I got an e-mail from gog this A.M. They have a list of twenty games where you can pick any five for ten dollars. Close to half are Adventures. The sale runs for a week until next Tuesday. Nothing I want but it includes the Blackwell Bundle, 4 games that count as one selection. If you pick that one you can end up with 8 games for $10. Botanicula and Machinarium are included in the list as well.

Unmechanical and Trine are two that have excellent reviews that are on my wishlist. I played Botanicula and Mechanarium and loved them both. Good choices!

I'm in the same boat RMT. Those were the 2 games I picked and then tried to come up with the others for this special. I wanted Alan Awake, but the req's are too high for my computer. I already have the other games I would have chosen.
Good luck choosing. This is a wonderful special.

It is a great time to pick up the Blackwell Bundle, four games are included in that one selection. Legacy, Unbound, Convergence and Deception. All for two bucks.

Thanks for the reminder, OM-
I already have Botanicula and Machinarium, so it was hard to find 5 that really interested me so based on reviews I got Trine, Unmechanical, Blackwell,Alan Wake, and To The Moon
How can you go wrong at $2 a game? Has anyone played any of these-Which should I try first?

Bigmama, Machinarium, is a fun game a bit different from anything I saw before. I wrote a walk through here for Blackwell Convergence as well as a review. You do not need to play them in order but it helps. It is hard to say which one of the four blackwells is best. Voice acting is great the wise crack humor is just right. The games are on the short side but very well done. I have not played the others. When they first came out Machinarium and each Blackwell costs more than what you paid for all eight games. Have fun and enjoy.

Thanks, OM-
Machinarium looks like an interesting game-I did play the demo quite a while ago, and got it on another sale at GOG recently. So many games and not enough time to play 'em all!
The reason I chose Blackwell bundle is because the reviewers mentioned humor as well as being great games. I will read your review too.
