Human Fall Flat may just be the biggest game you’ve never heard of…but it’s coming to a PC and console near you this summer. Fancy getting down and dirty with the deets?
A game like no other, Human Fall Flat started out as a prototype from one man. Tomas Sakalauskas, the brains behind No Brakes Games is a bit of a YouTube phenomenon and with the help of Curve Digital will be seeing Human Fall Flat appear on PC and consoles later this year.
A surreal physics puzzle game, players are tasked with helping Bob escape his surreal dreamscapes. The world of Bob’s dreams are built on his daily experiences, hopes, fears and memories, crafted into nightmarish puzzles by the nefarious dream maker. At its heart, it’ll make you laugh. Bob is a human. No hero, no super powers. Bob’s journey is as random as it is surreal – with no fixed solutions to the obstacles he must overcome. Taking the form of open-ended sandbox levels in which players can experiment with solutions, Bob must traverse this beautiful yet deadly world in a bid to understand what’s powering his dreams.
It will be up to you to control Bob’s basic movement, by operating his arms independently, making his journey haphazard, hilarious and fraught with danger. Bob can pull stuff. He can push stuff. He can kick stuff. He can carry stuff. He can climb stuff. He can break stuff. And he can use stuff on other stuff to make other stuff happen.
As you help Bob progress, you’ll learn more about the human condition – and maybe actually find out something about yourself too!
“I’ve been flabbergasted by the attention Human Fall Flat has been receiving recently,” says Tomas Sakalauskas. “From one screen at the Microsoft press event at GDC to over eight million views on YouTube, it’s been quite the journey. Ever since I made a prototype available on itch.io, the reaction has been incredible. Working with Curve Digital will not only allow me to focus on the game, but to reach an even wider audience than I first dreamed.”
“As soon as I met Tomas and saw the game, I knew we had to work together,” says Simon Byron, Publishing Director, Curve Digital. “Human Fall Flat is a rare exception: a joy to play – and to watch, which explains its popularity on YouTube over recent weeks. Having heard Tomas’s plans for the launch of the game and beyond, we’re really excited to be helping Human Fall onto as many formats as possible.”
We will of course let you know once an exact release date for Human Fall Flat is announced.
