About This Game


Kelvin and the Infamous Machine is a hilarious point-and-click adventure in which you stumble irresponsibly through history to help legendary geniuses complete their masterworks!

Kelvin is the well-meaning research assistant of Dr. Edwin Lupin, an outstanding but tacky physicist who goes completely nuts when his life’s work, a shower-shaped time machine, is ridiculed by the scientific community. Bent on leaving his mark, Lupin launches himself into the past to prevent history’s greatest geniuses from completing their defining works, so HE can complete them instead.

Now the very fabric of time is beginning to unravel, and it’s up to Kelvin and his fellow research assistant Lise to repair it. Point and click your way through three wacky, gorgeously drawn chapters to help Ludwig van Beethoven, Isaac Newton, and Leonardo da Vinci achieve their destined greatness!



  • Classic point-and-click gameplay, featuring both pointing and clicking.
  • Beautiful hand-drawn 2D environments.
  • A huge variety of wacky puzzles that increase in difficulty as you go.
  • 56 quirky, fully animated characters
  • Over 2000 lines of written dialog.
  • Original soundtrack with 12 unique tracks.
  • And of course, the unique opportunity to annoy three of the greatest minds in history and save the universe!

Best part: No long boring dialogs.

Great funny cartoon-style adventure game. It's quite easy and not very long. Completed it in a little over 4 hours.

Would love to see more adventure games like this. Would buy a sequel without hesitating.

A wonderful point and click adventure with a fun script. Beautifully drawn and animated throughout, including lots of animations for the one-time activities. I play games occassionally but not regularly, with that in mind I found the puzzles to be perfectly pitched, obviously your mileage may vary. Think it took me about 5 (very enjoyable) hours to complete split over several sessions. The voice acting is good too.

this is a genuinely funny, often hilarious traditional 2D point-and-click adventure game that looks and sounds great. If you’re a fan of the genre, this is the perfect game to play through in an evening and it’s pretty family friendly too.

A lot like the classic Day of the Tentacle series by LucasArts, but the shorter indie version. Well worth playing, and the voice acting is top notch.

kelvin and the infamous machine is a good point and click game so far
however I had some trouble running the game via steam. the dev's helped me trouble shoot the problem and recommend I launch the game via the .exe located in the game directory which worked. ill update this review when I have played the game a little more. oh and one more thing
if you own windows 7 and it doesnt work let the developer know about this and maybe find a way
to fix this game it is a good game once it works.

Mπορεί να είναι η πρώτη απόπειρα της Blyts στα adventure games, μπορεί να είχε περιορισμένο budget στη διάθεσή του, παρ’ όλα αυτά το “Kelvin and the Infamous Machine” μου χάρισε περί τις 4.5 ώρες διασκέδασης που ευχαρίστως θα επαναλάμβανα, κάνοντάς με να περιμένω μ’ ενδιαφέρον να δω τι έχει να μας δώσει η Αργεντίνικη εταιρεία στο μέλλον.

Even though it’s the first attempt of Blyts in adventure games, with limited budget available, this game gave me around 4.5 hours of fun that I would gladly repeat. At the same time it makes me wonder what else this indie Argentinian company can offer us in the future.

A short, but sweet adventure with a lot of heart. The writing breaks the fourth wall often, which has become something of a point-and-click trope, but for some reason, Kelvin does it well. This is definitely a love letter to Day of the Tentacle, but does it well and holds up excellently in its own right.

Disclaimer: I'm one of the voice actors. Oh, yeah, the voice acting is great.

The game is very funny, the puzzles are interesting and the voices make this game even better. I've been playing since the beta version. The finished game is really polished. I'm really glad that linux was supported since the beginning.

A different game for sure, engaging and very well done. The voice acting is GREAT and the dialogue is even better. Everything this game does just brings it together.

This review may be influenced by the fact that the trailer looks SO good and so fun. I finished this game in a couple of hours. The game was funny, the art was wonderful, but there were no voices, super easy puzzles, and the worlds were very small. I was expecting more. I still liked it, but I do not think it is worth the price. It could be something great if they continue to work on it though.

A very fun point & click adventure game. The game takes neither itself nor the historical events it references terribly seriously, leading to a fun style and sense of humor reminiscent of some of the old classics.

The soundtrack is solid, and pairs well what's going on.

It's also surprisingly challenging, though I wouldn't call any of the puzzles unfair. If you avoid walkthrough use, the back-and-forthing required to get past some of the puzzles will add up to a particularly long game. But even if you peek a few times, the game is still quite substantial.

All in all, a solidly fun time! My only real complaint would be that the lack of a hotspot finder doesn't do the game any favors, especially since a handful of the important hotspots hide in darkened corners.

Go for it!

This game contains a unique artstyle mixed with 4th wall breaking and hilarious jokes. It has a lot of mind boggling puzzles that require you to think outside the box. I played this game with a friend and we solved the puzzles together. We beat the game in 5 hours and for what we got out of it I think it is fairly priced. Laughs from begining to finish and I can't wait until these guys finish the game. I absolutely love this game and would replay it again.

Kelvin needs to save history as we know it. Notice I say "we" because Kelvin really doesn't have a clue but he isn't letting that get in the way! Kelvin's boss has gone around the bend and is changing history; Kelvin's job is to set things right again. With his trusty shower stall time machine, Kelvin sets off to set things aright.

My usual disclaimer here: I backed the game on Kickstarter so if that is too biased for you, I suggest you find another review or go visit your local public library.

The artwork in the game is bright clean and fun. The same can be said for the score. The tone is very lighthearted and g rated; this is a game for everyone to enjoy. If you are looking for historical accuracy, you won't find it here beyond the general events Kelvin is trying to save. The maps are not huge but there is enough ground to walk around and things to see to keep you interested. The game works with only the left mouse button so the interface is simple (there is a magnifying glass in your backpack (inventory) that allows you to examine items in detail). Most of the puzzles are surprisingly challenging given the lighthearted tone of the game. I admit to having had to fall back on the old adventure standard of "click everything in your inventory on evertyhing and everyone" a few times to progress! That said, there are clues given throughout the game and the puzzles are not unfair; just challenging.

The game is still in early release (version 0.8) so there are gaps. The voice work isn't in yet. However, if the voice work is on par with the artwork and the music it will be a huge plus for the game. The dialogue is in so the game is quite playable and there is the music to enjoy. It appears that several puzzles are still in development so the final game might be longer to play. This version took an evening for each of the three chapters.

If you like adventures with just a bit of challenge, you will enjoy this game immensly. This is Blyt's first effort, let us hope there are more like this game in the future!
