Intro & Summary

A short, fun, clunky robotic romp through an underground world of tunnels. Built in the Unreal Dev Kit, it looks fantastic and is let down only by its short length. Billed as a puzzler, it's more about exploration, but happens to tie its universe together by letting you interact with different new discoveries, which happen to include many puzzles elements.

Highlights

In any other game, lack of lore, history or story would be a let down, but they help add charm to Unmechanical. It never pretends to be anything more than a short fun exploration of a cool, atmospheric world.

* Fantastic use of the Unreal Engine, lighting and the great looking 2.5D elements add tone and depth
* Pleasant simplicity and a well designed little robot, almost relaxing at times, without being boring

Mistakes

* It's common to not know what the game wants you to do next, or how to progress
* Some people will be disappointed by a short playtime and an abrupt ending

Recommendations
Unmechanical is £6.99/8.99€/$9.99 on Steam and has a short playtime of around 3 hours and very little reason to play through more than once. If getting more for your money is important to you, wait for a sale, where it goes up to -90% and is a bargain for a buck.

* Built using Unreal Dev Kit, you can access all the usual Unreal options using the console using the tilde key ~
* Unmechanical has two slightly different endings you might have missed https://youtu.be/nRcojdDiQr0?t=224

Very nice, charming and beautiful puzzle game. If you wanna develop games in Unreal Engine, this game is a good showcase.

Yet it's very short, takes about 2-3 hours. Also, doesn't have a plot. And finally, there are two endings, but they are dissapointing.

A nice game for one evening, I highly recommend taking it as a part of a bundle or with a BIG discount.

Lovely-looking game, the protagonist is given a lot of cute personality quirks, and the puzzles are varied.
HOWEVER, the problem is that all these different kinds of puzzles are forced into a simplistic control scheme awkwardly shoved into situations where it is far from convenient or logical to use it. Overall, this works fine as a tablet or smartphone title for $2 or less, not a $10 PC release.

A very sweet game. Puzzles can be difficult, but never overly frustrating. Achievements can be near impossible to get and some can't be gone back to once passed. Overall, a lovely game with just enough of a storyline to keep you hooked and make the choice at the end a tough one. I recommend using a gamepad, it makes all of the difference on puzzles requiring precision.
