Too Human: A Play Acting Game Too Human is a play acting game or a video game started by Canadian maker Silicon Knights and issued by Microsoft Studios for the Xbox 360 in August 2008.

The game suffered for 10 years critically for its growth than planned to release on the Sony PlayStation in 1999. Growth later went into the Nintendo GameCube in 2000, before eventually vending the rights to Microsoft in 2005 and becoming an Xbox 360 exclusive.

It is designed by Denis Dyack and composed by Steve Henifin. It started playing in two modes: single-player and multiplayer. It was released on August 19, 2008.

The style and rating of the game were appreciated but many were disappointed by its graphics and level designing and filth ending.

Then the makers tried to make it better and eventually this resulted in winning $4.45 million but the makers being forced to demolish all its products that used unreal engine 3, so Too human also stopped because the makers were suffering from bankruptcy on May 16, 2004. The role-playing elements of the game come in the form of advanced character customization.

Development of Too Human

When this game started the development of this game was quite critical and its original release date got postponed for the next two years but when it collaborated with Microsoft in May 2005, it started growing well.

People started loving it’s a technique and its class as well. It started getting good reviews but because of the use of unreal engine 3 by the makers it got demolished and its budget started going down.

And the makers tried to make a movie as well and they decided to make it in 3 parts; Excavation, Examination, and Exhibition, and the demo got released on Xbox Live on July 14, 2008.

On 31 July 2008 Microsoft declared that Too human demo exceeded 900,000 downloads. It was the most downloaded demo in its first week.

It’s been one of the most played titles on Xbox Live overall. Then because of breach of contract between the two led to the demolition of the game.


People actually loved the story of the game However the mechanics left very much to be desired. You had to go through the tutorial just to take a piss, it was extremely frustrating.

It had the potential to be a good game however it just failed to measure up. It got 7.8 ratings and ⅗ trusted views. Sadly it lacked the expectation of a reasonable story and some inventive mechanics was reasonable.

The whole affair is as generic a turd as one can possibly flush down the open maw’s of the bored public. . To Human was not even era-appropriate at the moment of its release as there were too many lags and poor performance which proves that the optimization of the game was not the best.

It brings me to conclude that in our time of remakes and remasters this game is apparently the one that does not need it because it would be easily eclipsed by many other titles.
