Looks really interesting, though I was unsure of how the actual gameplay really works, even after watching the video. It jus showed the bugs running away constantly from a big spider/fly thing.

Gameplay is similar to Machinarium and their other adventure games; if you haven't played them, I strongly recommend that you do, especially Machinarium.

This game looks unique in that you have five characters to utilize in order to solve puzzles, each with specific roles. There's a good preview of it here.


It's available at gog.com for preorder, but strangely it doesn't include the Mac version...hope it appears on Steam soon.

Yeah, the video doesn't give the impression of "point-and-click" at all - in fact the video makes it look rather "platform-ey" to me.  I'm interested either way.  Machinarium was so good I couldn't possibly ignore what's next.

4/5. I enjoyed this one as much as Machinarium, and actually think the setting was a bit better.

Recommended!

Setting and artistic view is awesome, and several of the puzzles are quite nice. It is merely a matter of click everything, remember what to do, and enjoy the ride. Quite a few occasition where I was at a loss of what to do, but it didn't ruin the overall experience.

And now, time for some Legend of Zelda.
