PCGamer article about Amanita Design games available on Itch.io

Czech developer Amanita Design is currently holding a small sale on Itch.io. The sale runs through 3 pm Pacific this Saturday, December 9, and includes four of Amanita's best adventure games.

First up, Botanicula, a humorous tale of seedlings. We called it a different kind of adventure that quickly grows on you in our review, and it still holds up as one of Amanita's finest. It's on sale for $3 at 70 percent off.

Next there's Machinarium, a veritable steampunk sister to Botanicula. It's every bit as excellent, and is also $3 at 70 percent off.

Finally, Samorost 2 and Samorost 3 are just under $2 and $6 respectively. Samorost 3 is arguably Amanita's masterwork.

If you're hungry for more Amanita, have a gander at the official trailer for their next game: Chuchel, the story of an angry hairball and his cherry. More on that here.

Frustrated with Machinarium on ipad. Whether using touch control or curser mode, much of the time I cannot get the machine to move when it is supposed to. I end up having to repeat a lot of steps because of this. There was a post in 2014 I think with the same issue. I saw a post that they were redoing some things and rereleasing this year. Seems there shouldn’t be an issue at this point. Is it just me or what? Ideas?? Thanks.

From the "GamingOnLinux" site comes this post by liamdawe, 1 December 2017 at 12:44 pm UTC :

Amanita Design [Official Site], developer of beautiful games like Machinarium and Botanicula is another well known name to put their games up on the itch store.

They now have these titles on there which support Linux:

    Botanicula Soundtrack + Art Book
    Machinarium Soundtrack + Art Book
    Samorost 2

You can find their itch.io store page here, with links to their games. They're all on sale too, a perfect time to grab them if they still haven't picked up a copy.

As a big fan of itch.io, I'm really happy to see more well known developers put their games on it. Their store is slick and easy to use, but the icing on the cake is their speedy open source game client.

I absolutely LOVE the crackle of the Machinairum OST LP the show host is playing!
It's like hearing a fire in the hearth (heart?)   Wink

To be honest, making a comic isn't a bad idea. Something Jakub could even work on, on his own. I'd definitely want to see what happened next after they flew away in the helicopter.

Another point and click puzzler, Sam & Max, which I like a lot, started off as a comic, and then grew into an episodic game. It's cool because if you played through the game and want to see more of the story around the whole thing you can check out the comics. It would definitely be cool if Amanita did this with Machinarium, you can still put a lot of effort and thoughts into it, and yet it's still easier than making and programming a whole game.

My honest opinion. :^)

When astronomers using the Pan-STARRS1 telescope in Hawaii spotted a mysterious object dashing through our solar system on Oct. 19, they immediately knew it was something special. ~more

in my book that's what I would call a "close call" ~A  Roll Eyes

"Who says Central Europe has the market cornered on Samorost-style adventures? While Amanita Design and other regional developers may have helped popularized the style of animated adventures among photorealistic natural environments, the land Down Under can do it too, as we can see in the first details for indie Australian developer Matthew Petrak's upcoming Tala." ~link
