Fantastic game, really enjoyed playing it! I am at the moment doing a game-analysis as a school-exam of Samorost 3, and a very popular discourse is of course the gender-issues when analysing games. I am simply wondering why all the main characters are male or what would be closest attributed to male? I see some arguing that the space-gnome and hero of the game is genderless, but I am not sure I fully agree on this. Off the top of my head, the only female character I can remember is one of the monkeys having a bath. Why is this? Is it perhaps a subtle gameplay rhetoric I am simply not picking up on? Curious to know!

Coincidence, maybe? Game creators usually don't consider such issues as gender balance or whatsoever, and male characters maybe were more fitting. On top of that, Amanita D. was maybe
so passionate about the developement of the game that they didn't notice such a detail. Roll Eyes
