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.
Samorost 3 is out now for $19.99 through Steam, GOG.com, Humble Store and the Mac App Store. Samorost 3 Cosmic Edition – containing the full game, 90-minute original soundtrack and 170-page digital art book featuring design drawings from creator Jakub Dvorský – is also available* for $24.99.
Samorost 3 is expected to launch on iOS and Android devices later this year.
*Cosmic Edition not available on the Mac App Store.
