Submachine

Okay, please note this post is directed at gamers and their ilk, BUT ALSO at those who often don't play games, because these are the sort of games for them. I has played #1 in this series before, never beat it because I got bored, but #2 recently debuted on Newgrounds and with much effort and a small allotment of help from those who had already beat it I beat all three games in the series (#2 only came out on NG after #3 came out someplace else, for some reason.) The game is called Submachine (here's 2 and 3) and it--at least the first two--are essentially object puzzles after the style of, say, Discworld 2. The third is less object-y and more puzzling, but just as good. The plot involves the main character being mysteriously trapped in a building, and then an underground lighthouse, and then the titular Submachine--nothing so cliched as waking up there with no idea who you are or how you got there, no, the character knows, they just aren't telling the player. They're all pretty hard but entirely enjoyable. All of you, at least give them a try.

i know you think that you know, but how do you know that what you know is true?
