Samorost is an adventure by the Czech studio Amanita Design. The game was created using FLASH technology. At the same time it is completely free of charge and is played from the browser level.
Players take on the role of a friendly alien living in a giant root suspended in space. One day, looking through a telescope, he notices that a giant asteroid is heading towards his home. Our hero instantly jumps into his spaceship and goes to the surface of the asteroid. There he will have to find a way to change the trajectory of the flight so as to save his root from extinction.
The game is a minimalist adventure with a point and click interface, so the fun is mainly about solving puzzles. Samorost consists of a series of screens filled with interactive objects. Our task is to use them in such a way as to enable the alien to move to the next location. The game does not offer any equipment system and does not allow direct control of the main character's movements. In reality, therefore, we are dealing with a series of puzzles tied together by a simple storyline.
The strong point of Samorost is the audio-visual binding. Graphics offers an unusual combination of elements drawn with appropriately modified photographs. This provides a unique atmosphere that fits in perfectly with the story being told. The party is further enhanced by the atmospheric soundtrack composed by Tomáš Dvořák.
