With the advent of new technology, plenty of games force you to make ridiculous yoga poses for its own amusement, but most of these rely on personal training, a la WiiFit and Xbox Fitness.

Contraption Maker Announced by Incredible Machine Devs

Everybody remember The Incredible Machine series? Way back in the early to mid 90s, a series of puzzle games was released that essentially let you build your own Rube Goldberg devices.

The team behind those classic games is working on Contraption Maker, a spiritual sequel to The Incredible Machine that promises to bring back the same free-form puzzle solving we fell for back in the good old days.

The Behemoth, the guys that brought you the legendary co-op side-scroller, Castle Crashers, have in the works their newest title, BattleBlock Theater.
