I could never find the words, but that title "Machinarium Blows the Dust Off Old Genre" could not possibly say it better. Thanks, Mission!

Yes, the reviewer liked it. grin Another quote from the review:
Quote:
I'll just say that, without a single word, Machinarium did more for me than even the most epic role-playing games generally manage.

This is really something because Machinarium has got the attention of the mainstream media.

It is like getting a review from the New York Times or San Francisco Chronicle.

That's quite an achievement to get the attention of a major newspaper.

They got a great 8.0 from Gamespot too!

Well deserved.

I'm playing it right now (not too far in, maybe five or six scenes) and already I can tell that I haven't had this much fun since 80 Days. laugh
