Is there any way to migrate my settings? Why doesn't the game migrate just like regular windows/phone apps?

I love this game but I don't want to start from scratch, please help. I still have my old phone...

Sorry, but...

According to this tutorial about how to Migrate Data from an Old Windows Phone to a New Windows Phone: "Keep in mind that this process migrates your accounts, your Windows Phone settings, messages, apps and games. It doesn't migrate the settings of your apps or your saved games. Those are lost and you need to manually configure each app and game on your new Windows Phone."

Also note that nowhere here (on the WP Machinarium game download page) is saved game state migration mentioned.

Maybe you could try this WP app called "Transfer my Data"?  Hopefully that will serve your current need.

Good luck!

since your game works on windows phone *and* windows, why not roam the save games via the Microsoft roaming mechanism? it's really easy

Machinarium is not my game.  I am a fan and a friend of Amanita Design who also helps to maintain this forum.  You are welcome to talk to the developers directly and tell them about your "roaming" idea by using the form you'll find in the About tab up top.
