4.8/5 (422 votes)

Step into another surreal world created by Amanita Design (Samorost). With eight totally separate environments, Questionaut feels like a cohesive whole. It's like stepping into a story book and becoming one of its characters. And thanks to Questionaut's powerful imagery, it feels like a living universe that continues to exist even after you've shut down your browser. Just delightful.

Questionaut's Diary

Questionaut's Diary, Page 1

My Thought Air Balloon has been itching for a test run for a few days now, and today I finally got a chance to test it out. My wife's hat was carried away by a bubble, and I volunteered to fetch it. Now I'm on my way across the landscape of islands. I can't wait to test the filling procedure.

Questionaut's Diary, Page 2

I just landed on a novel little island. An eccentric scholar was lost in reading while his wife typed feverishly, presumably to create more books for him to read. It must have been a happy marriage. I had to unplug his reading lamp to get his attention, but when I did, he was quite cooperative. We traded knowledge concerning literature and the written word, and my Thought Air Balloon filled up in no time. Now I'm off again. Maybe I'll visit him again someday to read a book or two.

Questionaut's Diary, Page 3

This time around I landed on a peculiar figure-eight-shaped island where a single tree grew. It bore buds in the form of pluses and minuses, and before my eyes an insect-keeper sent out a series of number-flies to pollinate the buds. The insect-keeper turned out to be a math specialist, so we had a nice discussion about arithmetic and so forth. The knowledge we shared was sufficient to fill the Thought Air Balloon once more, and I bid him farewell. Maybe the next time I come there, I'll talk to him about what it's like to raise number-flies...

Questionaut's Diary, Page 4

The places I arrive at are getting more and more peculiar. This time I landed on a land populated by nothing but animals. After a cat jumped between branches, a small bird plucked a worm out of the ground. A flower then grew, which a rabbit jumped over and munched on a leaf of, and then an owl flew over to me and spoke to me. Not only did he speak in words I could understand, but he was very well learned in the field of biology. Unusual for an owl, but very beneficial for the Thought Air Balloon's fuel supply. Someday I'll ask him where he got all that knowledge.

Questionaut's Diary, Page 5

My Thought Air Balloon touched down near where a surveyor was inspecting the hemispherical island with a weight on a string. I picked up a key and unlocked a drawer, in which a soccer ball was sitting. The surveyor came down from his post to kick away the soccer ball, at which point I swiped his key and unlocked another drawer, which contained a third key. The drawer that key unlocked contained a glass of soda, and it wasn't until the surveyor began to drink the soda that he really noticed me. I suppose I should've expected him to be a geometry specialist, but the Thought Air Balloon runs on any subject, so I didn't really care. Where will I land next...

Questionaut's Diary, Page 6

This was a particularly cold island, covered in ice. I broke off an icicle and stuck it in a gigantic flask, which resided above a Bunsen burner which I lit and turned to full power. When the icicle melted and then evaporated into steam, it drove a windmill which rose a lid. An ice skater jumped out, skated around, and then stopped to chat with me. His knowledge of chemistry and state-changes was perfect fuel for the Thought Air Balloon. I wonder if he'll teach me how to ice-skate the next time I come by here?

Questionaut's Diary, Page 7

The resident of this island reminded me of that book-reading old man on that earlier island. This man was busy trying to sort out data he was gathering from something or other. After I helped him out, we had a chat about graphs, charts, and probability, and my Thought Air Balloon filled up quite nicely. I suppose I could learn a thing or two from him about data management... but that will have to wait until another day. I've got a hat to save.

Questionaut's Diary, Page 8

This island's electrical system was in disrepair. I fixed it up, and its single resident, who seemed fond of sunbathing in its bright light bulb, was more than happy to talk with me about the science of sound, light, and electricity. He knew so much about it that my Thought Air Balloon filled up in no time, and I bid farewell. All I have left to say is, I'd hate to be him if that big light bulb burned out.

Questionaut's Diary, Page 9

Two folks in white were hard at work on this island here, sorting out sentences by chopping out words and pulling out stray punctuation marks. I moved a pot over to find a valve wheel, and used it to stop the flow of letters they were working on. They seemed happy to have a break, and we discussed the finer points of grammar and punctuation, a topic that made excellent Thought Air Balloon fuel. Now I'm ready for the last leg of my journey. Hat, here I come!

