"we’ve added the wild bees to the Bridge level in Samorost 3, a little animation hint."  ~Amanita Design FB post


Mod comment: This must be what the 03/07/2017 Version 1.4.463 Android update was for.  I have no confirmation how to update the game on other platforms.  Any ideas forum friends?  Please post any additional information you find.  ~A

Thanks Priyma.
I now see that on 20 March Amanita Design posted the news that the "spirits bug" (where all the visuals of the spirits appearing after playing the clarinet looked wrong at some resolutions) was also fixed.  http://steamcommunity.com/app/421120/discussions/0/1843493219428128770/  and  http://steamcommunity.com/app/421120/allnews/

And I think I now understand (from this post by Lamkin) how someone that bought the game from Amanita Design's store (which uses the Humble Widget) can continue to get updates as more bugs get fixed, but I'm not certain how that would work.  Do you have to keep checking the download link you were sent to see if there's been an update or are update announcements sent to every purchaser?

Edit:
hmm.  I'm beginning to see the value of having a Steam account.  Without one you can not take advantage of the  "paper card with printed unique Steam keys for Samorost 3 Cosmic Edition…"   I'll bet that's how players that bought the Box can download updates as they come in.

Yep, you have to keep checking the download link to see if there has been an update; if there has, you'll see a red 'NEW' alongside the date of the most recent update. Not a very efficient system, in my opinion. One thing I think would help quite a bit would be if they also listed the current version number; that way you could compare that with the version you have.

Yeah, Steam is awesome in that regard...every game you have installed is kept updated automatically every time Steam is launched.
