SpaceChem

I've mentioned this game before, but I feel compelled to mention it again.

In SpaceChem you have to automate some reactors to accept input of atoms and molecules, rip them apart, and rearrange them to output waste and the proper molecules.

I think y'all should get it. It'd be nice to have someone to bounce ideas off with.

I love SpaceChem! Such a great game.

Also, the soundtrack is fantastic.

I'll first play the Codex of Alchemical Engineering before giving this a shot. I heard they're very similar and by the same author.

Hey Parraka, how far along are you?

It was actually finding out that SpaceChem was made by the same person that made the Codex of Alchemical Engineering that made me check it out. They're both fantastic games. That's the sort of puzzle game that gets me all hot and bothered. Anything that I have to automate. Something about knowing that I'm participating in the enslavement of humanity by our future robot overlords. Mmmmmm.

You'll be surprised how easy it is to get into these if you set your mind to it. That said, it will probably require critical thinking skills and a problem solving mind to finish all of them. I've noticed that it's much easier to learn and do than one might expect, if his other games are any indication.

Dude... A game that's easy to learn but hard to play... Baduk. Favorite. Game. Ever.

I got a $140 board. It's an amazing game.

Well, hard is relative. In most of his other games only the really high end levels required me to think twice. Though SpaceChem might be different...

The last mission I stopped at was the third one on Alkonost. I don't recall being stuck on it, so I think I'll pick this game up again and keep going. Not sure why I ever stopped in the first place!
