This is really fucking rad. Thanks for making it!
MANUFACTURING PEOPLE'S OPINION
You have to manipulate people's opinion via news programs.
In this game, you transform newsworthy events into the news. To do so, you have to organize the material linked to each one to evoke an emotion that will mold the public consent. Use that to favor one of the two presidential candidates of Platanal.
[ important ] The web version of the game is a post jam release. To play the one we uploaded during it, download one of the zips below.

The machine's programmer: Andrés Luján (@andres-root)
While we were working on the design of this entry, we decided to ask a couple of friends to build an actual machine that was a small representation of its bigger brother: M.i.M.o. (M.i.M.o. v0.3, we called it). We hope we get selected to showcase the physical version of Machinaria at GDC 2019's Alt.Ctrl.

Hello! The web version of the game just goes black after i get the letter for completing the events of the election and getting the ticket to leave to the next nation. I am just wondering if that is an intentional ending or if I was meant to continue from there. Thank you!
First of all, thanks for playing. And to answer your question, that's the end of this version of game, we're actually working on the one that shows what happens in Hunuragha (the next nation). How did you like it?
