which shows off gameplay and some of the game's unusual and
beautiful environments. Here's word on the release:
Amanita Design, the
independent developer of award-winning puzzle games like Machinarium and
Botanicula, has launched Samorost 3 on Windows PC and Mac platforms. This
point-and-click exploration adventure is a loose follow-up to the original indie
hits Samorost (2003) and Samorost 2 (2005). It follows a curious space gnome who
uses the magical powers of a mysterious flute to travel through the cosmos in
search of its origins.
Samorost 3 is Amanita’s most ambitious experience yet, combining the intricate
logic puzzles of Machinarium with Botanicula’s more relaxed gameplay and tone.
Players will journey across nine uniquely alien worlds, each a distinctive
ecosystem teeming with colorful creatures, characters, challenges, achievements
and surprises to discover.
Brought alive by detailed artwork and expressive animations, Samorost 3’s
surreal landscapes and lifeforms draw a balance between stylishly bizarre and
believable. The game’s eclectic audio and soundtrack –composed by inventive
musician Floex – are both abstract and atmospheric, frequently playing key roles
alongside environmental clues in the game’s puzzles and mini-games.
