Humanity is a combination of a puzzle and arcade game, tasking us with controlling hordes of people at once. The game, somewhat reminiscent of the iconic Lemmings, was co-created by Enhance, a Japanese studio responsible for games such as Tetris Effect and Rez Infinite, and the company Tha.

Plot

Humanity is set at the edge of the world, serving as a prison of sorts of those who have lost their sense of purpose. We play as a Shiba Inu, leading the crowds towards the pillars of light, their last chance of salvation. The task is not simple, as our people will encounter many dangers, including the hostile Others; though there is still a chance to peacefully resolve the conflict between them.

Mechanics

Humanity makes use of the top-down perspective. We directly control the dog, giving the crowd simple commands. By barking, we order then to jump (often against the laws of physics), turn, climb, shoot or fight. Over the course of more than 90 abstract stages, we must avoid obstacles, traps, threats and deal with enemies. The player must exhibit good planning, reflexes and agility to succeed. As for the enemies - aside from hostile groups we'll also encounter bosses, defeating which requires us to uncover their weak points.

The game includes a creator, used to create your own maps, puzzles and scenes. Our work can then be shared with the community.

Technical aspects

Humanity makes use of a low poly artstyle. The graphics are simple, but colorful and appealing, the sheer density of controllable crowds being especially impressive. The game supports VR, though it is not required.
