A wonderfully bizarre and strangely fun Flash game by Jakub Dvorský of Amanita Design. Samorost is an adventure game that is full of clicky puzzles and beautifully rendered scenes mixed with animations and various gadgetry. The soundtrack is delightful with sound effects and music to fit the mood of the surrealistic adventure. It's not very long, but will keep you busy for just the right amount of time. It's quite large though, measuring 950 pixels wide by 750 pixels tall. Enjoy this masterpiece of creativity and interactive art.

Play Samorost

Samorost Walkthrough

Screen 1:

Click the metal cylinder at the top and get the telescope out. You get a cinema scene of another world going to crach into our hero's. Off he flies to save his home.

Screen 2:

Click the smoker and wait until there is nothing left to smoke. Click him again, and he throws the thing down. Click the low hanging wire on the ski lift, so it goes back up, then use the smoker's inhaling end as a key in the box. Press the red button, then get the monk out of your way, point the sign to the left, and ski the hero down.

Screen 3:

Click the bobber at the end of the fishing reel. Click all the lizards that try to climb up, then click the pterodactyl that picks at the fish bones. Presto!

Screen 4:

Click the knob on lthe log at the right until you cant anymore. Click the hole in the left foreground log, then click the hole to the lower left of the hero a few times, so the bees and then the guy with the lightbulb will come out. Click the button below the hero, then click the silver knob on the elevator and then the hero.

Screen 5:

Click all the worms when they come out, then click the hole in the middle of the screen. press the button on the record player, then shift the music twice. Click the owl a few times, and off you go.

Screen 6:

Open the elevator's door, then move the metal rod on the tree. Wait until the anteater is eating, then click the stairs. Open the power box and set the switches like it shows on the door, then go in.

Screen 7:

Turn on the light, then, using the left hand set of buttons, set the dial to 50. Click the middle left button, click the whaeel at the top, and there you go. :)

O that's it, that's it! This is the game that I was talking about that one time.. where the little guy's trying to save his planet! hehe!

I know everyone's gotten out from the Crimson Room awhile back, but have you escaped the Viridian Room yet?

PS. Thanks for the comment Jay. [[[[HUGS]]]]

Do you mean the bit with the ski lift or the one after? The ski lift you get the pipe fella to smoke all his coal then use the pipe as a key move the slack string and start the lift. Move the goat and hey presto. Next screen press on the very bottom of the line - you may need to zoom in and scroll if the bottom of the screen isn't fitting on. Fend off the lizards and get the pterodactyl to take you onwards

I'm having trouble playing this game on my 15" new iMac, since the window goes off the screen far enough to keep the fishing float from being visible, meaning my game is through there. Am I missing something? Or this game just to friggin' big? I LOVE the concept though.

Jhoka - the game requires a resolution of 950x750. Check the resolution that's set for your display, and increase it if possible. I'm sure the 15" iMac is capable of 1024x768, which should be just enough to display this game.

What music is being played in the scene where the capsule is hung on a limb, there are worms chewing and an owl is asleep on the limb, and the squirrel is listening to music. I would like to know the source of the music and titles.
Thanks

This game was wierd. I just dont get it? how did it take you four attempts? i didnt even realise you could die! I just clicked around and it changed scene. It was a bit slow too. Dont get me wrong it looked great, but i think it would be better in a gallery than as a game.

Easy Peasy! wow, i found it so easy i thought i was doing it wrong. Actually to be truthful, there was a point i thought i had died and would have to start all over again (like in Hapland 2). The bit where the ant eater ate me! The game is a little weird and it is short but i like it!!
Just keep clicking around and you'll get it (thats what i did).

LOVE this one. I'm so into point and click games. I'm obsessed with the puzzles, love the escape the room ones....

Jay... have you thought about having, in addition to the search feature on your website, an area where you can click on a type of game that lists corresponding games of that nature?
i.e....
click on point and click and find a list of links to each of those games. I guess a kind of categorization system, so people that specifically liked those types of games could easily find them on your site?

just a thought...

I too had come across this game YEARS ago, loved it, then lost it, then came across it again and loved it all over, the second one too. I in no way minded paying the $7 for #2, these guys deserve every penny. They have produced a beautiful, original game. Their websites and animations are just fantastic.

I consider time spent with this game, the farthest thing from a "waste" of minutes. It is a nice experience, that YES, should also be on a wall in a gallery.

Samorost, Click, Gwen and Haluz are all favorites of mine. The gameplay (I use the term loosely) is relaxing and engaging. And the artwork and sound are among their elements that distinguish them from other point-and-clicks.

I echo Jay's comment that this is a "masterpiece of creativity and interactive art".

I'd love to this genre become a candidate for a JIG competition one day.

I thought that was it also but when I put in the codes it doesnt go there. It just starts at the beginning and I know I must have paid for the full version or I would not have had the codes. After a few levels it goes to the end. I guess I will just have to pay again to see if I can get further. Thanks for the help.
