not your standard robopocalypse
I played through a Shockwave "game" called Little Wheel. I put game in quotes because it's not really a game so much as a interactive art piece. In a sepia-toned world full of motionless machines, Little Wheel is awakened and has to bring power back to the other robots via linear puzzle-solving - it reminded me of the gameplay from Oddworld but plus a vast number of hints and minus the
graphically violent awesomely gruesome deaths. It takes less than ten minutes to play through, but I'd play a longer game of it. It also has a near-steampunky feel, and made me want to go reread the archive of Girl Genius. Pretty neat.
