Homo Machina is a 2D exploration game inspired by Dr Fritz Kahn’s iconic illustrations of the inner workings of the human body. The player navigates inside the industrial palace of the manmachine, solving puzzles along the way. This metaphorical journey within the extraordinary world of the human body allows the player to make sense of our inner biology with the help of Kahn’s simple and evocative graphic system. In Homo Machina, tiny workers are hard at work round the clock to ensure the proper operation of every bodily function. Every part of the body has its own avatar - the eye becomes a folding camera, the lungs take the guise of copper piping, the stomach and the intestines figure a train of conveyor belts – that the player must understand and manipulate to go forth in his exploratory journey.
