Human: Fall Flat [Steam, GOG] is a game I briefly looked over a while ago and it really was amusing, now even more so. This silly physics-based puzzle game now has 8 player online support.

Note: The online support seems to be Steam-only right now. I re-tested the GOG download, which seems to have not been treated with this update. Likely a case of it being designed for Steamworks.

It was already pretty bonkers playing it by myself, I can't imagine how stupid it is with a bunch of others all flailing around together. If you're after a bit of complete silliness do take a look.

About the game:

Bob is just a normal human with no superpowers, but given the right tools he can do a lot. Misuse the tools and he can do even more!

The world of Human: Fall Flat features advanced physics and innovative controls that cater for a wide range of challenges. Bob’s dreams of falling are riddled with puzzles to solve and distractions to experiment with for hilarious results. The worlds may be fantastical, but the laws of physics are very real.

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

Just picked this up for me and a friend to try out this weekend when it went on sale. I'm looking forward to it! :)

Yes. I got to try it out with my friend playing on Windows this weekend, and we had a blast. I can only imagine the chaos that would come from actually having eight people playing at once!

Some highlights included:

  • Grabbing the other person and throwing them off the map (which just respawns you at the last checkpoint, so no big deal, but still hilarious). It seems a bit like Gang Beasts (which I haven't actually played, only watched), where you can control each hand and its ability to grasp independently.

  • My friend trying to swing across a gaping chasm on a rope, Tarzan-style…and missing the other end by inches and falling in. :D

  • Learning how to climb ledges—there's a really awesome system where you raise your hands above your head, jump to catch the ledge, then look down to pull yourself up. It actually feels like you're the one doing the climbing, not just pushing a button to tell your character to do it. Jumping off a ledge hundreds of feet high and desperately catching another one to pull yourself up on to makes you feel like Indiana Jones.

  • Both of us walking together up a pivoting see-saw to jump to a ledge, simultaneously realizing it was pivoting under our weight, and leaping in sync to catch the ledge and pull ourselves up. Just needed some epic music and an explosion in the background to come out of an action movie. :D


I recorded the entire session, so I hope to have a video of the funnier bits up at some point soon-ish.
