By Marty Mulrooney

If you still haven’t played last year’s surprise indie point ‘n’ click success Machinarium, shame on you! As detailed in my review, it is a wonderful little game that deserves to reach as wide an audience as possible. Furthermore, there is now absolutely no excuse for not adding this adventure to your collection: for those of you still adverse to digital downloads, Amanita Design have teamed up with Mamba Lace Global to offer a retail version of the game. Not only that, but it comes bundled with an impressive collection of additional goodies making it seriously good value for money!
