    Samorost 1 is FREE, so go and give it a try! Big smile If you like it, then give #2 a try, too. Below are my comments on #2:

    OK, Samorost 2 is definitely bizarre. First of all, you only get 15 minutes to demo it (at Big Fish), but that is all you'll need to see if you like it. It reminds me of Hamlet, but with better graphics. You MUST write down the level code if you want to continue where you left off, lest you have to start over at the beginning. This is your method to save (writing down the codes)

    Spoiler:
    I got to the anteater screen, figured that I had to knock the little anteater off and pump the water whilst the adult was dealing with the little one; figured out how to get the monkey to spill the seeds in the right place, but could NOT get the water to work properly.

    Went to the walkthrough and realized that there's a cork on one of the bottles.

    I like it! I don't know how long it is, but it's a fun kind of weird

    EDIT: Just finished the demo (without looking at the walkthrough, except for that one part), and I really like it. I actually am enjoying this much more than Hamlet, as the actions you take are much more logical. Looks to be short, but fun!

    Samorost 2 (Point-and-click)

    Samorost 1 is free-to-play at the developer's website, HERE, along with several other short adventures.

    I really love games by Amanita, with Botanicula currently being by favorite.  They're quirky, they're cute, and they're fun to figure out.

    The Samorost games contain my favorite character, the space gnome, but be aware that the first two are very short, and among the first created by the company.  (See the full rundown of release dates on Amanita's wiki HERE.)  The earliest titles were made to be browser-based flash games, which is why the Samorost 2 playing area takes up a smallish area of the screen (if you have your destop set at 1920x1080, anyway.)

    The game will open up full-screen with a black background, but if you hit the Esc button, it will play windowed.  Gameplay itself consists of finding clickable areas, then figuring out the correct sequence -- and sometimes timing -- to allow you to progress.

    There are seven levels to complete, and as you start each one, you will be given a level code so that you can return to that area if you need to turn off the game, or just feel like revisiting.  You can find the walkthrough HERE, and the level codes are the first thing you'll see, so no worries if you don't want spoilers. Wink

    In closing, Samorost 2 is a short, fun romp through one of Amanita's earliest games.  I personally would not pay full price for the game unless I was buying directly from the developers in order to support them, and recommend getting it on sale.  Definitely looking forward to Samorost 3!
