Just finished Machinarium. It is an extremely charming game. Loved it.

I have some story related questions:

In the foyer of the king/mayor/president, whatever he is, there is this sitting robot who tells his story of being found by the soldiers on some kind of alien planet (Machinarium moon?). I wonder what's this robot's significance. I know you don't need him to finish the game, but I wanted to understand. I thought at first that he is an alien robot from that moon, and that we should bring him back home. But you can't, so... Anyone has any ideas?

And regarding the villains in the game: what were they trying to do exactly? They put viruses on the Mayor's program, sent one of his servants to the scrapyard, took the other one to work in the kitchen, and then planted a bomb on the dome. Were they trying to ruin the city? overthrow the mayor? or were they just plain evil as villains are..  Grin.

Yes. I know it's just a "cute" game, and most people don't give these details a second thought. But I guess that to me it just doesn't feel complete without this closure...

That robot's a tie-in/reference to Samorost2, which is another game by Amanita Design.
(Play the game and you'll understand. =o)

As for the villains, I'm pretty sure that their goal was to destroy the city. And also yes, they're just plain evil. ;o)

oh, a reference to another game - that perfectly makes sense...

Thanks.  Smiley
