In a dark, dystopian future, a robot finds itself in a world plagued with a disease called “Phlegm” (Ew). In Mechanism, take control of this plucky little robot and try to figure out the mystery of this terrible future. From dodging the disease of Phlegm to solving riddles, this robot will have to do some quick processing Take care to observe the world around you as it may change with your choices…
Inspired by Dark Souls‘ exploration, Mechanism urges players to dig into each area of the game to uncover the secrets contained in its goopy, mechanical lands. Players that are a bit more curious may find a deeper meaning to this nuts-and-bolts story. It won’t be a walk in the park, as Phlegm takes its toll on the lonely robot, and the game will respond by changing its mechanics based on how infected the little machine is. Gross.
Mechanism wants players to think – and not just with its puzzles and easter egg hunting. With a meta-narrative, a non-linear world, and morphing mechanics based on contamination, players will be challenged to find the true meaning behind the game as they solve its puzzles and explore its dying worlds.
