The Incredible Machine Series Bought, Reissued

PushButton Labs announces they have acquired The Incredible Machine; both the series of puzzle games, as well as the intellectual property itself. PushButton Labs was co-founded by Jeff Tunnell and Rick Overman, veterans of Dynamix and GarageGames, and this acquisition of The Incredible Machine represents a bit of a homecoming for the series, as Jeff Tunnell was a co-designer on the original game (Wikipedia lists him as its producer). With the IP in hand, it seems likely new games in the series will be forthcoming, but in the meantime, they have bundled up almost every game in the series for release on GOG.com in a DRM-free bundle called The Incredible Machine Mega Pack for $9.99. Here's an outline of the contents of the compilation: "Pack includes almost every game from series: The Even More Incredible Machine (includes The Incredible Machine with new puzzles), The Incredible Machine 3 (Windows compatibly The Incredible Machine 2 with new interface and enhanced graphics), Return of the Incredible Machine Contraptions and The Incredible Machine - Even More Contraptions."

For one thing, when a game gets pulled off GOG.com, it vanishes from your account.

But it doesn't vanish from your computer.

I certainly wouldn't call a traditional publisher unreliable for not replacing discs that I lost.
