With that in mind, here are all the best games hitting the Microsoft Store next week, between April 13 and 17.

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.
