Golden Cannon

The Golden Cannon behaves just like the normal cannon except that its aim can be changed while contraptions are running.

Tentative Contraption Maker Roadmap

This is a subject-to-change list of what is coming next to Contraption Maker.

Mid April
  • A new cannon part with different behavior from the current one.
  • 10 puzzles in "Kev's Puzzle Pack".
  • Various small GUI improvements.


Also Mid April
  • 20 total puzzles in Wonderstructs DLC.
  • 20 puzzles in Battling Cards DLC.


Mid May
  • Andrew and Zoe's Little Adventure mod game using the built in javascript.
  • 15 total puzzles in "Kev's Puzzle Pack"

This describes how to use JavaScript in Contraption Maker. The whole JavaScript stuff in Contraption Maker is on my to-do list to improve, expand, and use more.

Getting Started with JavaScript Modding in Contraption Maker


1st Half of June
  • Mighty Knights DLC - Puzzles, Parts, and Minecraft like terrain system. Will be posting development updates here about this big addition to Contraption Maker.
  • A few more puzzles in "Kev's Puzzle Pack" (time permitting).

It'd be very helpful if you follow and wishlist it. I'll be posting updates with behind the scene videos as dev goes along.

Reviews

“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

About This Game

** Contraption Maker is a 2-pack. Buy it and get a copy for a friend to build together! **

The team that created the original Incredible Machine® is bringing all of the Rube Goldberg craziness to the modern age.

Solve puzzles involving ridiculous chain reactions full of hamster motors, trampolines, alligators, cats, and so much more. Everything you loved about the original game is back and improved with a new physics engine, high definition art, new parts, and even online multiplayer. Over 200 official puzzles, and a whole bunch of community creations.

Steam Workshop integration allows you to share your creations with the world.



Enjoy hours of puzzle solving with over 200 official puzzles and countless community submissions. Fix broken contraptions with specific parts you are given to accomplish goals like turning on lights, opening fireworks factories, and throwing birthday parties for crocodiles.



Enter the easy to use Maker Lab to make your own puzzles or random contraptions. More than 100 parts ranging from gears and dynamite to bears and cats are at your disposal. Use the layered background tool to create settings for your contraptions to exist in, and then animate them to add some life. There's no part or size limitation to what you want to make. Build as much as you can to bring your computer to its knees.



Javascript modding is built directly into the game. Create custom game types using all of the the Contraption Maker parts and physics as a base. Or start with a published mod and use the Maker Lab to make a new level. Easily share and play other mods in the Steam Workshop.



Play online with friends to build contraptions together in the Maker Lab. Up to 8 players can build together in real time. Currently multiplayer is only in the Maker Lab, there is no cooperative puzzle solving yet.



Share your puzzles and creations with the world through the Steam Workshop. Thousands of Workshop submissions are already waiting to be played.
