'Human: Fall Flat' Sells 30 Million Copies, Celebrates With New Labratory Level

by Rainier on July 23, 2021 @ 2:54 p.m. PDT

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.

No Brakes Games and Curve Digital are delighted to be celebrating five years of the fun and quirky physics platformer Human: Fall Flat, as shipped copies of the game hit over 30 million.

The team is also excited to announce Human: Fall Flat’s newest level Laboratory, will be released this summer. Created by ‘Buler’ the winner of the Fantastic Machines Competition who won $10,000 for his fantastic level, Laboratory will allow players to run amok in a secret lab where the forces of physics become powerful playthings! Master the majesty of magnetism and the exhilarating application of electricity inside the mysterious mountain!

Alongside the launch of the new Laboratory level, three new community designed skins will be available for players to jazz up their Humans - the Jester, Wrestler and Painter - which are the first of ten winners from the recent ‘Dress to Impress’ competition. The remaining seven winning skins will be released by the end of the year.

“We couldn’t be happier to reach this amazing milestone,” said Tomas Sakalauskas, CEO and Founder of No Brakes Games and Creator of Human: Fall Flat. “Five years ago Human Fall Flat first launched on PC with eight physics based puzzle levels, and now our game is available worldwide across PC, mobile and console platforms, includes 17 (soon to be 18!) exciting levels, and we’ve shipped over 30 million copies - we really can’t believe how far we’ve come. 

“I’d like to say a huge thank you to the amazing Human: Fall Flat community. I always wanted to make a game that inspires creators and players to build and explore new levels without any limitation and I am constantly surprised by the innovation that we see from the community each year. We look forward to many more years to come!”

5th Anniversary Level Design Competition

Don’t forget, budding level designers of all abilities have until 12th August to enter the Human: Fall Flat 5th Anniversary Level Design Competition for the chance to see their idea made into a brand new in-game level. 

The competition has already seen some incredibly imaginative entities so far and invites fans to dream big and submit their most imaginative level design ideas on social media in any creative medium they choose. Participants can draw, paint, model from plasticine or building bricks, write a short description or even bake a level shaped cake - then share a high resolution picture of their creation for the chance to win. Judges will consider entries based on the amount of imagination that went into each entry - so don’t be shy! Get stuck in and get creative!

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 Android, iOS, Switch, PS4, Xbox One and PC.
