For those interested here's the amazon.de German Box Cover.
The hi-res cover you can enlarge is actually made out of multiple smaller parts held together by the means of a script. You can't simply copy & save it.
Therefore I've thrown all those parts together:

Cute box art Smiley Would love to buy it but in english, not german. My guess is that this version has been translated.


Quite a shame that it says "Von den Machern von Edna Bricht Aus und The Whispered World" as in "From the makers of Edna Breaks Out and The Whispered World" on the box. Although Daedalic Entertainment made both of those games (I'm playing The Whispered World at the moment and it's great) they certainly didn't make Machinarium so it's a bit of a misleading information but a very clever and nasty promotion from their side. The Amanita logo is almost invisible from all those symbols and boxes. Plus, it doesn't even say anything about Samorost 2 or the additional audio content.
Then again, it might only be a part of the deal that Amanita made with Deadalic to publish the game.

I'm interested whether there are plans to release the same box and content in english Huh

Yep, exactly my thoughts kind Sir. I wanted to add this to my post but the forums were incredibly slow yesterday...

It's very misleading and not paying much credit to the real authors *sigh* but what do you want this is a Publisher they can throw pretty much anything on their cover Tongue

It might still be worth it despite the translation. The only words seem to be in the menu, and you could work out what they are from the demo.

maybe it's the german habit of occupying?
just joking, i'm german myself.
but i think i programmed a nice game series with samorost.  Grin

and i really think they did something unfriendly with that statement on the cover. can't be in the interest of amanita.

Back in June JD wrote: "the boxed version will be released this fall in Russia, Germany, Switzerland and Austria.", referring to Deadalic, then he continued, "we are now negotiating also other regions."  

From that I think we can assume that some other publisher will be responsible for the English version.

Ah, now that you mention it... that post rings a bell. Thanks. Although I already have Samorost 2 boxed version and pre-ordered Machinarium as well, I'm gonna wait for that special edition in english Smiley Don't forget to let us know when you have further details. Nobilis, Atari or Paradox might be interested in publishing the game. They seem to support indie developers all the time.

yes, i remember that sentence too and that was one of the reasons i pre-ordered the non-boxed version, but well.. after playing the demo i would be very angry with myself when i would have to wait any second longer than nessecary for the whole game Smiley

but i so hope that the negotiations will get us the english boxed version with soundtrack as well

Is there any new information about an English version? Specifically, is Amanita Design currently negotiating with any distributor to publish a boxed version in the United States? Just curious...

here's simple cover from Russian publisher:

hi everybody interested in English boxed version,
we hope to publish some nice boxed special edition version in the future on our own probably, because it seems publishers (especially in US) are not interested in adventure games anymore.

What a shame... but LucasArts seems to start out again in this genre with Secret of Monkey Island Special Edition also Telltale.
