Machinarium is a completely adorable and clever game by Amanita Design about robot-type folks who inhabit a robot-style world and have to cope with robotic problems. An Android is defined as “a robot resembling a human being.” I don’t think putting these two things together is exactly a stretch, and neither does TriplePoint client Hothead Games, who has decided to release the award-winning Machinarium to Android phones. That is not a phone used exclusively by robots, so you can play too. How cool would that be, though?
From the press release:
Android tablet users can now discover the award-winning, steam punk world of Machinarium, navigating a clever little robot called Josef from the scrapheap into the city to save his robot girlfriend.
Players must use logic to solve puzzles, quests, brain-teasers, and mini-games to rid the city of the wicked Black Cap Brotherhood robots. Gorgeous hand-drawn graphics and animations bring the robot’s story to life, using unique comic bubbles and symbols to convey the plot.
Machinarium is available now on Google Play, and will be released this week on Barnes & Noble’s critically acclaimed NOOK Tablet™ and NOOK Color™, both versions priced $3.99. The game will also be available through the Amazon Appstore for Android later this month.
If you haven’t yet played Machinarium on the many platforms where it now resides, then I can only assume your lack of human wonder and aversion to fun means you are also a robot.