Questionaut's Diary, Page 10

At last, my wife's hat is back in safe hands. It's a bit of a shame that I lost the Thought Air Balloon as I fetched it, but I don't really care, and neither does my wife. What matters is that I did it! My journey will be one I'll remember for a long time.

Forgive me for all this. I love to let my creative streak out sometimes.

The game is gorgeous, but would be ten times better if those pesky questions were nuked from orbit. Yes, yes, I know, the point of the game is to educate, but still.. Amanita Design's games sorta transcend spoken or written word, and these quiz questions just stick out like a sore thumb in this lovely atmospheric world.

Also, I've found a smallish bug. If you pick up the pot at the last level just as the dude is going up in a balloon, the cursor disappears. Not a biggie, but could frustrate some kids who might not be able to finish the game because of it.

Here's how to get level 4 to launch:

Click the key that is dangling off the left side of the island, and use it to unlock the left-most drawer.


Click the drawer to open it, and while the little guy is going and kicking the soccer ball away, fetch the key he was sitting on.


Use the key to unlock the next drawer from the left, open it, click the box to open it, and collect the next key.


Use this last key to unlock the next drawer, click it open, and watch the little guy come to get a drink. Now you can get him to ask you questions.



This is my first time with spoiler tags, so I hope I didn't botch them too badly.

This is amazing! Lucky for me, I only missed one question--and I disagreed with the "correct" answer, as it is something I teach at the college level. Well, I can't account for what they teach in British grammar school.

Thank you thank you thank you! I just replayed Samorost a week or two ago, and hoped they would come out with something new.

It was a neat game, I enjoyed it very much. I wish that MY school quizzes were this much fun to solve back then! :-) Amanita Design did a great job bringing Samorost-like gameplay and quizzes together.

Most questions were solvable simply by remembering school knowledge, though some relied on UK culture, which posed some difficulty for me.

Like, how many liters is 2 pints. Gosh! Why don't they ask about other obscure units like bushels or gills while they're at it? :/

Fortunately, Google bridged the cultural gap. :)
Also, like dsrtrosy above, I've also encountered some questions where one could dispute the "correct" answer.

There was one question about which material lets light through. Both "translucent" and "transparent" were amongst the possible answers, but both of these materials let light through; the difference is only their capacity to do so.

Thanks for doing a great review on this game! (Psst... Psychotronic... you might want to correct that typo about "Samarost" ;) )

I was taught British English, and I STILL had some trouble with a couple of questions, but not enough to make it any less fun. Lovely little gem =)

Like, how many litres is 2 pints. Gosh! Why don't they ask about other obscure units like bushels or gills while they're at it? :/
I believe the US uses pints too, although apparently they're different sized pints to UK ones (16 fluid ounces as opposed to 20). Since we still have a weird mix of metric/imperial measurements in this country (metres but miles? Buh?) it's useful stuff for kids to know.

Anyway, lovely game! Really enjoyed the mix of quiz questions with "click to make stuff happen" games. Beautiful.

When we became metric (ha!)..I remember " A litre of water's a pint and three quarters"
I buy petrol in litres but my car will show me miles per gallon...Just as well, as us old fogeys can't relate to kilometres per litre!

Wow, what an artist. The music is amazing, the atmosphere is beautiful...I never wanted to get that hat...Who knew multiple choice could be fun? I loved the last level

The guys chopping and seperating the unneeded pieces in the sentence...wow!

And I found my new favorite quote...
one of the wrong choices:

"by light reflecting off our eyes and entering the tree"

I think I may have to turn it into a song...after asking permission of course ;)

This was a wonderful game, and even for an 18 year-old like myself, this game cased me to use parts of my brain that I thought I didn't have to use anymore! (like the mathematics, and such) Thanks for sharing this with us!

I heartily enjoyed this game. Questions were pretty simple but I still missed one or two (the part of my brain that holds information from my school days has obviously atrophied.) The animation and music are amazing.

