LONDON—June 22, 2016
Indie publisher Curve Digital and developer No Brakes Games today revealed that their third-person, physics-based puzzle game, Human Fall Flat, will be available for Windows PC via Steam on July 22. Accompanying the announcement is a brand new, interactive trailer designed to demonstrate the game’s nonlinear, choice-based nature.
The game has ballooned in popularity over the recent months since the prototype was uploaded to indie game hosting website Itch.io, amassing over 25 million views across various YouTube channels. A mix of open-ended puzzling, charmingly simplistic visuals and laugh-out-loud gameplay has seen Human Fall Flat become a firm favorite among streamers and content creators alike, with the random exploits of players proving essential viewing for viewers on the world’s most popular video sharing website.
Assuming the role of Bob – infinitely customizable, yet with limited physical ability – players must navigate a series of bizarre dreamscapes, seeking the elusive exit which will take them one step closer to their goal. By operating Bob’s limbs independently, players must traverse wrecked trainyards, clamber over cavernous wastelands and lay siege to fairy-tale castles, all in the pursuit of… whatever it is Bob is seeking.
The full release of Human Fall Flat on Steam will enhance what players loved about the prototype, offering significantly more content. Human Fall Flat will also boast a brilliant two-player mode, which has had those who’ve had the opportunity to test it in stitches.
“July 22nd can’t come soon enough, Human Fall Flat has been a genuine labour of love, a seed of an idea that has blossomed into something which is really resonating with all who play it. Its full release is just the beginning of the journey for Bob and I’m excited to see what players make of the full version.” – Tomas Sakalauskas, No Brakes Games.
“Human Fall Flat is a rare gem indeed, everyone in the studio is stupidly excited about seeing the full release, and we know people are going to love what Tomas has put together.” – Jason Perkins, Managing Director at Curve Digital.
Developed by No Brakes Games and published by Curve Digital, Human Fall Flat is slated to launch on July 22, 2016 for Windows PC via Steam. Console versions are currently in development and are planned to become available later in the year. This title is not rated by the ESRB.
