This is a school project I've been working on sporadically for two weeks now. It's an exploration of both the idea of mapping chronology in a somewhat nonlinear way as well as the idea that technological and cultural advancement aren't always the same; pressing the button every time it comes up will lock you into a cycle that repeats some of the "worst" stages of the little planet's history.

I'll let the rest speak for itself. Enjoy!

NOTE: I KNOW IT HAS NO SOUND. If I had the extra week I'd hoped for rather than a frenzied day of work at the last minute, I would have made some. I may still do so in the next month or two. There's no need to mention this in your reviews.

EDIT: Hey, daily third! That makes this my first award-winning piece on Newgrounds! Thanks a lot to everyone who's taken the time to play with the Machine, and especially those of you who have voted and written reviews!

It's alright, it's very repetitive. Get's boring after a while.

so bad the same thing happens over and over

If you are still up for working on this, here are my suggestions:
1. Put something between the temple and the castle that resembles a Roman period.
2. Put something between the castle and the factory, that would resemble the Rennaisance.
3. Sound of course would be great.
4. Maybe you could put a way to get to two endings from a choice to go backwards in the earlier game to make a total of four endings.

Other than that, I thought it was a great idea, kinda realistic, and great!

Fun game. Wiii, flying skyscrapers :)

Could have been a bit longer. Also, what does the yellow pie with a red thing on top, before it becomes the castle, represent?? I have no idea other than a pie...

I didn't have patience to play it. For me the window was quite too small. I have my desktop with resolution of 1680x1050 and I almost saw nothing (yeah, I knew what was going on but in that kind of game where author want to say something he should work much on plot but also on graphics and presentation of idea - for me it could be better in that second matter). No sound is not being mention by me :) Rating would have been lower but +1 or maybe even +2 for your artistic approach. Keep on going!
