The cult hit, ultra-stylish adventure game from Amanita Design, Machinarium, will be getting an iPad version pretty soon, the developer announced today.
Machinarium is a point-and-click adventure game in the classic sense.

It has been very well received by both fans and critics since its release in Fall 2009.

The other day on Twitter, I lamented about how hard it was for me to get over my shyness and say hello to my mat neighbor in yoga class. And then I realized it's because everything I know about being social I learned from Twitter and Facebook. And then I got a little sad when I realized that's what my generation has come to. But that's alright, because I suppose that just gives me more of a reason to use my iOS devices, right? So I can stay friends with the few people I've met IRL? Oh crap, I'm using acronyms now. I've become the problem.
