Whether you watched Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure back in the day, or whether you just really enjoyed the video for OK GO’s “This Too Shall Pass,” at some point in your life you’ve probably had a really great idea for a Rube Goldberg device. Light a match to snap a string to drop a bucket on a see-saw to fling a cat into a balloon to drop a paperweight onto — well, there’s a reason you never built this idea in real life, clearly. But why should that stop you from sharing your untapped genius with the world? TriplePoint client Viva Media wants your crazy creations to get out there into the world, and have added the “Golden Gears” level editor into their Rube Goldberg game Crazy Machines.
Now, if you want to show your friends just how quickly a magnet can accelerate a toy truck into a pile of china vases, well, that’s your right as a crazy person. Build puzzles, share ‘em, download ‘em and play other puzzles, and earn the right to unlock even crazier challenges. Behold!
Golden Gears is out now, so watch for flying bowling pins that are on fire.
