Coding game 7 Billion Humans is the sequel to Human Resource Machine

Coming from the creators of World of Goo and Human Resource Machine, 7 Billion Humans is a programming game that lets you automate multiple humans at once.

In what is good news for Human Resource Machine fans, Tomorrow Corporation has announced a sequel to the programming game. It’s titled 7 Billion Humans, and it lets you program multiple puny office workers at once.

7 Billion Humans features a new programming language for you to get your hands dirty with. While the original was based off of Assembly and let you control a single human at a time, 7 Billion Humans expands the field, letting you control what is essentially a parallel computer. Made of human beings.

The game features over 60 levels with all kinds of new challenges, but newbies need not be intimidated, as the developers promise that all the skills required to play the game will be taught in-game. No programming expertise is required!

Check out the announcement trailer below.

The original Human Resource Machine released in 2015 for PC and Mac, and it had you programming a single office worker to fulfil specific challenges. The game has since been ported to Wii U, Linux, iOS, Android and Switch.

7 Billion Humans is being developed by the same developer, Tomorrow Corporation, which previously made Little Inferno and whose members were responsible for the indie classic World of Goo. Developer Kyle Gabler will be composing the soundtrack for the game as usual, which is exciting news for fans of his music such as myself.

7 Billion Humans is set to release sometime in early 2018 on PC, Mac, Linux (via Steam) and Switch. Here’s the official website.
