Opus Magnum joins PC Game Pass

Opus Magnum is the latest open-ended puzzle game from Zachtronics, makers of SpaceChem, Infinifactory, and Shenzhen I/O. Design and build machines that assemble potions, poisons and more using the Alchemy Engineer’s most advanced tool: the Transmutation Engine!

Opus Magnum is an open-ended puzzle game where you are tasked with designing, building, and optimizing machines that perform alchemical processes using a number of different components. It first launched on Steam in 2017 and received great reviews from critics and gamers. On Metacritic, Opus Magnum has a Metascore score of 90 (albeit from just four reviews) and sits with an “overwhelmingly positive” rating on Steam out of nearly 4,000 reviews.

At the moment we do not have the achievements of the Opus Magnum, but we expect them to be available soon.
