Machinarium

Machinarium is a full scale point and click adventure game by Amanita Design. The game is about a strange rusty, metallic place populated only by robots. The story is about a little robot who has been unjustly thrown out to the scrap yard behind the city. In the game, firstly he must be reassmebled after finding various hidden body parts and only then he returns to the town where he meets the bad guys from The Black Cap Brotherhood – they are just preparing a bomb attack on the central tower where the town ruler has his residence. Of course our hero must stop them and also rescue his robot-girlfriend.

The Amanita team received the Aesthetics Award at IndieCade 2008 and Excellence in Visual Art Award at the Independent Games Festival 2009 for Machinarium. The specific visual art design of this game is built on a traditional pencil drawing subsequently modified on the computer and what is the imporatant as well are the characters and objects animation in the game that is built on the traditional Czech cutout animation. This technique gives the game a unique artistic character.

    Absolutely wonderful game. I didn’t want it to end. The mix of steampunk and avant-garde style artwork give it such a great atmosphere! The music, puzzles, feel, heck everything about it, is special. I wish I had full size posters of the art. Bravo!

    Lovely game with an unequaled graphic style. The beautiful drawings and funny, quirky animations give the game a unique feel with a lot of heart.

    In my opinion, the graphical style shares some resemblance with the drawings and style of Don Lawrence and H.R. Giger, but comparing this piece of art with the works of either of those great artists would be an insult to Adolf Lachman’s effort, which is stunningly original in it’s own right.

    Highly recommended!

    Absolutely amazing style! I’m a perfectionist and love clean sharp images. But is something else entirely. Every image you’ve created is worthy of hanging on a wall. I never imagined this style of work could be so beautiful. Great Job!!!
