Looks beautiful. Lacks a bit of humour though, is there no speech in the game?

I get the feeling that although its art is gorgeous, it might get repititive over the long haul. I need some quips and humour.

And a central hub to send letters and furniture.

I knew your soul was cold and empty.

If the puzzles are handled right, it cannot possibly get repetitive. You suck. Nyaa

i must have played a previous web game by these guys the name of which escapes me.  the art direction was identical (ie it looked like an eastern european 70ies cartoon, complete with human noises as sound effects) and the gameplay revolved around causality puzzles which you solved using just the mouse.  it also had a lot of weird worms and insects etc.  loved the look of that game and i love this one too.  thanks for the heads up steel

They could at least do some robot jokes to do with oiling up and crank shafts, no? Nyaa

Seriously is there no speech whatsover? The video was just one screen to the next. Reminds me a little of the anime Metropolis for some reason.

Umm, GG, what's not humorous about a robot in a wheel chair?!

    Children, our lives have been gongs striking; clamour and boasting; cries of despair; blows on the nape of the neck in gardens.

If he had a cane, kept leaking oil and berated everyone constantly, that would be the game right there.

Today I went to my scrapyard and took out an iron gate from the early 20th century and restored it.  No one's making a game about me though are they?
