Humanity Features Large Crowds and Funny Physics

Sony started their September 24th State of Play with the weird project known as Humanity.

Looking quite a bit like a really weird version of TABS, the game features various humans making long snake-like chains and fighting off other large crowds. Jumping off of gravity pads, climbing up walls, and getting into laser fights. The trailer showed various scenes of hilarious floods of people doing weird things.

After the show, we got a press e-mail from Enhanced, who has also worked on games like Rez and Tetris Effect. They're intentionally keeping the game somewhat mysterious, even saying they're keeping "key features like controls, gameplay mechanics, and narrative elements" a secret until a future date sometime next year. What the press e-mail did at least tell us is that Humanity is compatible with PlayStation VR and will be playable with or without the headset.

In the e-mail we also learn that Humanity is being co-developed by tha ltd., a Tokyo-based design studio and their first step into gaming. Creative Director and founder of tha, Yugo Nakamura, had the following to say about the game and working with Enhanced:

I’ve long admired the work of Mizuguchi-san and his team; it feels like the perfect fit to be working with the people who made games like Rez and Tetris Effect. Everyone at tha is working hard to make HUMANITY something that likewise engages all your senses—a fun, challenging game, but also something more meaningful than that. Rest assured we have lots more to show and talk about...
Humanity will be launching in 2020. We'll be updating this article as we learn more about the game.

How do you feel about Humanity? Is it nothing more than a miserable little pile of secrets? Do you think it joins Death Stranding as a strand game? Will you have at it? Let us know in the comments below!
