Humanity Review: Mizuguchi's latest game is another abstract masterpiece - Rice Digital

Any time Rez and Lumines creator Tetsuya Mizuguchi comes out with a new game, I sit up and pay attention, because I know that it’s going to be quite an experience. And Humanity, Mizuguchi’s new project developed in collaboration with renowned designer Yugo Nakamura, is a wonderful addition to his body of work.

Humanity is an absolutely brilliant game that any fans of Mizuguchi or Nakamura’s work should jump right on. It’s the perfect antidote to the bombast of triple-A, a wonderfully contemplative experience if you allow it to be — and simply a well-designed puzzle game with some really interesting mechanics to engage with.

Humanity is available now for PS4 and PS5 (including PSVR and PSVR2 support respectively) and Windows PC via Steam. PlayStation Plus subscribers can nab it as part of an Extra subscription at the time of writing.

Had my second session with the game yesterday.
Loved every second.
It's great in VR, and I love every single human is animated and doing what they are supposed to be doing (walking, jumping, etc). Itself cool to just pick one at random and follow them.

I am loving it too. Not playing in VR, but still loving it. I still need to get PSVR2...

I played some in non-VR and it's still excellent :)

VR ups the immersion and feeling of 'god mode'. Just imagine having the humans jumping through the air right in front of your face. It's cool.

Played two user created levels today. Both were good. The second one, Strange Bridge I think it was called, was certainly hard and I must have spent about 45 minutes figuring it out before finally beating it.

“with lots of new next gen additions.“

Lots?! I already finished it twice and I thought it was pretty much perfect already.


“PSVR 2 players will also enjoy foveated rendering as well as “smooth 90fps with no reprojection.” Which should make the game glorious to look at. It’ll also include expanded language support.”

It was 120 fps before without reprojection. I don’t get this bit.

Didn’t read right. This is the original Red Matter (1) psvr version updated for psvr2. Whoops!

I was just saying how much I wanted it too.
