Amanita Design's Newest Game, Osada, is a Bit of a Headscratcher

By Allen Park

April 6, 2011

…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.

His focus is on indie games specifically, valuing gameplay and ingenuity over sparkly visuals and ridiculous gimmicks. When he's not geeking out over the newest art game, he's out toning his sexy, sculpted shoulders while surfing epic 1.5ft waves, or having a good time with local, high-gravity microbrews.
