Opus Magnum is the new game from the creator of SpaceChem


Right in that same wheelhouse

Zachtronics makes a certain type of puzzle game for a certain type of player to experiment with, learn, and strive to eventually master. The developer's new title, Opus Magnum, certainly follows in the footsteps of SpaceChem and Infinifactory in that regard. It's out today on Steam Early Access.

As a talented alchemist, you'll piece together the "transmutation engine— the alchemical engineer's most advanced tool— and use it to create vital remedies, precious gemstones, deadly weapons, and more." So, it's another game of automation and efficiency, one in which "dark plots swirl around the city's ancient Houses." There's also an alchemy-based solitaire mini-game included!

How far along is development? "I was actually tempted to skip Early Access for Opus Magnum, as this is by far the most polished game we've ever released as an Early Access title," says Zachtronics. "The game features a fully realized story-driven campaign, and includes a puzzle editor, Steam Workshop integration, and localization into six languages from day one of Early Access."

If you'd still rather wait for the final version, though, know that the price won't go up post-Early Access.
