As often happens, I found myself browsing a fairly random assortment of websites yesterday, ending up at Destructoid‘s review of a new point-and-click puzzle adventure named ‘Machinarium‘ from independent Czech developers Amanita Design. Intrigued by the review I visited the demo version; shortly thereafter I was buying the full game (it’s not much, around £12.50). Having played the first few levels, it was definitely money well spent.

The world of Machinarium is realised by way of beautifully drawn backdrops – and they come alive with tiny details; it definitely feels like a well-established place. Other people have written far better reviews than I could hope to produce, so I’ll just say that it’s got traces of the best point-and-click adventures of old, mingled with the atmosphere -and puzzles- of the Myst series, along with a smattering of subtle humour.
