No chance to see that on Desura, DRM/internet-free

"The moral of this story: No-one wants to play The Ingenious Machine on a desktop computer, but people like it as a mobile game. "
On the other hand, I would like to understand the reason why the game is 0,73 € on Android Google play but 2,49 € on PC Desura.
It's note the extra 1,76 € that puzzle me, but the rational behind that difference.
I have seen games at the 10 € size on PC plateform sold at 1 € on Android or iPhone. What's the meaning of all that ?

A great little gem, new concept, simple but efficient, a perfect blend of gaming and learning.
Need translations though (only English as of version 0.95)

Looks neat.
Would like to see it not on Steam but on a DRM-free plateforme such as Desura.

Hi Blamedrop,

I like the idea very much and would be the first to buy it (supposed it is classic windows, portable, DRM-free - no Steam please-, and has at least one off-line mode so that I can leave it to play to my children on an internet-free machine).

However there are serious problems in the current (2014-06-25) demo :
- there is no sufficient differences between gates. Instead of grey spheres, why not simply use the AND OR XOR etc symbol as the basic shape for each gate ? This would not only make it easier to differanciate gates on the board, it would also teach people the symbols themselves. Also please make it color-blind compatible somehow (larger beams ? dotted beams ? more contrasted beams ?).
- there is a serious commands problem, they need simplification. For example, why not just click on a gate to rotate it by increments ?
- I would like, personnally, the possibility to play on a 2D plane (from above the board). I do'nt really see the point in the 3D in that kind of games.
- you are note seriously expecting people to type "continue" to change level, are you ? I know there is a button to shunt that step but well ...
- Would there be a way to avoid most of the scroll bars on the tutorials and various text boxes by displaying larger boxes maybe ?

Great game anyway

Excellent game, a bit step and missing explanations for novices.
Some explanation about the left numbers would be welcome, for example.
Interface is Spartan, but the brain pleasure is there.

For education purposes, it would be great to have a special, optional mode where the projected pathis displayed and updated in real-time while populating the graph editor.

Please, allow translations in other languages (while keeping the software portable, of course).

Would be nice to know some details regarding the distribution method (DRM-free ? Portable ?) if not to much to ask ?

Some precision regarding possibility of translation into other languages would be fine also.

Very nice comcept, very clever and devious puzzles, but I found (playing with the demo last december) that control by the mouse is a bit difficult (easy to go the wrong route).
Maybe this has been fixed since ?
Still, I give it a solid 8

Is is the case of the full version as well ?

It is not clear to me from the trailer if this is mainly a puzzler or mainly a plateformer.
Any hint ?
Is this fast paced, requiring fast fingers, or mainly brain-powered ?

Great game, just baught it.
But its bad keys are not mapable.
WASD is very unfriendly for keyboard other than plain English.
A possibility to use arrows direction keys would be great for the next update !
