Puzzle game Unmechanical (2012) has stunningly beautiful visuals and a great soundtrack. I enjoyed solving physic puzzles with the cute little flying robot, who can pick up stuff. Some puzzles were variations of familiar ones. Please give good old Simon a well-deserved rest, developers! I’m surprised Unmechanical is not in AG’s database.

*sigh*
So many new adventure games, I’ll never get to memorise the screenshots.
It was easy before with a couple of hundreds of those, now there are couple of thousands around and counting. Almost like books and I always felt bad about not being able to read all the books there were.

No wonder for me: they’ve just discovered Pyst (1996).
Judging by that, your game will have its turn by 2032.

It was covered in the Puzzling (mis)adventures feature.

Glad it got reviewed, it’s a nice game. The reviewer and I even agree about Simon. Smile But if it was worth reviewing, why isn’t it in the database…?

Same pic in the review! Coincidence. I got my pic from the internet. Unmechanical saves automatically (at least in my retail version, maybe it’s different on Steam?) and I didn’t feel like restarting the game just to take a few pics.

EDIT: All games should always provide the option of manual saves. I want to be able to go back to a puzzle or sequence I particularly enjoyed.

I think it’s because it’s probably not considered an adventure and more of a puzzle game? Not sure because I’ve not played it. I like those articles because they still go in depth with those games from an adventure point of view. The only problem is that the games don’t show up in the search engine.

Edit: Oh wait, I was wrong, Stanley parable and Stick it to the Man are in the database and show up in the search engine. Not sure why about Unmechanical now
