A short combinatorial Twine game with tons of options , February 3, 2016

Related reviews: IF Comp 2015

This was one of the most-played IFComp 2015 games, most likely due to its intriguing premise (a machine that can do anything!) and its shortness.

What happens is that you pick one of a few different openings that affects the flavor text of the game, and get a semi-random ending. In between is the real meat of the game: a visually beautiful form of sorts where you place different attributes (like quantity or sound) into 2-3 slots and combine them to something new.

Many combinations don't work, but there's a manual that helps. After tinkering around a bit, you should look at the walkthrough and see just how much WAS implemented.

Overall, short but fun for a moment.

How can plebs find out how many times each IF Comp 2015 game was played?

It's just a guess; Growbotics was reviewed by a ton of people early on, which suggested to me that many people were playing it. Although ifcomp.org shows that less votes were cast for this game than many others, so maybe my guess was wrong.
