Samorost 3 original sketch goes as artsSamorost 3 is the latest creation of Amanita design launched 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.

We are very proud of presenting some of the original designs and sketches for this 3 iconic games. This is a fantastic opportunity to find out where the original ideas for the games came from.
