Players help a gnome avoid a cataclysmic collision between the gnome's home planet and a giant spaceship by solving screen-based puzzles that are linked together to provide a narrative. Best of all, it's freely available to play at the Amanita Design website (

Author's comments:

This is a single-segment run of «Samorost» done in 4 minutes, 29 seconds and 600 on PC (made on Flash). Run starts with the very first action made, run ends with the last action made (click on valve).

In the section with ant-eater it is faster to move plank for ants to use it as a bridge as soon as possible. That way second ant is eaten by ant-eater just in time when main character approaches stairs.

If door opening button on the "elevator" is pressed to fast (double tapped) door won’t be opened and player is forced to wait some time for the whole thing to reset.
