ESRB listing reveals Machinarium on Vita
The charming point-and-click Machinarium is coming to PlayStation Vita, according to a listing on the Entertainment Software Rating Board site.
The ESRB carries a listing for the game for release on Mac, PC, PlayStation 3, but also the PS Vita.
It grants an E for Everyone rating, which isn’t a surprise to anybody, even though it contains ‘comic mischief’ and the ‘use of tobacco’.
The rating summary states:
‘[Machinarium] is an adventure-puzzle game in which players assume the role of a discarded robot (Josef) that must defuse a bomb and rescue its girlfriend.
“Players sometimes advance the storyline by playing tricks on other robots (e.g., scattering marbles to make one character slip and fall, electrocuting a robot cat); one cutscene depicts a character getting hit with a slingshot, resulting in a ‘dizzy-stars’ effect.
“During one extended sequence, players must construct a makeshift cigarette for another robot to smoke; another sequence depicts a character smoking a pussy-willow plant like a cigar or cigarette.
Machinarium was originally due to come to PlayStation 3 in February 2012, however this never materialised. The game was originally released in October 2009.
