Samorost 3, an adventure puzzle game by Anamita design, follows a curious space gnome who uses the powers of a magic flute to travel across the cosmos in search of its mysterious origins. Visit nine unique and alien worlds teeming with colorful challenges, creatures and surprises to discover, brought to life with beautiful artwork, sound and music.
The little gnome's horn sounds like a clarinet. He lives in a world of floating planets made of various natural pieces, a world full of creatures that communicate through sound and the player progresses through the game solving sound based puzzles.
Like other brilliantly composed soundtracks of Anamita games, such as Machinarium, the magical soundtrack of Samorost 3 is a blend of live acoustic instruments and electronica, with handpan like organic bell tones and ambient / chill percussion / beats.
The water wheel well organ is a gorgeous instrument that you play with an 8 note controller to play the melody.
A mouse that lives in one of the instrument’s pipes sings a song that you can mimic to get an achievement .
Each achievement in the game has its own sound. There’s a section in the menu that has all the achievement symbols that you can click on to spin them to mix their sounds together. All of them together make quite a busy song but a few of them together make fun music mixing.
Speaking of which : There’s a musical pond near the gnome's lighthouse that is fun to play with and there is a band of lizards that sing a song together based on how you manipulate the plants in the pond next to them.
The world of Samorost 3 is full of communication through emotional sound, no words needed.
The bug in the picture below hums tones from its antenna when you strum them like the strings of a harp.
Pretty much every thing you click on makes a sound and then you have a gorgeous, creative soundtrack by Tomas "Floex" Dvorak.
Samorost 3 is a very fascinating, beautiful, musical and creative sound puzzle game to play. You can download it here.
