Plenty of game, here, for 99 cents.

The screenshots might lead you to think it's a Machinarium-type point-and-click adventure, and while there *is* a strong Amanita Design influence in the visuals, sound, atmosphere and pacing, the game itself is really more like one of those "hidden object" things that some people seem to love, sprinkled with a handful of the kind of puzzles you'd find in a Prof. Layton title.

So if you know someone who'd go nuts for that, let them know about the sale.

And even if a hidden object game isn't something you'd usually consider buying, I think I can recommend this one. Personally, once I'd got past my disappointment that it wasn't the kind of game I thought it was, I found myself quite enjoying The Tiny Bang Story. It's relaxing to play, and the surreal, lushly detailed world was fun to spend time in

For what it's worth, I really hate this games where you have a lit of objects to find in a cluttered picture. This is nothing like those. There is some hidden object finding to be done, but it's done way better than in those games - and there are some nifty puzzles as well.

Yup. I should say, too, that you aren't searching for objects within unmoving images; you're presented with animated, interactive "rooms" that are more like the scenes of a point-and-click adventure. But rather than the traditional puzzles of a point-and-click, you're mostly looking for jigsaw pieces, mechanical parts, etc., which are hidden in the environment. Finding all of a particular set then usually allows you to unlock a Prof. Layton style puzzle.

I got this game when it was free as well, and I finished the game. It is part Machinarium, part hidden object game. I prefer Machinarium by a long ways, but it was interesting nonetheless. It held my interest until I finished it. There were some frustrating moments, but overall it was good. I do love the style of artwork that is in the game.

I'm starting to think that you and me enjoy nearly every game genre.
