'Human: Fall Flat' (ALL) Sells More Than Four Million Units

Human: Fall Flat is a quirky, open-ended, physics-based, third-person puzzle and exploration game set in surreal, floating dreamscapes.

Your goal is to escape the dreams of falling by solving puzzles with nothing but your wits and physics.

Human Fall Flat is a surreal physics puzzle game in which players are tasked with helping Bob (a builder – but not *that* one) 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’s a game which will 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.

Publisher Curve Digital and developer No Brakes Games are today proud to announce that Human: Fall Flat has surpassed four million global sales across all platforms.

Having initially launched on Steam Early Access in 2016, the game has subsequently seen full release on PC, PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch. It also saw a mammoth 8-player online multiplayer patch for PC in November 2017, greatly expanding the audience-base of its wobbly, physics-based puzzle and exploration game.

Coinciding with this milestone, Human: Fall Flat is receiving an all new 1.4 patch today on PC that adds Japanese and Korean language options. It will tweak a handful of smaller issues too that you can read about in the patch notes.

“I’m astounded that Human: Fall Flat has reached so many people already, and with the new Japanese and Korean language options, I’m thrilled that it will reach more,” said developer Tomas Sakalauskas. “The idea that the game started out as a solo-development endeavour and now has millions of fans all over the world is truly astonishing.”

“We’ve been blown away by how Human: Fall Flat has been welcomed in Asia,” said Jason Perkins, Managing Director at Curve Digital. “With the release of Korean and Japanese languages for the game, we hope Bob’s adventures will continue to be enjoyed by even more players around the world.”

Players control Bob’s basic movement, but operate 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.

Along the way, players will learn more about the human condition – and maybe something about themselves, too.

Will you try to open that mysterious door, or would you rather see how far you can throw a speaker set out that window?

Human: Fall Flat is currently available on Switch, PS4, Xbox One and PC.
