Certainly, there should be plenty of room for a sequel, should the developers feel up to one. It could be another day in the same body or a new cast of characters under a completely different person's skin. Whether that happens or not, Homo MachinaÂ is yet the latest example of how even within some pretty narrow constraints in terms of setting and mechanics, it's possible to craft a pretty excellent world that is both amusing and rewarding. You might even learn something along the way, but kids, please don't use it as assistance for your upcoming biology test, because something tells me you're not going to pass it if you do.
Homo Machina is a charming and creative adventure game in almost every way, and it’s full of little surprises. The only one of these surprises that isn’t so great is that it all ends too soon. Still though, if you’re looking for something short, sweet, and fun, Homo Machina is hard to pass up.
Despite a few missteps, there's enough that Homo Machina gets right that you're going to love the time you spend with it.
