Hidden deep within Xbox's April Indie Showcase was the reveal of HUMANITY; a unique puzzle-platformer that's been out on PlayStation and PC for a year-or-so at this point. It felt as though the ID@Xbox livestream glossed over this one a little bit, but it probably shouldn't have - given how well-received the game was on PS5 last year.

We can remember the hype around its launch, and you only have to take a look at the game's aggregate review scores to see just how well this one landed back in May 2023. Open Critic has the game at an overall rating of 85, with the Metacritic score for HUMANITY currently sitting at 86 overall as well.

The actual concept of HUMANITY isn't exactly clear just looking at it, so here's how the dev team describes its striking puzzle-platformer:

"HUMANITY is a third-person puzzle-action game where you become a dog to command massive, marching crowds of people to jump, turn, push, float, shoot, and climb their way to salvation across 90 story-mode stages.

Devious puzzles and strategic thinking is broken up with more action-focused elements and platformer-like levels, even some epic boss battles!

Whether on your standard display or in the optional VR Mode, watch as breathtaking swarms of people follow your commands to the exit, all in HUMANITY’s stark iconic style, courtesy of director and celebrated visual designer Yugo Nakamura and famed game creator Tetsuya Mizuguchi (Rez Infinite, Tetris Effect: Connected)."

We'll drop a few fresh screenshots down below as well, so you can get a further glimpse of the "stark iconic style" employed with this title. Oh, and you can go hands on with HUMANITY for yourself with an Xbox Game Pass subscription on May 30th, 2024.
