Beautiful, clever, astonishingly surreal. Some apparently-Polish flash designers have spawned the bastard child of MYST and the Hitchhiker's Guide: a little adventure game in which you must save your spacecraft/treestump from imminent collision by, among many other things, inducing the mountain hippie to smoke his bong faster and getting the squirrel to crank up the volume on his record player.

Just go try it.

Via metafilter.

update: Also, Chasm.


This is a Czech game made by a student of the University of Art and Industry. NOT Polish! And Samorost=driftwood. Nice game indeed.

I thought it was a great little puzzle game but what I really appreciated about Samorost is how surreal the environment is. I thought it was excellent how they had oversized rocks and tree stumps as worlds floating in space. Does anyone know if there is any more cool surreal stuff from the guys who made this?
