More original instrumental music from really good independent games this week. We're going to have a look at some atmospheric and experimental sounding electronic music. The Glasshouse with Butterfly by Tomáš Dvořák is a track from Amanita Design's Machinarium. Machinarium is a charming point and click puzzle game that follows the story of Josef as he attempts to liberate his home city from the reign of terror penetrated under the control of a local criminal gang. The game has that beautifully hand drawn aesthetic that is also on show in Amanita Design's other games like Chuchel and the Samorost series.
Tomáš Dvořák is the in house composer for Amanita Design and his unique sound-worlds manage to sound expansive and intimate at the same time. He has mastered the art of integrating a sense of wistful wonder with melancholy and his haunting pieces have come to define the feel of many of Amanita Design's best loved releases. This entire soundtrack, in fact all of his soundtracks, are worthy of your time and if you haven't played Machinarium and you're into point and click adventures then you need to rectify that too.
