About Unmechanical


Unmechanical is an award-winning 2.5D side-scroller which combines tricky puzzle solving, alluring exploration, and an engrossing atmosphere. The game had humble beginnings as a student project and since then both game and team has grown. Unmechanical focuses on accessible controls that makes it easy to pick up and play, and challenges you with a wide range of challenging puzzles.

On a bright and sunny day you’re spirited away by a network of coiled pipes into a mysterious underworld. You find yourself in a strange environment that pulsates from mechanic and organic machinery alike, and your journey to freedom begins. Flying freely through the odd and fantastic surroundings, a powerful tractor beam lets you pick up objects and interact with the world.

Your quest for freedom requires you to solve a great variety of puzzling challenges, and while it’s easy to pick up and play, later challenges may prove very difficult indeed. On your adventure you might also begin to understand what it all means–The underworld may be more than it seems, the fateful descent more than just chance, and you might not be entirely alone after all…


  • Intuitive and simple controls, applied to a great range of interactions.
  • A carefully created world with unique environments and an engrossing atmosphere.
  • More than 30 unique puzzles, including logic-, physics-, and memory- oriented.
  • Uncover a very dark secret through strange clues and fantastic events.
  • Over three hours of puzzle-solving and exploration.



Q: Why does Unmechanical look different on my device than the screenshots on this page?
A: The Screenshots were taken on an iPad 3. For optimization reasons the game needed to look simpler on iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPod Touch 4 and iPad 1 than the newer devices. The gameplay doesn’t differ however!


Q: Will the game be available on other platforms (Ouya, Xbox360, Playstation3 and more)?
A: The future will tell!


Q: What’s the story in Unmechanical?
A: We are portraying the story via ingame events and the environment in Unmechanical. We as developers do have our vision of what the story is, but this way of presenting a games story inevitably will lead to different interpretations. Who’s to say yours is wrong?


Q: Will there be DLC?
A: It depends a lot on how well the game fares saleswise, but we do have cool ideas for DLC already!


Q: Will the game be available on Linux or other *nix platforms?
A: At the moment it’s hard to say, as for Mac we’d love it, but it depends on technical thingaroos! It might work using Wine, but that’s not officially supported.


Q: My game doesn’t save even though it says ”Saving”. When I close the game and open it again I have to start from the beginning! Why?
A: You might either have moved your Documents folder to a non-standard location, or have unsupported characters in your Documents path (for example å, ä, ö), both cases are unsupported by the Unreal engine, hence it can’t save or load. To get around this issue, browse your way to your installation folder and \Binaries\Win32 where you can find UDK.exe, launch that directly instead.


Q: My game crashes, doesn’t load properly or I get this error!
A: Send us your logfile and we’ll take a look at what might’ve caused the crash. It can be located in Documents\My Games\Unmechanical\UDKGame\Logs, called Launch.log.


Q: Some kind of bug in the game caused me to not be able to continue playing, I’m somehow stuck!
A: Tell us what happened when you were playing and what seems to be wrong, together with your save files and we’ll take a look at them if needed. You can find your save files in Documents\My Games\Unmechanical\SavedElements, put them in a zip or rar file and send them our way.

Important Note:

We’ve had issues with the game not working properly on Intel HD Graphics Family of graphics-cards. The game often crashes when playing using these cards, even though their specifications match our requirements. It might be due to out-of-date drivers, but that might also unfortunately not help, so if you’re equipped with one of these we can’t currently guarantee a smooth playing experience. We’re looking into solving this 🙂
