Cogs is an innovative puzzle game where players build an incredible variety of machines from sliding tiles. Immersed in a steampunk world with stunning visual design, Cogs is pure eye candy. Players can choose from 50 levels and 3 gameplay modes. New puzzles are unlocked by building contraptions quickly and efficiently.

  • Inventor Mode: Starting with simple puzzles, players are introduced to the widgets that are used to build machines — gears, pipes, balloons, chimes, hammers, wheels, props, and more.
  • Time Challenge Mode: If you finish a puzzle in Inventor Mode, it will be unlocked here. This time, it will take fewer moves to reach a solution, but you only have 30 seconds to find it.
  • Move Challenge Mode: Take your time and plan ahead. Every click counts when you only get ten moves to find a solution.

It's 75% off on Steam until January 2nd but full priced here, I don't understand why do you exclude Desura users (I won't buy on Steam as they don't support linux).

Look around you.. do you know where you are?
If anything it should be the non-indie games that are free.

its perfectly valid to ask money for the hard work of indie developers, people think indie means free, but not because you are not a big company mean you do not deserve any money.

so small grocery stores cant sell goods, because walmart does? hahahaha
