Description


King Machine is a game about building machines.

Explore an abandoned factory, finding useful machinery and gradually building the tools and structures you need to restore the factory to operation. What was the original purpose of the factory and why was it shut down? To achieve complete control you will eventually need to confront and overcome the powerful machines protecting the factory's most critical resources.



Gameplay in King Machine is third person, controlled by mouse and keyboard.

True Design Freedom - No Puzzles
In King Machine you can construct whatever structures and machines you choose to reach your goals. The zones of the factory are not puzzles and you won't find yourself stuck because you can't think of some specific trick the game insists you use. There are plenty of hard challenges, but whether you get through with half a dozen hilariously shoddy machines, a single beautiful masterpiece or a sneaky trick it's all fair play.



No Separate Machine Building
Everything you make is put together during play. There is no separate design or production phase. Similarly, there is no menu of parts - everything you make is constructed from things you find lying around the factory and repurpose!



King Machine has been in development for over five years! The time wasn't spent on ceaseless coding and artwork. The game has been through numerous prototypes and earlier versions, trying to find exactly the right kind of gameplay to make machines really matter.

With the exception of Ed Fry's brilliantly atmospheric music and Emma Newman's outstanding voice acting the game is entirely the work of designer Dom Camus. You can follow @fastramdesign on Twitter for news of development and Greenlight progress.



Currently King Machine is in beta testing, but should be ready to launch soon... once it's Greenlit! If you like the look of the game, please do spread the word.

Once the Windows version is released, MacOS and Linux versions will follow shortly afterwards.
