Kelvin and the Infamous Machine is a hilarious point-and-click adventure in which you stumble irresponsibly through history to help legendary geniuses complete their masterworks!

Kelvin is the well-meaning research assistant of Dr. Edwin Lupin, an outstanding but tacky physicist who goes completely nuts when his life’s work, a shower-shaped time machine, is ridiculed by the scientific community. Bent on leaving his mark, Lupin launches himself into the past to prevent history’s greatest geniuses from completing their defining works, so HE can complete them instead.

Now the very fabric of time is beginning to unravel, and it’s up to Kelvin and his fellow research assistant Lise to repair it. Point and click your way through three wacky, gorgeously drawn chapters to help Ludwig van Beethoven, Isaac Newton, and Leonardo da Vinci achieve their destined greatness!

  • Classic point-and-click gameplay, featuring both pointing and clicking.
  • Beautiful hand-drawn 2D environments.
  • A huge variety of wacky puzzles that increase in difficulty as you go.
  • 56 quirky, fully animated characters
  • Over 2000 lines of written dialog.
  • Original soundtrack with 12 unique tracks.
  • And of course, the unique opportunity to annoy three of the greatest minds in history and save the universe!

Kelvin and the Infamous Machine reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Deutsch
The Game is still good. It is a solid Point & Click of a small Argentine Studio with a Presentation in which, if it were a Film, it could also be shown on the KIKA television station, because it ultimately tells of three historically significant Personalities (Ludwig van Beethoven, Isaac Newton And Leonardo da Vinci) and her most famous Works in three different Eras. https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1555834025 This results in a strange Mixture of epoch-appropriate Elements and those from the Point & Click asservatory chamber (E.g. the carnivorous Plant). The Mixture is then seasoned With only sometimes funny Dialogues. The Time Machine with which our Hero, Kelvin, Travels around and resembles a Shower Stall is actually incidental, although it provides the Reason to persuade the historical Persons to carry On. But I found the Overall Story irrelevant. The Gameplay consists almost exclusively of Finding, Combining and Inserting Objects. Everything else is only hinted at (for example, the Stone-paper scissor game Or the Magic Tranking preparation). https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1555836837 Predominantly and especially initially it's quite easy, so I was back to thinking it was a Breeze. Later, solutions creep in here and there that are hard to guess and yet you tend to "try everything through." Overall, though, the Puzzles are still fair. However, our Hero cannot run, you can hardly shorten and one can assume that the Application of an Object is very popular at the other End of the respective Level. It is easy to overlook Areas of the Level because the Access Is not always clearly visible. https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1555835159 The Graphic Style is not really my Taste, a Kind of Comic Style with oversized Heads and deformed Bodies, among other things. But at least it's done very professionally. The Sound is good, the Speakers are in English (on Request with German Subtitles). The Control with the Mouse is OK. There are some Achievements that are only partially automatically unlocked, which can invite you to Linger and Try it out. Pro & Contra: + Nearly classically plain Point & Click + Pretty graphics (if one of the Style Is) + Overwhelmingly logical puzzles-Long Walkways-A kind of Unpleasant mix of childlike yet too demanding for Children's Standings: 6/10 The Game is very good and elaborate And also good to play. Nevertheless, unfortunately, he is exuded a bit of Irrelevance. Is probably a Matter Of taste.
