Machinarium - Lukas
We are excited to announce that the "definitive" update of the award winning adventure game Machinarium is rolling out on Steam right now! It's a free update and a replacement of the original Flash version.



So what exactly is new?

We’ve reprogrammed Machinarium from the scratch. The game is now using a custom made DirectX engine instead of Flash which has become quite old-fashioned in recent years. Therefore you can finally enjoy Machinarium even on modern high resolution screens. And thanks to added gamepad support, the game works perfectly in Steam Big Picture.

With new engine, new achievements, new languages and a new way to play, now is the best time for both fans and newcomers to accompany Josef the Robot on his little big adventure to save his girlfriend Berta. Please see the full changelog below.

The definitive version of Machinarium for Windows PC is rolling out on Steam now.
Mac version will be available soon.

Thank you for the patience and the overwhelming support!

Changelog:
  • Completely new custom engine
  • Improved full screen support. The game now uses all of your screen even on high resolution displays
  • 12 new achievements
  • Support for Xbox 360 and Xbox One gamepads (other controllers with experimental support)
  • Steam Cloud saves
  • Localization to 14 languages including Chinese, Japanese, Korean and Russian
  • New Steam leaderboards: "Quickest Win" and "Explorer" (based on distance travelled)
Gemini Rue - Wadjet Eye Games
Hello all! You might have noticed that your Gemini Rue game has been updated. We have re-compiled the entire game in the new version of the Adventure Game Studio engine. This means that the game NOW WORKS ON ALL YOUR FANCY NEW MODERN MONITORS. As the game got older, many glitches started appearing. Those should - theoretically - be gone now. We know this update was a long time in coming. Thank you for your patience.

This does have the negative effect of breaking all your original save files. If you would like to revert back to the original version of Gemini Rue, you need to to the following:

1- Right-click on the game in your Steam library
2- Select "Properties" and go to the "Beta" tab
3- Enter the password "geminirueold"
4- select the beta version "original" from the drop down list.

The game should revert itself back to the old version. If it doesn't, uninstall and reinstall.

Thank you all, and enjoy the game!

The makers of Samorost, Botanicula and Machinarium have announced a new game. It s called Chuchel [official site] and judging by these two teasers it looks in keeping with the studio’s tradition of odd games with even odder names. We don t have much else to go on yet, however, just a couple of short trailers showing off what I m guessing is the grumpy protagonist. Come and enjoy his garbled ranting. … [visit site to read more]

It’s rather lovely when you learn of a tiny company consistently making splendid games is succeeding, rather than struggling to stay alive. Amanita Design, who RPS have championed for their witty, beautiful and smart adventure games since we launched, sent us some very interesting sales information about their robotic point-and-clicker, Machinarium [official site], after its four millionth sale.

We are receiving email from players about old version support and about troubles to run game on old hardware. Few words - You still can play it! Let me explain some moments.

Steam have 3 versions of the game (you can switch it in the game preferences):
- Default - Modern stable version for everyone.
- Legacy - The old original game released in 2011. Use it on old hardware.
- Beta - New version of release candidate.

Few words about plans:
- We plan to add better support for fullscreen mode.
- We'll add image smooth algorithm for big screens.
- We'll add achievements and cards.

Suggestions!?

Best,
Colibris.

Linux beta version is available. It's first public linux version. Some minor bugs can be expected. You need last version of Steam client to run the game on linux. You can update Steam client manually from menu.

Try the game and leave your comments here about your experience with linux version.

Cheers,
Colibris.
