Machinarium coming to retail in Europe with extra goodies

There’s just no stopping Amanita’s point-and-click robot hero. After receiving widespread critical acclaim and being honored with over 20 gaming and design awards, Machinarium and its charming metallic protagonist will be headed to retail stores across the UK and Europe in the first quarter of 2010 for PC. Of course, the game will still be available to download via Amanita’s website, but the retail version will contain a few tasty extras that will definitely pique the interests of fans.

The box will include an art book filled with never-before-seen concept art, a poster, a printed walkthrough and best of all, a CD soundtrack of the game’s music, with 5 bonus tracks included. The game will be published by Mamba Games and is available for pre-order right now at their site. There’s no sign of a North American release yet, but I personally have no qualms about importing this snazzy package if need be. Machinarium hits European store shelves on March 5th.
