Serious problems with ultrawide display
As far as I can tell the only video options are fullscreen or windowed. There's no ability to set the resolution, or to set the game such that it works properly on ultrawide displays.
One screen to the right of the starting point there is a box with two levers. If I click on that while fullscreened, the box is mispositioned almost entirely offscreen, so I have to use the (annoyingly small) windowed mode to interact with it.
The game might be good (I haven't played enough to know yet) but on my display it's just frustrating. Not recommended if you have an ultrawide monitor

The game would constantly crash so I asked for a refund.
I am going to buy and download it again to check if it runs better.
I am not sure if Steam offers the option of multiple downloads of purchased games in case of any errors that may occur during the trasfer.

Mr. Space Gnome And His Magical Flute!

In the third Samorost game by Amanita Design Mr. Space Gnome makes a return. This time his job is not to save his little sausage dog, but rather to learn the mystery of the fallen flute. After learning a bit about the past of the flute Mr. Gnome prepares his new Onion ship (*gasp* No sausage-can ship?) and sails away quite easily to the nearest planet.

Throughout his about 6 or so hour adventure he discovers many-a unique puzzles, quirky and funny characters (also baddies!), reveals the past of the magical flute and even becomes a very skilled flute-player (Oh my!).

--

Keeping the art style, gameplay and music loyal to the Samorost series, I say that this game is worth every penny even if it felt quite short (~6 hours of gameplay, almost every achievement gotten).
I bought the Cosmic Edition of this game. The soundtrack was worth the pay but I wasn't too impressed with the art book (Very simple concept art but you can't expect concept art to be always fancy, right?).
The nature-inspired environments are a sight for the eyes, there are some catchy tunes in the game along with beautiful and atmospheric background scoring and the gameplay works great. A few downrights are that sometimes you have to go to another screen multiple times (ex. the infamously hard fruit puzzle). Luckily the game won't punish you for not understanding the puzzles; The Hint Book is there to guide you with clear pictures! The story's also a good one, resembling a kind of visual sci-fi novel.

As a fan of the point'n'click genre and as a person who's been playing Amanita's games for a long while, I say that this is a wonderful game for anyone who loves point'n'clickers, creative puzzles, lovely visuals and amazing & calm soundtracks.

Samorost 3 is one of the most visually striking and memorable games you'll play.

What Is It? Point-and-click adventure through a surrealist blend of nature and technology in a completely alien universe.

Graphics: Incredibly beautiful hand-drawn/photography, masterful technical skill in animations, high level of polish.

Gameplay: Exploration with lateral-thinking puzzles gating progress. Despite being even less moored in reality than Botanicula, the puzzles are grounded in consistent logic. If you are stuck, you are probably missing an observation about the world or a piece of logic.

Music: The music shows up in-game as part of the puzzles, though no music knowledge is required. As usual, Floex delivers an amazing ambient soundtrack.

Length: It took me just 3 hours to reach an ending (some friends tried it out on my account which accounts for the other 2 hours), which is far shorter than most reviews purport it to be. There are really only 4 main worlds.

Difficulty: I didn't use the hints guide and never got stuck for more than 5-10 minutes on any given puzzle. They are all fair and the majority have clever solutions. No simplistic math or pattern matching puzzles that other adventure games tend to rely on. Very lateral solutions are required at times. Playing cards is a standout, as is the very first puzzle you might encounter. This has been my favorite genre for years, and your mileage may vary with the puzzles.

Value: Approx $4/hr. I would consider replaying it as well with a friend and have about 8 achievements left to find after the credits.

Recommended for: Parents with Children, People who like 'Artistic Games', People who liked previous Amanita games, People who like Creative Puzzles

So much nostalgia. I remember playing the first two Samorost games over and over again when i was little. The two first games are very much recomended, and this one is 10 times better than those, this is a perfection of the two first games. The world is beautiful, the story is actually very good for a point-and-click, and the music is amazing. The only problem i have with this game is that it wasn't longer. I hope they make another Samorost game in the future.

Just finished this game with my gf. Certainly a good experience. Artwork is out of this world, and the puzzles are innovative. It was a bit short, but this game could've been twice as long, and still leave you wanting more.

+Artwork, with an emphases on the art.
+Extremely detailed point and click-game.
+Soundtrack is amazing
+Interpretable storyline
+Great for playing with someone.

