Human: Fall Flat - Curve Digital
Hello Humans,

The moment we’ve all been waiting for has finally come – multiplayer beta testers can now play the entire game online with their friends.



Yep, from the opening to the Aztec, all of Human: Fall Flat is unlocked for online multiplayer. We’re going to leave this build with you guys for a few weeks before we push the mode public, so please do continue to try to play the game in as many unexpected ways as possible.

A couple of other tweaks to tell you about:
  • Holding TAB in multiplayer will now show you the player names
  • Reload checkpoint in the pause menu is enabled for clients, respawning only their characters
  • Added “lock level” option in the lobby settings to prevent someone accidentally progressing to the next level
We’ve also added some new chat commands:
  • / list – displays a list of players in the game
  • / mute – N – mutes/unmutes the player with number N
  • / kick N – kicks the player (only works if you’re the host)
I do hope you enjoy. Once we’ve ironed out any subsequent issues, we’ll be pushing this to public BETA and then to the full release, so expect more and more Humans to be online over the coming weeks.

Next for us? Well, now we’ve figured out online multiplayer, we’re looking at ways of giving you more content. Oh, and a Festive treat, too.

Until next time,

Tomas Sakalauskas

Hello Humans, and welcome to this week’s multiplayer update - which today unlocks the Power Plant level.



A couple of wider updates debut in this build – we’ve enabled the in-game shell, which can be accessed by hitting ` (top left key). Feel free to tinker with the commands, which can be viewed by typing "?" [enter]. If you’re struggling with specific context for an individual command, type "?" followed by the command name to see its usage.

We’ve also bumped fog control from the comma and period keys into the free-roam camera.

As ever, have fun with this build – but do expect the occasional issue. We’re aiming for full, public release of online multiplayer towards the end of this month.

Enjoy!

Hello Humans!

Thank you so much for being part of our online journey as we head towards a full public release of Human: Fall Flat multiplayer.

So far we’ve seen Bob wobble across land, fly through air in a catapult – and now it’s time to take to the sea, as we unlock the water level for you to try in online multiplayer.



This update also brings with it a couple of fixes – if you’re hosting, you should find things a little less jittery, and we’ve nerfed an issue where certain combinations of players would break the server. We’ve also made it clearer how to start the co-op experience. As ever, thanks for all of your feedback.

We’re enormously grateful for your help and patience as we gradually work towards the full public release. If you’ve not yet opted into the beta, complete instructions are below – please see recent updates for caveats

tl;dr. – We’re unlocking things bit by bit, and there will inevitably be things which are broken).

But enough from me this week. It’s time to dive in.

Yours,

Tomas Sakalauskas

Hello Humans! Welcome to this week’s new multiplayer build.

As mentioned last week, we’re excited to invite you to into this early preview of how the final online multiplayer levels will work – and today we are unlocking the Siege level in addition to those we premiered last week.

In addition to a whole new level to enjoy with your friends, we’ve implemented a couple of new camera features.

You can now adjust the game’s field of view and play with the camera smoothing so that the game displays and moves to your own personal preference.

Access these settings in Options >> Controls and play with them as you please.

For an optimum online multiplayer experience, you should ensure that the best PC – capable of running the game at 60 frames per second or higher – is selected as the game’s host, and that the ping between it and the other players is under 100ms. It is playable with a higher ping, though you will find time-sensitive actions like jumping and climbing more difficult.

Whilst we work towards a full, public release of the multiplayer beta hopefully next month, you should expect there to be some teething problems, so please do bear that in mind if you decide to try this beta.

For those of you who have yet to opt in to the beta, instructions for participating are detailed below.

As ever, we’re excited to see how you guys get on with the new online multiplayer beta. Please do bear in mind you should expected unusual behaviour at this stage – but if you’re happy to mess around with the version as it stands, we can’t wait to hear about your experiences.

Yours,

Tomas Sakalauskas

Hello Humans!

It’s with huge pleasure that we’re now able to offer you the first official sneak peek into the world of online multiplayer.
From today, anyone who wants to experience a world with many Bobs can select the special beta branch and dive straight in (full instructions below).



It’s still very definitely in alpha, so please do go in with an open mind and expect things to be less than perfect. We’re opening the game up a little at a time – so while there are only four multiplayer levels available right now, we’re aiming to update the game every Thursday until everything is unlocked.

We’re really excited to see how you get on with this - please do continue to send us your gifs and post videos of your exploits as you uncover new ways to play.

We anticipate making the multiplayer mode available within the main game towards the end of October where access will be simpler. But we know there are some of you out there who just can’t wait, and so we are delighted to welcome you into the all new world of Humans: Fall Flat.

Best,
Tomas Sakalauskas

Humble’s latest Bundle is the ninth in the series of Jumbo bundles. As the name suggests, these gather up larger and more popular indie gems into one big package where – as per normal – the more you pay, the more you get.

This ninth Jumbo bundle includes river-bound roguelike The Flame in the Flood, Left4Deadalike Warhammer Vermintide, clumsylike platformer Human Fall Flat, trenchalike shooter Verdun and we-really-like American Truck Simulator, among others for up to $10/ 8. A portion of your money will go to fund the AbleGamers Foundation charity or any other charity of your choosing if you have a specific one in mind.

The Humble Jumbo Bundle 9 is live now and up for the better part of the next two weeks, if it seems like your thing. More games are set to be added at the end of next week, as well, so check back to see what else your money will have gotten you.

Hello fellow Humans.

There has been a lot of speculation since our anniversary post – not to mention some cheeky in-game detective work – so we’d like to officially reveal that online multiplayer is coming to Human: Fall Flat soon.



But while its formal launch is a few weeks away, we will soon be officially giving anyone who is interested the opportunity to play with online multiplayer as it enters beta – which could be as early as next week.

This mode won’t be anywhere near finished – it initially only be available in limited levels, and we can't offer any tech support for issues you may encounter – but if you are eager to play around with other humans, we’ll reveal how to get involved next week.

Even more excitingly, this update is just the start of what we have planned for Human: Fall Flat.

We’ll have much, much more for you over the coming year – so stay tuned for more info.

Yours,

Tomas Sakalauskas

Happy Birthday, Humans!

Today marks the first anniversary of Human: Fall Flat.

And with that here's a message with very interesting news from Human: Fall Flat's creator, Tomas Sakalauskas.



Hello Humans,
What a journey it has been. From a small prototype to hundreds of thousands of players across PC and console – every single one of you has played a part in writing Bob’s story, and I could not be more grateful.

Since first launch, we’ve been working hard to expand the game in line with what you want to play. And whilst I need to remain cryptic for just a little longer, I’m pleased to say that one of the most requested features is not too far away.

Stay tuned for more information about how to access experimental new features over the coming few weeks – I’m really excited about what we’re bringing to Human: Fall Flat and can’t wait to welcome many more Humans into Bob’s world.

Thank you for your support, enthusiasm and feedback over the last 12 months. I would not be here without you, and I can’t wait to see what the coming years will bring.

Yours,
Tomas Sakalauskas

Achievements – The Aztec level brings with it some new achievements for the Human: Fall Flat pros out there. We reckon they’re going to test your skills. If you manage to get them all please do share screenshots of your victories in the forum and reap the glory.
