Have any of you guys played Machinarium? I've been playing it like all night. It's pretty wild.

About forty minutes of torture! But I loved it. I know what movie I'm watching tonight!

I love the steampunk look and art, but I just can't get into it. I always suck at these sort of puzzle games.

I haven't gotten far in the game, but the animation is awesome. Those hints are great too. The first ones had me laughing out loud.

It was on offer recently as part of the MacUpdate bundle $49.

Pathfinder was also included as part of the bundle and I'd been thinking of grabbing that for a while at $40 So it seemed a bit of no brainer not to grab Pathfinder and Machinarium. It saved me $10 off the cost of the two and I also got the rest of the bundled apps, although I'm not sure if I'll use any of those.

What a fantastically stylish little game. Really reminds of of '9'.

Excellent stuff...

I played the demo and it was pretty fun. I like how it make you think (like MacGyver).



Here is a silly little game I've been playing. Go Ollie

It's freeware, but the quality is fantastic. It will take weeks to finish all of the levels. BTW it works with SL.
