Homo Machina is a puzzle game inspired by the work of avant-garde scientist Fritz Kahn. Set off on a crazy journey to solve the surreal puzzles of Homo Machina and learn about the internal working of the human body, represented as a gigantic 1920s factory.

In this narrative puzzle, players are plunged into an ingenious system of nerves, vessels and valves. The aim is to help the body function correctly in about thirty steps or so throughout the entire day. Each scene breaks down daily acts, such as opening your eyes, chewing a toast or listening to music, through seamless navigation and intuitive and inventive gameplay.

Fritz Kahn, a pioneer of infographics and popular science, came up with easy to understand analogies to enable people to improve their understanding of the human body. By combining old school design with a contemporary influence, Homo Machina delights with its clever dialogue between the absent-minded director at the helm of the body-machine and Josiane, his diligent secretary, encouraging players to put to task the armada of workers to get the incredible factory up and running.

After Californium, Homo Machina is the new video game created by Darjeeling production. It was edited and co-produced by ARTE, European culture digital and TV channel, and Feierabend.

I love the idea, but it leave me wanting much more.


I was thinking this is going to be a sim game. But it is more of a guided story. I did enjoy it, but it is only one story, where there can be so much more. Maybe we play as the one woman and she goes though the stages of Pregnancy, much longer story.

Art and music was great there just isn’t enough. Are they going to add content? For $3 there needs to be more content... I want more...

Charming, Beautiful and Utterly Unique


This game is gorgeous and charming from the opening scene. This will make you think differently about the most simple human functions. I am early in the game but I absolutely love this.

Clever but short

This is a nice looking game with some fun, but simple, puzzles.

The major downfall is the length. You can easily get through the entire game in about 45 minutes, and there’s not much in the way of replayability.
