger things in Strange Antiquities!

Bad Viking, developers of the celebrated occult puzzle game Strange Horticulture,
announce their highly anticipated new game with a teaser trailer!

HAARLEM, THE NETHERLANDS, May 23rd, 2024 – Publisher Iceberg Interactive and
developer Bad Viking are pushing the Strange Horticulture franchise into a new direction with
Strange Antiquities. While the occult shopkeeping mystery title Strange Horticulture focused
on a plant shop, its sequel will delve into a world of mysterious artefacts.

Strange Antiquities is a brand-new adventure set in the quaint and gloomy town of
Undermere, where you’ll become the owner of a store dealing in occult antiquities. Use your
maps to explore the town, find and identify arcane artefacts, and use your collection to aid
the townsfolk with their unusual problems. And please—remember to pet your cat!
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.

As the Thaumaturge’s apprentice, you’ll be tasked with running a shop dealing with
mysterious antiques. But 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 inquire about the unnatural series of events. However, before she can meet
with you, events take a sinister turn…

The first entry in the series, Strange Horticulture, has sold over 500,000 copies on all
platforms and boasts an Overwhelmingly Positive review score on Steam from over 10,000
reviews. It also saw critical acclaim, earning PC Gamer’s puzzle game of the year, an
OPENCRITIC rating of 84, and strong recommendations from Polygon and Rock Paper,
Shotgun, alongside inclusion on numerous best-game-of-the-year lists. Additionally, the
game received nominations for Best Game Design at the IGF and MCV Develop.
