Longplay: The Incredible Machine (1993) [MS-DOS]



Complete walkthrough!

The Incredible Machine (aka TIM) is a series of computer games that were originally designed and coded by Kevin Ryan and produced by Jeff Tunnell, the now-defunct Jeff Tunnell Productions, and published by Dynamix; the 1993 through 1995 versions had the same development team, but the later 2000–2001 titles had different designers. All versions were published by Sierra Entertainment.

The general goal of the games is to create a series of Rube Goldberg devices: arrange a given collection of objects in a needlessly complex fashion so as to perform some simple task (e.g., “put the ball into a box” or “start a mixer & turn on a fan”). Available objects ranged from simple ropes and pulleys to electrical generators, bowling balls, and even cats and mice to humans, most of which had specific interactions with or reactions to other objects (for example, mice will run towards nearby cheese). The levels usually have some fixed objects that cannot be moved by the player, and so the only way to solve the puzzle is carefully arrange the given objects around the fixed items. There is also a “freeform” option that allows the user to “play” with all the objects with no set goal or to also build their own puzzles with goals for other players to attempt to solve.

The Incredible Machine, the first game in the series, was originally going to be developed by Electronic Arts for the Commodore 64 in 1984, but Dynamix worked on Arcticfox for the Amiga instead and work did not start on The Incredible Machine until the spring of 1993. Kevin Ryan programmed The Incredible Machine in nine months, on a $36,000 budget.

  • I watched these videos when I was little. I had never read the title, only seeing the thumbnail. I forgot about it for a while, then it came back to me 3 years later. I got anxious and tried to remember what it was called. I found it.

  • Believe it or not, but Capcom also made its own version of this game for the Sony PlayStation 1 called アーサーとアスタロスノ ナゾマカイムラ(謎 魔界 村) (Arthur and Astaroth in the Mysterious Makai Village: Incredible Toons), and, as you can guess, it is a part of the Ghosts 'N' Goblins franchise, Dosgamert.
