Amanita Design previously celebrated the 15th anniversary of Samorost 2 with a surprise mobile release in addition to a huge update to the PC version. Samorost 2 was never on mobile before that and it followed the 2016 released Samorost 3 ($4.99) but many including myself wondered if the original Samorost 1 would hit mobile. Jakub Dvorsky of Amanita Design recently confirmed that the original Samorost, Samorost 1 will be coming soon to the App Store and Google Play. Today, the point and click adventure game that originally released in 2003, has hit iOS, Android, and PC platforms for free. Samorost 1 has you directing a small gnome while solving puzzles and brain teasers that play out as an adventure story. Check out the newly updated official website of the game here. This new release of Samorost 1 even features enhanced graphics and new music by Floex. Watch the new Samorost 1 launch trailer below:
Samorost 1 was originally created by Jakub while he was a student at the Academy of Arts, Architecture, and Design in Prague. I’m glad that it is now also available easily on modern PC and mobile platforms completing the Samorost trilogy. When the mobile port was announced, I speculated that Amanita Design would likely announce a release date soon or just shadow drop it. The latter happened and you can download Samorost 1 on the App Store for iOS here and Google Play for Android here for free. If you’d rather get it on PC, check it out on Steam here and itch.io here. Samorost 1 follows Samorost 2, Pilgrims and Creaks from the developer. I’m still hopeful that Happy Game from Amanita Design hits iOS alongside the other platforms in a timely manner either through a standalone release or Apple Arcade.
