Samorost series were on sale at GOG last week, both are great adventure puzzle games.
The older version is a HTML file embeds a
SWF file which requires Flash. I installed Chrome just for playing it back then. Amanita released a remastered version on 5 November 2020 and it’s a free update! Install the updated game and start a adventure begin with a guy lost his dog. Sounds familiar? No, the Gnome doesn’t use a pencil.
.pkg installers don’t work at all. The
.pkg file contains a
postinstall script, it moves the game files to
mv command does nothing somehow. You can use the following commands to extract and copy the game manually.
# extract pkg xar -xf xxx.pkg # extract Scripts cd package.pkg tar -xvf Scripts # copy game files cp -R payload /Applications/xxx.app # or run ./postinstall # clear files cd .. rm -rf package.pkg Distribution Resources xxx.pkg
This is better because I don’t see the point of requiring admin privilege just to copy a folder. And most games powered by ScummVM include and run on an older version of ScummVM, I prefer to load them on the latest version anyway.
Amanita uploaded a Samorost documentary on their YouTube channel, go check it out!
