Submachine 5: the root

Share Collapse

Author Comments

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.


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!

Point and Click Awesomeness!

Amazing game! Might even be one of my favourites. I absolutely love how it references other games. Makes everything seem "connected". The puzzles are really good and balanced - not too hard, but not too easy. I like the automatic notes thing, it just makes the game better - in other games I would need to find names for things or write them down on a piece of paper, but not this one! Overall, I have nothing bad to say about this.
