[Update] In addition to being prepped for WiiWare, Machinarium is being readied for release on PSN later this year. Amanita also has its eyes on tablets, with the BlackBerry PlayBook the surprising primary focus over Apple's iPad. Microsoft passed on the game last year, so an XBLA iteration is not expected.

[Original Story] The creative types over at Amanita Design have been making games for years, but gained massive visibility as a studio only recently with the release of adventure title Machinarium.

The studio shows no signs of slowing down, having just announced three new titles currently in development. Check out the details below.

Osada: Spearheaded by Amanita animator Vaclav Blin and composer Simon Ornest, Osada is described as an interactive music video boasting a kaleidoscope of real photos and surreal imagery. The game will be free to download in just a few weeks.

Botanicula: Another Amanita animator – Jara Placy – is at the helm of this project. Botanicula is a point-and-click adventure title that tasks you with leading five tree dwellers on a mission to save the last seed from a parasitic foe. Botanicula is slated for release at the end of 2011.

Samorost 3: Amanita’s primary project, Samarost 3 is a continuation of a series of point-and-click flash titles, and promises to be much larger in scope and even more polished than its predecessors. The game is too early in development for visuals, but we’ve grabbed a screen from Samorost 2 to show off what can be expected.

Any of the above concepts sound particularly intriguing?
