I'm thinking it can't take the load (at least, I can't get it to). But I'm hoping to play it soon.

Server's dead. feh.

Must. Get. High. And. Play.

Ohhhhhhhh.

Okay, I'm gonna save this for later. Like a pint of my favorite ice cream. Or some high-quality porn.

This will be something to be savored.

Oh, and if anyone can tell me what any of the music from the first one is, I'll be eternally grateful. Particularly the mellow tune on the level where the squirrel is listening to records.

I just finished "chapter 1" of Samorost II. If you want to continue on with "Chapter 2" it'll cost you $9.90... and a 24mb download. FYI.

If anyone's bought part II: Is it longer than part I?

The servers not totally dead, you just have to be verrry patient.

Awesome - but why do these things are always posted the day before I have a paper due?

Okay, I bought the second level, but after downloading the program, I can't get it to install. I get this error:

C:\WINDOWs\SYSTEM32\AUTOEXEC.NT. The system is not suitable for running MS-DOS and Microsoft applications. Choose 'Close' to terminate the application.

Can anyone help me run it?

Great! I love samorost! Now, to find $9.90...

If you follow the jayisgames link, you're not alone in having problems running part 2. I'm going to wait for his comprehensive review of 2 before plunking down any cash.

Cool -- I like games where you don't die and have to start over at the beginning. I'm old and impatient.

This game is cool.

Evidently they just posted a bugfix for part 2...

It still isn't working for me.

Ok, I hate to ask, but I'm stuck in the ogre's TV room. Any hints?

Nevermind, got it.

lazylaces is also a great resource for casual web games, particularly point and click adventures.

Eek! Trying again: point and click adventures

Oh well, just paste the URL: http://www.lazylaces.com/search.asp?s=point'n'click

Except that didn't work either! *cries*

Replace apostrophes (') with double quotes (")!

I'm stuck at the part where you click "play" and the screen goes black and stays black for like 15 minutes. Any help?

Seriously, the strain on the server just goes to show you how popular the first one was. Guess I may have to wait a bit and see if this works when the traffic dies down.

They sent out a new installer, so I'm able to run the purchased level!

God Spork! Don't leave us in suspense.. Is it any good?!?

so far, it's good...more small puzzles everywhere...i'm stuck in the well tho. (it does load really slowly but it's gorgeous, like the older one)
posted by amberglow at 11:15 AM on December 11, 2005


good, but really short.
posted by amberglow at 12:32 PM on December 11, 2005


and if you haven't played it before, the first game is awesome as well.
