Contraption Maker Zombie Update

With Halloween coming up, it made sense to put out a suuuper spooky update for you guys! This free update adds new parts, scenery, puzzles, and more. Check out Zombie Tim, a fun new part that chases Tim for his delicious brains. This update also adds guidelines to lasers so you know exactly where they are aimed before you even run your contraption!



New Parts
  • Zombie Tim: He shuffles around looking for brains, and will follow Tim if he's near. He can turn human Tim into a zombie if he catches him. Being a decaying zombie makes him fairly fragile. He can easily "splat" or "fry" in a bunch of different ways.
  • Braaaaiiiins: Zombie Tim loves brains. He will stop chasing Tim if there are bains nearby. There is also a "Tim Part" version of this that must be picked up and dropped by Tim.
  • Pumpkins: Use these to decorate, or roll them around your contraptions. You can attach a rope to the top to swing them around. If a pumpkin is hit too hard, it will break.



Guidelines
This is a nice new feature designed to cut down the amount of times you have to start and stop a puzzle. Now, any lasers or parts that move will show you their trajectory when selected. This means that you can line up lasers exactly where you want before having to run the contraption, fail, and try again!

Guidelines can be set to passive (shown when a part is selected), active (shown when a part is held), and off. You can adjust the guideline mode in the settings menu.



New Puzzles
5 new official puzzles have been added to show off some of the new parts included with the update.



New Scenery & Music
A new "spooky" scenery set and a new song to go along with it have been added.

Assorted Fixes
  • Add copy&paste support for TB to osx
  • Made sure that projected parts don't mess up goal parts
  • Fixed crash bug when target goal part was deleted while contraption was running
  • Made sure rope damping of attached parts only happens when approriate (updated physics version for this one)
  • Did some more required clean up when parts are deleted
  • Add an animated "colorizing text" to status bar
  • Fixed bug where Tinker would behave differently between runs because mAlwaysSetDesiredAngle was being incorrectly set.
  • Fix cppcheck
  • Fixed cannon so that the cannonball is created with the correct id.
  • Made sure all touching shapes wake up when a shape's verts change
  • Fix to script engine check so that it doesn't crash
  • Fixed grammar in Game Over dialog.
  • Made sure that both ropes and belts don't try to project or stop projecting part location in editor
  • Fixed belts so they don't try to project their path (causing a crash in Windows)
  • Fixed level manager mutex so multiply levels in separate window never have problems.
  • Fixed call to remove part which doesn't need second parameter.
  • Fixed crash bug related to Toolman Tim items being added/removed from art list
  • Fixed up quite a few animation ids that were duplicates of artwork ids
  • Added on part deleted method and fixed parts that need to know when other parts are deleted
  • Fixed Toolman Tim so he tells the difference between vision sensor shape and whistle sensor shape so that he doesn't always attract Tinker.
  • Made collision shapes debug lines update correctly when physics is active

Build-Off #2 Results



After a tough judging period, we have our results for Build-Off #2! We had way more submissions than our first Build-Off, which was great. Not only were there more submissions, the quality was through the roof!

Just like last time, don't worry if you didn't make the top 3 as we will continue to do more of these contests. I said this before and I will say it again, I wish there was some way to pick all of these as top 3 finishers. There was so much creativity and effort put into these!

3rd place: The Kidnap of Tinker, by DancingSlime
http://youtu.be/VkupMYSLtik
This contraption tells quite the tale. Tinker is kidnapped from Tim and run through a secret laboratory. Tim has to try and save him at the last minute before he is destroyed once testing is over.

2nd Place: Tinker's Costume Showoff, by The Governor Penguin
http://youtu.be/rb-1Lq6cU3Y
This was an interesting take on a contraption. Instead of a big, complicated, convoluted creation, it is a costume show put on by Tinker. Clever use of the scenery tool really showed off the dog in a way we had never seen before.

1st Place: Escaping from the lab, by evajeva
http://youtu.be/t5c_2Ga0NRk
Quite an epic contraption, so much going on here! Watch as Tim and Tinker try to escape from the lab. This contraption does a great job of using almost all of the Tinker related parts and behaviors. This is one of those contraptions that you really should watch a few times to catch all of the cool things going on.

Congrats to our winners! I will send you developer messages on your Workshop submission pages and we will get your prizes to you.

I want to give a second huge congrats to everyone that entered. Again, the quality of submissions was so amazing, it definitely wasn't easy to judge and pick the winners. See you all next time!

Very Interesting game. You are able to feed a cat by dropping a ball to turn on the electric cat feeder and then publish it directly through youtube on your gaming channel.
I said I would never write another game "review", but the option to publish your recorded game directly to Youtube or download it and edit for Youtube is great.
There is also an extra copy to gift to a friend ( 2 copies 1 price )
I am sure I will be playing this offline on my laptop when I am away and cannot acess the internet.

The original creators of The Incredible Machine have returned to bring a childhood favorite back from the dead. SO MUCH YES.

