London, UK – 22 July 2021: Today, No Brakes Games and Curve Digital are delighted to be celebrating five years of the fun and quirky physics platformer Human: Fall Flat, as shipped copies of the game hit over 30 million.
The team is also excited to announce Human: Fall Flat’s newest level Laboratory, will be released this summer. Created by ‘Buler’ the winner of the Fantastic Machines Competition who won $10,000 for his fantastic level, Laboratory will allow players to run amok in a secret lab where the forces of physics become powerful playthings! Master the majesty of magnetism and the exhilarating application of electricity inside the mysterious mountain! Alongside the launch of the new Laboratory level, three new community designed skins will be available for players to jazz up their Humans - the Jester, Wrestler and Painter - which are the first of ten winners from the recent ‘Dress to Impress’ competition. The remaining seven winning skins will be released by the end of the year.
“We couldn’t be happier to reach this amazing milestone,” said Tomas Sakalauskas, CEO and Founder of No Brakes Games and Creator of Human: Fall Flat. “Five years ago Human Fall Flat first launched on PC with eight physics based puzzle levels, and now our game is available worldwide across PC, mobile and console platforms, includes 17 (soon to be 18!) exciting levels, and we’ve shipped over 30 million copies - we really can’t believe how far we’ve come.
“I’d like to say a huge thank you to the amazing Human: Fall Flat community. I always wanted to make a game that inspires creators and players to build and explore new levels without any limitation and I am constantly surprised by the innovation that we see from the community each year. We look forward to many more years to come!”

About Human: Fall Flat
Human: Fall Flat is a hilarious, light-hearted physics platformer set in a world of floating dreamscapes. Each dream level provides a new environment to navigate, from mansions, castles and Aztec adventures to snowy mountains, eerie nightscapes and industrial locations. Multiple routes through each level, and perfectly playful puzzles ensure exploration and ingenuity are rewarded. Of course, your Human's wobbly movements don't make things easy, and whether you're jumping, climbing, carrying or swinging, things can easily go very wrong - with very funny results. Human: Fall Flat can be played solo or with up to 8 players online for even more laughter.
