…okay, that may be an understatement; an utter and complete mindf*** is more like it. Amanita, independent developer of critically acclaimed point-and-clicks Samorost 1 and 2 and Machinarium, have just released their newest project, Osada, and I don’t even know what to say about it.
To call it a point-and-click is literally correct, but genre-wise, it’s more like a “point-click-and-hear-country-music-and-see-trippy-stuff”. That screenshot above isn’t even the worst of it. I guess it’s still cool as some sort of artistic endeavor, but it’s barely a game, and not what I expected from them at all. Check it out yourself here; I dare you to sit through that and not have a craving for some good old hallucinogenic pharmaceuticals.
