    I've just found out about this new thing called Contraption Maker:


    Sweet Jesus with chocolate filling, I still remember playing a lot of TIM and TIM2 almost... 20 years ago. I really hope the new game is as good as the old ones.

    EDIT: Oh, yeah... link: http://contraptionmaker.com/

    They're STILL churning out TIM-clones after 20 years?

    The Incredible Machine in '92, the expansion pack the year after, Sid & Al's Incredible Toons (my favourite) in 1993, the Windows version of that in 1994, TIM2 in 1994 and TIM3 in 1995. A spinoff/sequel in 2000 called Contraptions and a sequel to that in 2001, with finally the original being re-released on the iPad in 2011.

    If they've stopped recycling old material and are actually going to add new content for once, this might be good.

    I remember playing first machines as a kid. That game teached you so many things without being boring. Just tinkering with possible equipement and finding the proper use of them. That's what I call edutainment.
