Machinarium now fully operational in downloadable release

With nearly mechanical precision, Amanita Design's robot-themed Machinarium released today on schedule, and the game is now available for download for PC and Mac.

In the first full-fledged adventure from the creator of the Samorost games, Machinarium puts players in the steel shoes of a robot cast out of a towering mechanical city. Solving a variety of environmental puzzles along the way, the little protagonist will need to work his way back into the city in order to save his girlfriend and stop a destructive plot by a nefarious group of thugs called the Black Cap brotherhood.

Machinarium is available at a variety of download portals such as Steam, GamersGate, and Direct2Drive, and is also offered directly from the developer's website, which includes the game's soundtrack as well.

One really great game that i have been waiting for so long. I mean this game is pure perfection and i love the atmosphere and music , puzzles and designs, all that make this beautifull game a masterpiece. Didin’t play this good game since neverhood my favorite also… A really big BIG refreshment in sea of all this call it “Adventure” games… Love it and hope they make something new soon or just announce so we can at least wait…

“Actually, now that I’ve had the chance to check out the final version personally, the Black Caps do look the same as always. It’s the city guards that wear the blue pylons. “

Oops [blushes]. Playing games all night seems to impair my vision :-)

It’s actually available for Linux and well as Windows and Mac OS X. If you buy through the official website you get all three. Other places of purchase seem to only give you the Windows version.

Actually, now that I’ve had the chance to check out the final version personally, the Black Caps do look the same as always. It’s the city guards that wear the blue pylons.

Then they’re the ones who forgot about changing their mind (in the first screenshots, the brotherhood indeed had black caps: http://adventuregamers.com/screenshot.php?id=8383 )
Oh well, I’d rather have them think about their (future) games than about press releases :-)

Well, that’s the name Amanita’s been giving me all along. Maybe they’re all colour blind? Grin

Played it yesterday, without interruption - thoroughly enjoyed it. Rather original puzzles too, and it was a nice surprise to see some games from my childhood. And with all the details in the environment and little extra touches (e.g. watching the robot dance in the water room), I’ll be sure to play this one again.
Let’s hope Amanita brings us more of this - the sooner, the better, of course; but at the same time it is not important how long the wait will be, they can take as long as they need to produce a beautiful and charming game like this.
One thing about the ‘press text’ which was copied in AG’s release text on this page: it’s no longer the ‘Black cap brotherhood’ - more like the ‘Pale-blue traffic cone brotherhood’ ;-)

Machinarium is a must play for everybody. Lovely, fun game. Is this a great year for adventures, or what. Smile

I’d be surprised if we didn’t see one eventually, but I haven’t heard of any plans to release one. Other languages, yes; English, no. Although since there’s no dialogue in the game, you wouldn’t have any trouble playing a “non-English” version if you wanted to go that route.

do you know if there are any plans for a retail box release or will this one be download only?
