This looks quite interesting. Anyone tried it?

Edit: There are a bunch of very interesting videos about this "game" that can be found on YouTube by searching for Machineers. Apparently, this is developed to teach 10 to 14 year old programming concepts, but in a really fun way. The developers emphasize that is is not edutainment. Really pretty neat! I will have to try this when I finish some of the games I am currently playing.

Tried it for about 20 minutes, and really diggin it so far. As mentioned in the previous post, the game teaches simple programming/mechanical logic, and plays very similarily to the Professor Layton games - i.e. a mixture of exploring and solving puzzles. Two thumbs up!

Yep, this looks fantastic. I always like games that are smart and taxing without going too far into the edutainment genre. Looks like another post-Wednesday purchase for me

Pretty good game so far. I played through 6 puzzles & enjoyed them. The look reminds me of Machinarium which I loved. Thankfully so far it's not as hard as that game. I'm sure it'll get harder as I move along. Story line is good & very easy to follow. Controls are spot on. Wish there were more than 12 puzzles in the first episode as January for episode 2 seems far away.
