Amanita Design has released a new short video of the new game, Machinarium:

Quote:
The game's protagonist is a little robot who has been unjustly expelled to the scrap yard behind the city. Players must guide the little robot back into town to rescue his robot-girlfriend and stop the bad guys from the 'Black Cap Brotherhood' before they can bomb the central tower that houses the city's ruler.

Download the demo HERE (thanks Chief!)
The video can be seen HERE and on the Official Site you can find screenshots and more details.

The release date for digital channels (machinarium.com, Steam, Impulse,
etc.)is the 16th October 2009, if you pre-order now you will get also a pre-order pack" (5 hi-res pictures and 5 MP3 tracks from Machinarium soundtrack).

You can also preorder the game for $17.00 (this includes a "pre-order pack") from the developers if you want to support them directly. The price will be $20 once the game releases.

To preorder, click here and then click on "preorder" near the top of the screen. That will take you to the preorder page. If you then click on the "preorder now" button and get a message that your action is blocked, hold down the "ctrl" key and click again.

I pre-ordered directly from Amanita as well. I got some preview screenshots and soundtrack mp3's. I was very satisfied.

I ordered directly from them also...hey, I agree with Ana, why not support them when I can. Too many developers can't get their games out to us these days, so hey, help if I can to keep them making me HAPPY! happydance

Me too, I started my download last night then went to bed (more than 1 hour for download). Has anyone else shut off their hardware acceleration setting before starting this game? Their email recommended doing this when starting the game.
Love, Betty Lou