The soundtrack to this game is incredible. I listen to it outside of finishing the game. As far as gameplay goes, you get fully immersed in the sounds and visuals, and the quirks and puzzles just kind of get you to smile. I absolutely enjoyed this game. I don't remember how many screenshots I took just because I was like, "wow this is gorgeous". Patiently waiting for a 4th installment.

Overall: immersive, beautiful, great soundtrack, good puzzles, highly recommended.

Samorost 3 is a point-and-click game by Amanita Design, who also made Machinarium and Botanicula. If you have played and enjoyed their previous games, you should absolutely buy Samorost 3; it's the studio's best by far. Samorost 3 showcases beautiful artwork in the world around you, a stunning soundtrack that helps you get immersed in the game, and puzzles that are solvable through reasoning and observation, as opposed to obscure, non-intuitive mechanics. Amanita Design has also added an achievement system that both encourages you to interact with the game world and provides some extra gameplay for those who wish to complete the game 100%. With all of the work poured into this game, it's not only Amanita Design's best game so far, but is the best point-and-click I've played to date.

As is typical for this studio, Samorost 3 completely avoids use of text/reading. I like this style, but it was a bit of a pain point when I accidentally lost all progress early in the game by reloading to the last save point. That is my only criticism of the game, and I encourage you to try out the save and reload features as soon as possible in the game to avoid that issue.

For those who played Samorost and Samorost 2, one important thing has changed for this game, which I was stoked about: no more actual human faces on characters in the game. The faces are all drawn in this installment of the series. Woohoo!

Truly loved Machinarium and was sad to have it finally end, so I was really looking forward to playing Samorost 3.

Graphics are stunning, as usual, although the main character is 2D and so doesn't seem as integrated with the world. The main problem I have, however, is that far too many of the puzzles are the mindless guess-and-test type. I often felt like a chimpanzee pushing buttons randomly until finally rewarded with a banana, sometimes not even knowing what I had done.

So if you aren't into this type of puzzle, you'd be advised to skip Samorost 3. For me, I want more logical puzzles that challenge the mind and give one a sense of accomplishment as in Machinarium.

fantastic game; amanita design can't seem to put a foot wrong. the only thing we wanted was - a little more time in the world of samorost. beautiful quirky creatures, memorable music, one of the few games in 20 years of game playing that i'd be tempted to call art.

As a grand father that has played Machinarium, Botaniucula, Samorost 1 and 2 wtih eight grand kids that love these games I am not disappointed in Samarost 3. I play through the games and then 'read' them on my laptop as 'bed time' stories with the kids. The lack of dialogue encourages the kids to create their own description of the action. It's a treat to listen to them tell what they see as they see it through the eyes of children and not my tired old eyes.

I have STEAM accounts for all three of the kids families so Iwill be buying this game three more times and it's well worth the money.

I solved the four- card game to get the jack knife. That clever puzzle will really entertain the kids.

Amanita Designs is one of my favorite studios so I hope they sell million copies of this game so I can look forward to their next product. And take your time Amanita as the kids love to go through these games numerous times!

Even if you don't have grand kids to share this game with GET IT!

I remember when I was just a little child I stumbled upon this weird game with a small white clothed gnome and his dog. That game captured my imagination and left a very happy stamp in my mind. It was only many years later, when I found out about Machinarium and suddenly I realized it had to be the same developer, that I realized the game was in fact Samorost - that bizzare game I really liked.

One can only imagine how stoked I was when I found out Samorost 3 is coming out. 30 minutes of playing have already taken me back to those places of mystery I frequented as a child. It feels as if I am reliving my earliest years.

Samorost 3 is 7 times more vibrant and beautiful, and mystical, than its incredible predecessors. It's filled with fantastic imagery, beautiful scenes, vibrant soundtrack, peculiar story, and original and unique mechanics.

I just want to thank Amanita Design for their originality and loyalism to such a unique genre, in the ever changing environment - that is the video games scene in general. Thank you for such a creative and thought provoking world, and for such a fantastic, amazingly produced game.

If you liked Machinarium or played Samorost as a child like myself, or hell, just like games that see beyond the horizon, there is no reason you won't like Samorost 3, for it excels in what it does - portray a world the wildest of minds wouldn't be able to think of. I think the price is more than fair considering the amount of love this game got and how carefully and warmly it was handled by its developers. Thank you for a once in a life time experience.
