No Brakes Games‘ Human: Fall Flat shows that physics-based puzzlers can be hilarious affairs sometimes.
Everyday heroes aren’t always easy to find in gaming, but builder Bob is one such strange individual whose recurrent dreams of falling make him likeable despite his lack of a face or even other distinguishable features. The world he inhabits is full of objects that can be pulled, pushed, carried around and broken. Climbing and using the environment to overcome obstacles in all kinds of creative ways is all part of the story and gameplay.
The real star of the show is obviously the main protagonist whose direct control of body parts by the player leads to very amusing animations. It feels a bit like multiplayer arena brawler Gang Beasts, but only in the funny movements of its main character. The rest is quite different, as it’s an open world that can also be explored with an additional player, which can only mean more ridiculous moments of gravity downfalls. Being able to paint the main character and using real world textures with a webcam also sounds like a lot of customization fun.
The fantastically-looking game is now available on PC, but it’s also coming soon for consoles with the help of publisher Curve Digital.
