In the latest episode of our 15 Minutes of Fame YouTube series I take a look at Human Fall Flat from No Brakes Games.
In Human Fall Flat you take control of a Pillsbury Doughboy-like character named Bob, who must solve physics-based environmental puzzles to proceed to the next level. Puzzle solutions are truly up to the player as there are many routes to success, which makes up most of the fun in this title.
The physics are spot on, so even controlling Bob can get a bit hairy in tight platforming situations. He almost moves like the runner in QWOP, but with a bit more grace, and much less frustration. The true gem of this game is definitely its puzzles, which require out-of-the-box type of thinking to master. The cheeky writing helps to keep the adventure feeling humors as an ominous narrator chastises you for various gameplay tropes such as pushing buttons and always feeling the need to open doors in a game. Bob himself also has a bit of charm to him, so he can become quite endearing to you during gameplay.
You can see Bob in action above in the new 15 Minutes of Fame episode. If you do like what you see the game is now on Steam’s Greenlight platform, so throw it a vote to help No Brakes Games out if you feel it deserves it.
