Samorost 2

Samorost is a browser-based, point-and-click, puzzle-adventure game produced by Jakub Dvorsky in 2003. Players guide a tiny gnome-like character around a series of quirky, organic environments, solving simple puzzles along the way. Gameplay is amusing, atmospheric, and gently paced. Samorost 2, released in 2005, follows a similar format and requires the rescue of the gnome's pet dog, kidnapped by peculiar-looking aliens at the start of the game.
