"The buttons are big and responsive. The game requires both tap and long tap. Works really great with a touchscreen but may be slow on low-end devices."

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!

Build-Off #2: Sit, Stay, Good Boy!

<<CONTEST SUBMISSIONS ARE CLOSED>>


Did you miss the first Contraption Maker Build-Off? Have no fear, the second Build-Off is here! Work like a dog to make the coolest Tinker-centric contraption that you can. Check out the results of our last build off to get an idea of what to expect.

The winners of the contest will receive Steam games of their choice! The prize pool has increased since last time, with 1st place winning $100 worth of games!



Here are all of the nitty gritty details for the contest. PLEASE READ OVER THEM CAREFULLY. We will NOT accept submissions that don’t follow all the rules!

Contest Theme
To celebrate our latest update to the game, the theme of this contest is Tinker the Dog. Try to make the coolest contraption that you can involving Tinker. You can use any and as many parts as you want, but make the focus of the contraption be the dog.

How to Enter
  • At any time during the entry period, create a contraption and submit it to the Steam Workshop. Submit it as a contraption, not a puzzle.
  • In your contraption description, make a note that it is a submission for the CM Dog Build-Off

Rules
  • Entries for this contest must be created by you, and cannot be the work of someone else.
  • Do not submit something that was submitted to the Workshop before the contest date. Even if you were the creator, this is not allowed.
  • Entries must be submitted to the Steam Workshop as a Contraption, not as a puzzle.
  • We can disqualify someone at any time if they are found to be cheating.
  • One entry per user only. You can change your submission up until the completion date, but you cannot submit multiple entries.
Scoring
The 3 scoring categories are: technique, originality, and presentation.
  • Technique: How technically impressive is your contraption? How much does it make the judge say, “I can’t believe they actually pulled that off.”
  • Originality/Creativity: Are you using parts in a new and original way? Are you doing something nobody else has thought of?
  • Presentation: Don’t just submit your contraption on the default blue background. Add some pretty scenery, animate it, give a nice backstory to what’s happening in the contraption.

Contest Dates
October 8th, 2014 @ 10:00 AM PST to October 15th, 2014 @ 5:00 PM PST. Entries submitted before or after this time period will not be accepted.

Prizes
  • 1st Place: $100 worth of Steam Game(s)*
  • 2nd Place: $60 worth of Steam Game(s)*
  • 3rd Place: $30 worth of Steam Game(s)*

1st, 2nd, and 3rd place will all have their contraptions featured in the Editor’s Choice section of the Workshop as well.

*Games will be gifted to your Steam account. Winner may choose more than one game, but the total must be equal to or less than the given amount. Must have a Steam account to claim prize, no substitutes. Prize MUST be claimed by October 28th, 2014.

Process
  • The contest runs for one week. During this time, players can create, submit, and edit their entries.
  • Once the contest is over, the judges will take a few days to review and anonymously rate the submitted contraptions.
  • Contraptions will be judged in 3 categories with a score of 1-10 in each category. The contraption with the highest total score will be the winner.
  • There can be multiple winners at any prize level in the case of a tie.
  • This contest is NOT a random drawing. Submissions will be judged by us, the developers of Contraption Maker.
  • By entering this contest, you agree to let us use your Steam name and avatar when announcing winners or talking about the contest.
  • Previous Build-Off winners are still eligible to win.

Go get to building and "unleash" your creativity on the Workshop :-)

“Contraption Maker is from the makers of that genre-defining classic, and it's already a recognisable heir to the throne...It's already worth your time and money.”
PC Gamer

“This is a cool game that really tests your imagination.”
Yogscast Sjin

“It is a from-the-ground-up modernization, with enough familiar elements to instantly excite old fans of The Incredible Machine and enough modern touches to fuel the imaginations of gamers who have never touched the original.”

The puzzles seem a bit simple so far. As a player of the incredible machine, however, it's still well worth the full price of $15. BUY IT AND PLAY IT NOW!

Steam workshop support means that even after the game is complete/released, the community can continue to create puzzles.

I only hope they add some more parts for us. I don't usually say this, but even a series of cheap (read: $1) DLCs would be welcome here, with more parts and puzzles after the game is released. A limited number of parts means a limited amount of replayability.

I remember playing The Incredible Machines in my school days. I really enjoyed the game back then and I always wondered why there are no modern games like that. Well, now there is Contraption Maker. Only now it's my 6 years old son who has spent more than hundred hours playing it and will surely spend much more.

This game offers exactly what that old classic offered - you can solve pre-designed puzzles or create your own. Since this is not the finished product, there are not too many pre-desined puzzles, although more are being added as the time goes. The creation part however is already a lot of fun.

Conclusion: this game is well made and I trust it to become even better as development continues. My son loves it and I respect it for helping develop his creativity and problem-solving in a fun way.

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.