The Incredible Machine is a physics puzzle game. It's not just just any physics puzzle game, though; it was the first! Before Scribblenauts, before World of Goo, before Garry's Mod, even before all those crazy flash games on Newgrounds, it was The Incredible Machine that let gamers discover the joy of physics sandbox chaos. Many hours of fun were had feeding tiny children to alligators and dropping huge piles of cats onto trampolines. The puzzles themselves were sublime, teaching foresight and out-of-the-box thinking in ways that were unheard of at the time. I'd go so far as to say that The Incredible Machine 3 is probably my top pick for best puzzle game of all time.

There have been clones and copycats over the years with varying levels of quality (Bad Rats, anyone?), but now you don't have to settle for imitations! This is the same game as it was 20 years ago, only with a new name and a fresh coat of HD paint it so greatly deserved. All the old machine parts are back, puzzle size and complexity is UNLIMITED, and Steam Workshop integration means that the world can see the puzzles you make (rather than just whatever friends or family you could trick into playing your custom puzzle). The music is almost as good as the old soundtracks, and just try not to shed a tear of nostalgia when you clear a puzzle and hear "whew!"

The interface still has some annoying kinks to work out, and some of the animal animations are atrociously ugly, but overall this is an amazing effort and deserves the time and attention of any puzzle gamers, especially those who enjoy programming-style games.

I'll tell you what, I'm really loving this fad of ridiculously old puzzle games being brought back by their original creators. So besides this, we now have Chip's Challenge back as Chuck's Challenge, DROD is still going strong, Shadowgate just got a modern remake... what's next? Boulder Dash? LaserTank? Dr. Brain? ...Oh my god, Dr. Brain. Somebody please bring Dr. Brain back. Get a kickstarter going or something. Now. I'm serious.

There was a time, I swear to you this is true, that "video games" were "core gamer" without knowing what that meant, intelligent, puzzling, and awesome. Games are still awesome. In fact they have gotten riduclous in their awesomeness. However, what I like isn't the same thing that I would let my child(ren) play. Thus far Contraption Maker is definitly part of that Venn Diagram. Overalapping old school "spiritual succussion", intelligent puzzle, fun animations, and some "core gamer" sensibilities.

Build the perfect rube goldberg. Free the mouse, Feed the dog. Just don't do it simply....use a laser, a floating ballon, some switches, maybe a pulley and a treadmill. Sound the least bit interesting? Then you know you're in the right place.

Do you remember those really entertaining contraption games when you were younger? This game tops them all. Contraption Maker is developed by the same people who were behind the legendary The Incredible Machine series, it brings back those awesome memories from over 15 years ago where you really had to test your imagination to accomplish the goals set out for you.

I'm really glad to see a successor to The Incredible Machine and that the team behind Contraption Maker are still capable of doing what they do best. With the addition of the Steam Workshop, Contraption Maker has tons of content available to provide several hours of game play and gives you an opportunity to test your creativity and share it with others.

When you pick up this game, you get an additional copy to do with as you please, I gave mine to my youngest brother as he used to play the original as much as I did. Buy the game and spread the word!

I'm not even past the tutorial levels yet but this game is amazeballs. For those who have played The Incredible Machine it will be a great nostalgia trip. However, I feel this is also one for those completely new to TIM-style games, young and old. Contraption Maker is the one game that will make you unleash your creative inner-child. It's highly enjoyable! If there was a star rating system I'd definitely give this a solid 5/5.

If you're at all a fan of Rube-Goldberg machines or the original Incredible Machines, this game is a no brainer purchase. If you're not, it's still a very solid puzzle game with tons of official content, community content, and just fun tools to play around with.

A fun game for any ages. Many of the older players may remember the past installments of the series and may think this one is just the same. It isn't, it includes more items and more options for every item. You can get hours of fun from this game. One or two items have been deleted like the lava lamp, which is a shame. However, that fact aside. There is lots of fun nto be had from this game and I would recommend it to anyone, as long as you have creativity.

I never had the chance to play The Incredible Machine when I was younger, but I always wanted to! It has met my expectations. I'm a little sad that this isn't more popular, so I bought a few copies for my younger friends. We really need to show the current generation what good games are like. Graphics don't last, and the good memories gained from special FX fade as technology improves. You will remember engaging gameplay though!

This one gave me a real nostalgia rush. I played the original "Incredible Machine" as a kid, and boy, this was 1992 ! This awesome remake has everything the original had and a lot more. No fuzz, just really good puzzles. Some unagitated humor. And as the best part: Steam Workshop Support for an unlimited fresh supply of puzzles (although the offical ones will steal you hours of your life). Lovin' it!

For anyone who loves to Tinker, Experiment, and Solve Puzzles Contraption Maker is the game for you.
The spiritual successor and true sequel to The Incredible Machine, Contraption Maker updates everything we loved about the older Mac OS and Windows 95 game.
