If you're looking for a fun puzzler that doesn't pressure you with any kind of time limit, it's hard to go wrong with 7 Billion Humans. The game's variety of tools and obstacles keep it interesting all the way through... Just don't expect anything particularly special from its story.
We thoroughly enjoyed our illustrious career in data manipulation – if you've got the head for it (or if you've ever enjoyed an episode of Silicon Valley), 7 Billion Humans is as perfect an introduction to programming as you could hope for. It gives the layman an appreciation of clean, efficient code, and the writing will keep more savvy players entertained for the duration. It offers more puzzling variety than its predecessor, but if your brain simply isn't wired that way, you won't like it any better. If that's the case, we'd recommend sitting this one out and crossing your fingers that Tomorrow Corporation have something less esoteric in the pipeline.
7 Billion Humans may feature a concept that doesn't immediately stand out to everyone but the rewards of spending even a few minutes around it will prove very rewarding as the entire experience is extremely addictive, fun and riddled with absurd humor. While a multiplayer mode and a more user-friendly gameplay with the Pro-Controller and the Joy-Cons would be appreciated, 7 Billion Humans is nothing short of an original and recommended game that may surprise quite a few players.

7 Billion Humans is aimed not only at those who have an aptitude for computer science and programming, but for any type of gamer who is curious about learning how to use functions to solve problems with clever solutions. The more you play, the better you'll get at this basic coding environment, spotting section in your code that can be optimized, lowering the overall number of steps or using other actions to complete the same goal. In the end, the game is certainly fun and, while not being as unique since the team did previously release Human Resource Machine, it does expand on the formula and scope. The funny writing and charming cartoony art style will win you over and keep you chuckling until the end. It's a polished release that I highly recommend.
