The Incredible Machine (TIM) is a video game series in which players construct a variety of Rube Goldberg devices. They were originally designed and coded by Kevin Ryan, produced by Jeff Tunnell’s now-defunct Jeff Tunnell Productions, and published by Dynamix; the 1993–1995 versions shared the same development team, but the later 2000–2001 games had different designers. Sierra Entertainment published all versions. PushButton Labs, founded by Jeff Tunnell, purchased the entire series and intellectual property in October 2009. Pushbutton Labs was later acquired by Playdom, which is a division of Disney Interactive, so The Walt Disney Company now owns the rights.
As the spiritual successor to the Incredible Machine series, Jeff Tunnell announced a new game called Contraption Maker in 2013. Spotkin Games, founded by Jeff Tunnell, produced it, and it features the same developers as the original Incredible Machine. On July 7, 2014, it was released via Steam for Windows and OS X.

The overarching goal of The Incredible Machine game is to construct a series of Rube Goldberg devices: arrange a given collection of objects in an overly complicated manner in order to perform some simple task (such as “put the ball into a box” or “start a mixer and turn on a fan”). Objects available range from simple ropes and pulleys to electrical generators, bowling balls, and even cats, mice, and humans, with the majority of them having specific interactions with or reactions to other objects. Mice, for example, will flee towards nearby cheese. The levels usually have some fixed objects that the player cannot move, so the only way to solve the puzzle is to carefully arrange the given objects around the fixed items. There is also a “freeform” option, which allows the user to “play” with all of the objects with no set goal, or to create their own puzzles with goals for other players to try to solve.
Notably, The even more Incredible Machine simulates the game not only physical interactions between objects but also environmental effects such as changing air pressure and gravity. In its physics simulation, the engine does not use a random number generator, ensuring that the results for any given machine are reproducible.
