The end result is a game that's both adorable and mysterious. The world invites exploration, and with no particular time limits or ways to get permanently stuck, that exploration is leisurely and calming. Unmechanical is cute, just challenging enough, and not too terribly long.
Unmechanical began life in 2011 as a student project in Sweden. According to the team, "Most work has been done on the students' free time, both during school and the following internships when the team was spread out across Europe." On its own, it's a fun and lovely project. As a first game from a new studio made of up new designers, it becomes an impressive project to boot.
Unmechanical is available today via Steam, GOG, and GamersGate.
