Contraption Maker graduates from Early Access

Sandbox game Contraption Maker — a spiritual successor for Sierra Entertainment's puzzle building game The Incredible Machine — has left Steam Early Access and is now available as a full release for Mac and Windows PC, developer Spotkin announced.

In Contraption Maker, players use objects to create chain reactions and solve puzzles. The game launched via Early Access in September 2013. The 1.0 version, which you can check out in the trailer above, includes changes made during the game's six alpha releases and beta testing. According to an announcement on Steam, Spotkin will continue to improve upon the game.

"Just because we are out of Early Access now doesn't mean that work on the game is stopping," the post reads. "We will continue to have regular updates to the game that will add new puzzles, new features, new parts and improve upon the usability of the game. This may be the end of Early Access, but it's the beginning of something great that we are so excited about!"

Spotkin added that Android, iOS and Steambox versions of Contraption Maker are "on the roadmap for release."
