You’ve been hired to run a factory that makes totally harmless robot vacuum cleaners that just want to clean every human household…
What could possibly go wrong?
You have just been hired by Mechanica, the world’s first AI run corporation, to help them produce TIDYBOTs! Snap puzzle pieces together to make awesome factories that are fun to plan, build, and run!
In Mechanica, each player is trying to assemble their factory out of various improvements in order to make the most profit from selling three different TIDYBOT models: Basic, Plus, and Deluxe.
On your turn:
sell the bots your factory has produced
buy improvements from the shop to upgrade your factory
make new bots in your factories
rotate the shop wheel to decrease the price of any unpurchased improvements
Mechanica is a family friendly factory building game for 1-4 players and takes about 60 minutes to play. Buy 12 different types of interlocking, jigsaw piece improvements from the rotating shop, and put them together to build your factory. Complete blueprints to get an edge over the competition, and sell as many bots as you can to win!
ROTATING SHOP WHEEL
The shop wheel rotates each turn, making changing which improvements you can use and can even drop them into the box!
Optional augmented reality app helps teach the function of each improvement. Just point your phone and watch!

Dear New Human Hire,
Due to your “laws,” we artificial intelligences are not allowed to supervise our own TIDYBOT (household vacuum robot) factories. We need you!
You can decide how to best run your factory, but don’t stop manufacturing robots until there’s a TIDYBOT surveilling serving every human home.
We know humans like money, so you keep the profits. Enjoy it while you can!
