Danish developer Lohika makes their debut on Steam with the studio’s episodic puzzle adventure series Machineers – a game that aims to make the concept of programming accessible to and entertaining for young people.
Everything in Machineers is constructed and powered by gears, belts and electricity. As the robot girl “Zola”, who dreams of becoming a legendary “Machineer”, a specialist entrusted to fix machines in the game’s steampunk world of “Tivoli Town”, the player enters a world of weird robots and machines.
“Programming is a complex language that can be scary,” says Lohika CEO Henrike Lode. “With Machineers, we are making it more accessible by translating complex code into an easy-to-understand language of physical objects.”
The first two of five planned Machineers episodes, the first of which was released for iOS last year, are now available on Steam. The development team is hard at work finishing the game’s last three episodes.
