Develop Award-nominated studio Amanita Design has announced two new point-and-click adventure projects, and has outlined plans to release work on platforms other tha Pc.

The Czech studio revealed it is working on Samorost 3 and new IP Botanicula.

At a GameCityNights event in Nottingham, the studio also discussed its interactive music video project, entitled Osada.

“We decided to create a sequel to our previous games because we like the universe and it’s open to many different ideas,” said Amanita founder Jakub Dvorský.

As explained in a CalsualGaming.biz report, Dvorský said the studio “wants to change approach in many ways” with the third Samorost game.

“Most importantly, the game will be much bigger, similar in scope to [recent release] Machinarium, and more polished.”

“We want to approach it like a music record. When you’ve heard it once, it still has a value the second time and third time,” Dvorský added.

Samorost 3 will be coming to PC and Mac, and Amanita is looking to bring it to “as many platforms as possible.”

Last year he claimed Amanita’s most recent release, Machinarium, had a brutal piracy rate of 85 per cent upwards.

Dvorský confirmed to CasualGaming.biz that Machinarium is already in production for PS3 and tablets, and hinted that their upcoming titles will follow.
