Submachine 5: the root

The fifth episode of the Submachine series. This time we go back to the very first submachine ever built - historically speaking. It was created by an unknown scientist in the early 20th century. This is the place where it all started.

I like how the 'make your own notes' feature has evolved into the game just writing it down for you. Making your own notes is fun, but it can distract from the game sometimes.

It took me an hour and a half to finish it but great game. I'm addicted.

This series truly is amazing. I never did beat most of these when they first came out (I was pretty young back then), but playing them again and seeing them for what they truly are after learning the conclusion makes them even more amazing.

A brilliant game, even 8 years later. I'm playing through the entire series again as a sort of "farewell tour" after playing the final episode, and they're all just as good as I remember. (For the record, though, I highly doubt this is my last play through.) My favorite part of this one was the automatic note-taking. All the info was in one place without having to search through various letters to find that one coordinate set you needed. Dorky, but true. Thank you for this incredible series!
