Play OverviewPlay Overview

Homo Machina (2019) is a point-and-click adventure game where you solve puzzles from the inside of someone's body. It's inspired by the surreal avant-garde scientist Fritz Kahn. Play involves exploring and interacting with each bodily location to trigger solutions that let you progress.

It's a puzzle game where the internal workings of the human body are represented as a gigantic 1920s factory. You are plunged into this system of nerves, vessels, pumps and valves to help the body function correctly. As you progress you work your way through thirty steps that take you through the entire day: opening your eyes, chewing a toast or listening to music, through seamless navigation and intuitive gameplay.

The result is a peculiar puzzle that is as intriguing as it is educational.
