Software pick of the week: Machinarium for Windows 8 or Windows Phone 8
Machinarium is a wonderful and beautiful new game that is temporarily on sale for just $2.49 (normally $5) on Windows; it's $1.99 on Windows Phone. It's a puzzle/adventure game with lush graphics and neat sound effects, similar, atmospherically, to the game Limbo. "Players take on the role of a robot who has been exiled to the scrap heap. Players must use logic, collect important items, and solve environmental puzzles to get the robot back into the city of Machinarium so he can rescue his robot-girlfriend, save the head of the city, and defeat the bad guys from the Black Cap Brotherhood."
