At least in this household, The Incredible Machine was a PC gaming mainstay. Even to this day, the Rube Goldberg puzzles immediately evoke a warm sense of nostalgia. Something tells me I'm far from alone in that regard, which is why we should all be happy to hear that a spiritual successor called Contraption Maker is in the works for Windows and Mac.

Better yet, Jeff Tunnell, Kevin Ryan, and Brian Hahn of the aforementioned series are on board with Spotkin for this project. Later this summer, there will be an early access program for those eager to get in early.

"Working on Contraption Maker with modern processors and GPU’s, huge memory, connectivity, and high definition monitors is like being in a dream world. We can’t wait to show you all of the ideas we have for this product," wrote Tunnell. "Even though we have all worked on hundreds of different games, we all agree that The Incredible Machine was our favorite."
