Machinarium is the award-winning independent adventure game developed by the makers of Samorost and Botanicula. Help Josef the robot to save his girlfriend Berta kidnapped by the Black Cap Brotherhood gang. The title won a ton of awards when it launched a decade ago.

Machinarium world is populated only by robots of various forms and functions. One of the most interesting places in this world is old, rusty and legendary city of Machinarium where the game takes place. You will have to get rid of wicked robots from the Black Cap Brotherhood and save the head of the city and also your robot-girlfriend.

According to the listing, the game is coming to the console on April 16. The download should be quite small, too. However, this may be a placeholder so it may not launch then. However, we do know that it's coming!

  • For some reason I thought I had played this on Xbox, but I was clearly wrong.
  • 💯 Loved playing this when MS started their store for apps and games...
  • Have had this in my PlayStation library for years but never actually got around to playing it. Happy if it does finally come to Xbox as it was well received indie game all those years ago.
