Amanita Design Christmas Pack (Samorost & Machinarium)
« on: December 17, 2009, 06:32:39 PM »
Amanita Design, the guys behind the recently released Machinarium, is offering a superb deal on its blog. Starting today and up to Christmas Day, you can get Machinarium, Samorost2 and the soundtracks for both games, all coupled with high-res game covers, for a mere 10 bucks. No DRM and multiplatform versions (thanks to the "magic" of Flash :P).

Just another proof that random surfing in forums unearths cool things :D

a fantastic deal for fantastic games. i tried the Machinarium demo some time back but hadn't the time to commit, now seems to be a good time. thanks for the heads-up, Lashiec.

I like Machinarium, even though I have been stuck at that board game for ever now. It's the first game in over 10 years I actually bought.

I just bought the Christmas Pack!

Even though I already purchased Machinarium before, it is still a very good deal. Especially when you consider they don't put DRM or any registration scheme in their games. They seem to treat their customers as such and not as potential criminals...

Anyway, this is a nice christmas present for myself :)

Worth supporting, even though I'm pretty low on cash :)

I bought this a few days ago, mostly on impulse. While I'm not a big fan of Samorsot, Machinarium is certainly
one of the best games I've ever played, mostly because it's clearly made with a lot of love. All the little details
those guys put in the world they made are amazing and never end.

I've had Samarost for quite some time and really love it, so I just got Machinarum.  Thanks for the alert for this.

I'm having a problem, though, and wonder if anyone else has experienced it, too.  As soon as I make the first click in the third screen, my computer crashes.  I have tried this several times, and have unchecked the full screen option.  Is this a known bug?  If not, are there any suggestions for how I can get this to work?

since the game is based on Adobe Flash, you can try updating your version of Flash.

That did it.  Thanks.  Hasn't helped me much with the game, though. ;)
