Developer Tomas Sakalauskas discusses what’s next for Bob as he unveils a new video showing other ways to play
No Brakes Games’ Human: Fall Flat has enjoyed a spectacular opening few days on digital stores– covering its costs within the opening week. And with a “Very Positive” reaction from its Steam players, the future looks bright for Bob and his weird, open-ended dreamscapes, as developer Tomas Sakalauskas reveals:
“I’ve been absolutely blown away by the reaction to Human: Fall Flat’s release. It’s been a long journey from initial prototype to full game – and I was hoping to take a few days off, to be honest, but I’ve been digesting the feedback and I’m excited to confirm the following.
“First off, we’ll be tweaking a few things here and there – it’s clear from player feedback that some areas need a little refining. Now we’ve got the games into the hands of thousands of players, it’s clear that the numerous ways to solve the puzzles can present problems. Additionally, the co-op mode could be sign-posted better, so we’ll be addressing these issues first.
“Next up will be adding in some extra features – one which we can confirm today will be greater freedom over the camera movement so players can create even more dynamic footage of Bob and his escapades. I’ll also be looking into how users can create their own dreamscapes – once I’ve got a better idea, I’ll be sure to let the community know.
“Work on the console versions has begun in earnest and I can confirm that these will feature additional dreamscapes, which we will, of course, offer as a free update to the PC version in due course. I’ve been experimenting with additional gameplay mechanics and I think players are going to love what they see.
“Finally, whilst I always had huge faith in the game, the reaction from its players has given me even more confidence in the series. You guys are going to be seeing a lot more of Bob in the future.”
To encourage those who have yet to properly experiment with the game and its solutions, Tomas has recorded some expert footage which illustrates different ways through the environments.
