If you’re a fan of quirky mobile games then you’ll want to check out Homo Machina — an innovative puzzle game inspired by Fritz Kahn’s famous anatomical infographics.
German physician Kahn published a number of illustrations in the first half of the twentieth century which pictured the human body as a mechanical structure governed by industrial gadgets and gizmos, and controlled by a group of tiny humanoid workers.
French studio Darjeeling has now taken this bold concept and transformed it into a puzzler for Android and iOS devices. The indie game will hit the Google Play Store on May 17 and will be a paid title with no in-app purchases (pricing TBA).
Homo Machina has already been nominated for a number of awards at different shows around the world, and it’s not hard to see why. Gameplay consists of various micro-challenges in different sections of the body, all of which are necessary to keep the wider subject alive and kicking.
If that sounds a little stressful, don’t worry. Darjeeling is aiming for a relaxed experience which simultaneously educates the player about Kahn’s incredible work. As such, the puzzles are fairly simple, requiring just a few taps and swipes to solve.
The game’s unique art style can be seen in action the trailer above. Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
