Puzzle Poker
Other news: Puzzle Poker is launching this morning. A warning, it is a pretty casual game, different from Contraption Maker.

Thanks!
Finally, I know a few folks were going to buy Puzzle Poker as a show of support and I appreciate it. So as thanks I spent some time and added some silly bonus parts (and a few puzzles) to Contraption Maker that will show up if you own both games. Yes they are silly, but I think I can make some neat puzzles with them.

“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.”
Gaming Trend
