Play OverviewPlay Overview

Humanity (2023) is a puzzle-action game where you are a lone Shiba Inu dog shepherding a huge marching crowd of people to safety. You place commands to get your flock of humans to jump, turn, push, float, shoot, and climb their way to deal with the "others" and claim their salvation. It stands out not only for the Lemmings-like challenge but for the playful flow of solving its puzzles and the surprisingly coherent narrative.

Humanity is a game about solving complex problems in playful engagement, one step at a time. It blends puzzle-solving with the need for good reactions to traverse the platforms as your dog character. To play you run around the arena level to get ahead of the crowd and place commands ready for when they get to that point. Get this right and they all happily work their way to the exit.

The result is a game about what humanity can achieve together. It revels in systems flow theory and the power of command. There's a large library of stages created by other players for you to play, rate, and discover new types of puzzles. Whether played through VR or on a screen, it's a great way to immerse yourself as you tower over the teeming, ant-like population.
