Submachine: The Engine (abbr. SubE) is an upcoming side game in the Submachine series. This game is featured as one of Mateusz Skutnik's future goals on Patreon on the $2,000 mark.


The game was originally mentioned by the author in a forum post back in 2012; however the community was very skeptical that it would ever see its release, along with two possible titles of "Submachine: The Sewers" and "Submachine: The Farm". It was added as a Patreon development goal with the opening of the page on 4 September 2016. The goal description read:

“First of the standalone Submachine companion games, explaining a bit more about the world and the mystery. This game will be about the machines themselves, without the context of Murtaugh or other main storyline elements.”
Mateusz Skutnik

The game was later removed from the list of goals, and it was not made clear whether the game would be developed in the future.

On 10 October 2016, the game was re-added as a Patreon goal for $2000/month. The goal description read:

“First of Submachines to be created after singularity (meaning: finishing of the main series). There are still questions surrounding the world of Submachine. We can answer them in these games.”
Mateusz Skutnik

Below is a progress bar for its funding through Patreon:

In his YouTube live stream #44, Mateusz Skutnik stated that he would like to release Submachine: The Engine as the first Submachine game on Steam.
