'Human: Fall Flat' (ALL) Comes To Mobile Devices

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.

505 Games announced a partnership with fellow indie publisher Curve Digital to bring No Brakes Games’Human: Fall Flat to mobile platforms.

“505 Games are proud to bring our vast experience of faithfully developing and publishing on mobile platforms to help our friends at Curve Digital bring one of their major IPs to an even broader audience,” said505 Games President Neil Ralley. “Through our experience with Terraria and other mobile projects, we know how to optimise PC and console games to play on touch screens and ensure that the gameplay inputs and user interfaces are as intuitive as they are on other platforms.”

“Curve has sold over 5 million copies of Human: Fall Flat on PC and console, so we’re delighted to work with 505 on the mobile version. Their experience in marketing premium games on that platform is really important to us and No Brakes Games, the developer,” said Dominic Wheatley, CEO of Curve Digital.

The mobile versions of Human: Fall Flat are currently in development with Dutch developer Codeglue who were responsible for the original Terraria mobile ports.

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.
