I <3 Geeks!: A Rube Goldberg puzzle game for the Nintendo DS

CDV have partnered up with Marc Ecko Enterprises to bring out I <3 Geeks, a Rube Goldberg style puzzle game for the Nintendo DS where you use every day objects and the laws of physics to complete puzzles. You’ll be given a set of objects such as candles, conveyor belts, wood and more to place on the touch screen to complete a Rube Goldberg style puzzle. There will be over 100 puzzles with most puzzles having multiple ways of getting solved.

In the story mode, you’ll help the geeks and use their smarts to get back at the bullying jocks to win the heart of the Cheerleaders. Totally sounds like an episode of Saved by the Bell to me. Anyway, the game will have two-player support and should be out later this year. Check out some of the screens below and the fact sheet after the jump.

Just like all the other DS games by CDV, expect I <3 Geeks! to drop later this year. I don’t know about you, but every time I watch/play anything Rube Goldberg style, I think of the music from this episode of Family Guy, which you can check out above.

I YGeeks! is the ultimate puzzle experience,  challenging players to create sophisticated and humorous contraptions using dozens of objects and the laws of real-world physics  to solve over 100 brain teasers.
Produced in cooperation with Marc Ecko Enterprises, the game features a tongue-in-cheek story and hip art style where the brainy Geek overcomes the brawny (and bullying) Jocks, winning the heart of the beautiful Cheerleader.
 A friendly interface and helpful tutorial make it easy for players to jump right in. Cheerful animated characters introduce new mechanisms and laws of physics in puzzles of increasing complexity, many that can be solved multiple ways. Wireless support allows up to two players to face off against one another in timed puzzle-solving races.
Key Features include:

·    Stylus-driven gameplay allows players to easily move components, test out possible solutions, and fire up their crazy machines to see the results.
·    Over 100 puzzles of varying difficulty gradually increase the challenge, ensuring appeal to a wide range of abilities, even those with limited knowledge of physics.
·    Multiple ways to solve most puzzles means that there is no single correct answer.
·    Compete head-to-head against friends and family in multiplayer timed skill tests.Hip artwork and backstory developed by urban icon Marc Ecko and his team; challenging game mechanics based on a cooperative design by German television giant SAT1/Pro Sieben.
