Samorost 3 is now available on iOS

Whimsical point-and-click adventure Samorost 3 is now for £3.99 / $4.99.

The peculiar Czech puzzler is the latest outing by Machinarium and Botanicula developer Amanita Design. It follows the exploits of a space-faring gnome as he cruises the cosmos restoring order to the galaxy.

Don’t let the “3” in the title throw you off, as Samorost 3 functions well as a standalone product. The story is told completely non-verbally and the plot between games isn’t serialised.

Samorost 3 audio recordings are more ridiculous than Samorost 3

Samorost 3 is a very peculiar game, albeit an immensely charming one. The non-verbal throwback to point-and-click adventures of yore is best known for its enchanting visual style and bizarre audio. And now developer Amanita Design has released a video showing us how these crazy sound effects were produced.

Surprisingly, much of it was a cappella work with voice actors inherently making ridiculous faces to emote the correct notes.

There’s also a lollipop being used to strum a pair of banjos, just to ensure that sweet lollipop sound. At one point, a cello is subtly manipulated with a paperclip for reasons I cannot understand.
