You know, the next time you’re cheerfully playing with a rubber ducky, squeaking it, splashing it, taking it for granted, I just want to remind you of the horrible stress and hazardous conditions it took to make that lovable toy. This weekend, you can pay tribute to the brave souls who toil in our nation’s rubber duck factories, by picking up a copy of Heron: Steam Machine for your iPhone, entirely free. Triangle Studios would like to give everybody a chance to try out their “frantic pipe puzzler,” and will be reducing the cost to nothing on January 23rd and 24th.
Were you aware that if the pipes were not constantly being replaced on our duck-making apparatuses, they would explode? I think there’s a lesson in this game for all of us, and “free” is always a nice cost to learn it. You needn’t wait that long, though; you can play a free flash version of Heron: Steam Machine on its website, right here.
