Every weekend, Windows Central streams an Xbox One or Steam game on Twitch for 1-2 hours and gives out free games to the cool people who join us during the stream. It's like a live podcast, only you also get to watch a game while chatting with our awesome readers and viewers!
Tonight we played Human: Fall Flat, a surreal puzzle and exploration game from Curve Digital. Players must help a clay human solve puzzles while individually controlling his hands. Read on for quick impressions, contest winners, and the full video replay of our livestream.
Human: Fall Flat
Human: Fall Flat is a physics puzzle and exploration game from No Brakes Games (makers of Pocket Sheep for Windows Phone) and Curve Digital (publisher of numerous excellent indie titles). It recently launched on Steam, but will also be coming to Xbox One and PlayStation 4 in the near future.
You play as a lowly human, rendered as a clay shape. His goal is simply to explore the world and solve its many mysteries, even though he will likely fall flat more than once. Our hero exists in a surreal world of floating buildings and platforms.
Navigating this bizarre landscape will require inventiveness and clever thinking. Players have independent control of the human's hands. You'll often need to activate multiple switches simultaneously, manipulate objects, and climb using your wits and the game's physics engine.
Human: Fall Flat supports mouse and keyboard or controller play. It also features local co-op for socially-minded humans. You can get it now on Steam for $14.99 or hold out until later this year for the console versions.
We streamed Human: Fall Flat for ~90 minutes. During that time, we gave out a total of 10 game codes:
- 10 for Steam

How to watch Twitch livestreams
What's the best way to experience Twitch? The Twitch website on your PC or Mac web browser. If you don't have or prefer not to use a computer, you can get the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, or Xbox 360 Twitch apps and watch from the comfort of your couch. Android and iOS both have official and unofficial Twitch apps to choose from as well.
On Windows Phone, you'll have to grab an unofficial app. There are several to choose from, each with different strengths and weaknesses. Read our roundup to learn more!
Want to know what's next for Windows Central's Twitch programming? We stream a different game every Saturday (and sometimes Sunday).

We hope you'll tune in as often as you can! Set a recurring alarm on your phone so you'll always know when it's time for the stream to start.
These humans fall flat, but they always get back up and try again. That's what makes them winners.
