New Rope Type Parts (Build 1.3.6.16)

This free update has a few new rope type parts.

Rope Hook Bar



This has many loops that ropes can be attached to.


Wire



The wire is just like the rope except it can not be cut by the scissors.


Rope Ring



You can attach up to eight ropes to the Rope Ring.


Silver Lift Balloon



The Silver Lift Balloon has more lift power than a normal balloon, but not as much as the Golf Lift Balloon.


Next planned update is November 5th

Bonus New Part For Contraption Maker (build 1.3.6.13)

So I've been working on our new game Puzzle Poker the last few days. And it occurred to me that I could make a ball type part from the poker chips. Nothing super fancy, but the smaller size can be useful in building contraptions.

So.... see below about the new Poker Chip part...

Oh, yeah, also added the rotate gizmo to the Gold Lift Balloon.


Puzzle Poker

Puzzle Poker is a fairly casual game that is very close to being done. I've been doing work on it between working on updates to Contraption Maker. Polishing stuff and tweaking game-play.

Planning to get it out the door the first half of November. It'd help if you'd follow it just to check it out when it ships. Different type of game than Contraption Maker, working hard to make it fun.

Poker Chip Part



I made the poker chip small enough to fit through the small pipe. Acts pretty much like a very small ball which is fairly slick and bounces pretty good.


October 15th Update
New Rope type parts are on schedule to be released in an update on October 15th.

“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

“It's an amazing game and I love it to pieces”
Markiplier

“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.”