I forgot about tags so my post was half eaten. :P What I meant was after I played Questionaut, I immediately picked up Flash and tried to make a point 'n click adventure game. My first ever game idea! I know nothing of game design and animation... Er... But, as I said, it made me try my hardest for a few weeks.

Love this game! I like how it got me thinking a bit. I love their style and we don't have to pay to get the whole thing! (Playing small parts of Somarost (sp?) was still fun though) Very nice game, I'm going to send it to my pals.

Music was great, graphics were great, characters were cute, and the puzzles weren't too hard, though some of the questions were a bit simple, but I think this is prolly made for younger audiences. Still fun though.

Ah, found out how to do Level 7 for those who are confused. I was afraid I'd get stuck without a walkthrough. Been trying hard not to use the walkthrough, though I had to use it on the animal planet.

HINT:

Look at the -8- squares on the machine and then look at the -8- lines coming out of the rays on the left.

Don't get it? Answer:

Starting from top left... Yellow, green, green, blue, blue, blue, red, red, red, red. 1 Yellow cause 1 yellow line coming out of side, 2 green cause 2 green lines coming out of side, ect.

Alright. The walkthrough didn't help a bit. I need help on stage 5.

I put the big ice shard in the jar thing, I lit a match and made the burner light, I melted the shard, and now nothing! No person, and NO evaporation. I have already tried this before..

For azziebon, who's having trouble on stage 5...

Maybe the water isn't getting hot enough to evaporate...

Did you notice that you can turn the gas valve in either direction?

Hopefully you didn't just turn it off. If you did, though, at least you have an unlimited supply of matches.

Did you notice that you can still turn the gas valve in either direction, even if you've already turned it on?

And if you're still stuck:

Turn the valve once more in the same direction you turned it to turn the gas on. The flame will burn hotter, and the water will begin to boil and eventually produce enough steam to move the turbine and lift the plug.

As for me, I got stumped on level 6.

I had figured out

that I could click on the little square windows below the guy to change the colour of them

and

that there were numbers on the satellite dishes

but I couldn't figure out what one had to do with the other. (I thought

the binary ones and zeroes coming out of the horn were

a fantastic red herring... in retrospect! Before I finally figured out what I was doing wrong, that just added to the frustration.

Someone had offered a spoiler-tagged solution further up which mentioned

there being eight square windows beneath the guy which corresponded to the eight lines on the satellite dishes

-- which had me ready to beat my head against my monitor, because

there are of course ten windows, and four doesn't divide neatly into ten,

which was the very point I was stuck on and which had me looking at the walkthroughs and other hints here in at all.

But then I said to myself, 'Wait a minute. What

lines

?' And then I went back and looked, and lo and behold, there were

a different number of coloured lines going into each dish. The colours I'd noticed, and the numbers on the dishes, but

somehow I'd missed that detail.

Once I saw that

there are ten lines: one yellow, two green, three blue and four red

I had no trouble figuring out what to do.

(Although I don't think, contrary to what someone else posted about this level, that the order in which the colours go is important.)

So basically the solution was just "snaking" me (as in "if it was a snake, it would've bit me" i.e. it was right in front of me) but I figured I'd leave some clues for others, since I hope I'm not the only visitor to this site so thick as to have not figured it out even with all the hints already provided. Or, at worst, perhaps I've provided some measure of schadenfreude amusement to my fellow site visitors...

Finally, about page three of SonicLover's (fabulous!) Questionaut's Diary: Surely the author meant to refer to the insects as num-bees?

The answer to one question in vocabulary was wrong. It asks you which punctuation is wrong, I chose what I thought was the wronger of the two, but they told me WRONG answer! I'm pretty sure that you cannot use apostrophes in place of quotation marks.

I would have to say I love this game were it not for the fact that I couldn't replace the match in the fifth level. It's driving me nuts whenever I forget to grab a step and have to reload the game completely to make it work.

I just tried it, here's what I got: http://images.jayisgames.com/questionaut_level_7.jpg

My guess is you haven't flipped the little switch in the lower left that directs all the current to the big lightbulb. Then and only then will the little guy come out to sunbathe.
