Amanita Designs: Video Games for a third category of gamers

The independent studio Amanita Designs is responsible for Machinarium (http://machinarium.net/demo/) and Botanicula (http://amanita-design.net/games/botanicula.html). Both games are point’n’click adventure games and propose a very unique experience based on amazing stories and graphics.

This raises the question: who are those games for?
Not for hardcore gamers: this could not be further from a MMORPG
Not for the casual gamers either: there is no scoring, no multiplayer, and you don’t have to throw birds at pigs.

Those games are great because they really promote Video Games as an art. Not a simple sport or way to kill time. Those represent actual experiences that are as legit as books or movies.
