Machineers is a puzzle adventure with quirky robots and wonderful machines, where you learn to repair broken objects and machines by logically connecting gears and circuits. The outcome is getting the machines to work: The DJ machine plays a tune, the owl flaps its wings, the letters in a neon sign blink in unison. Solving mechanical puzzles trains your logic skills, until you can create your own inventions and earn yourself the title of “Machineer”.

If you win, how will you use the money?
If we win, we will use this money to translate the dialogues to a selection of Scandinavian languages (Swedish, Norwegian, Icelandic, Finnish) and port the first two episodes to PC, Mac and Linux, so we can make Machineers available to as many people as possible.
