World Of Goo and Little Inferno puzzle game developer Tomorrow Corporation announced its next work 7 Billion Humans will be “initiating soon” for Nintendo Switch and desktops.

Billed by Tomorrow Corporation as a “follow-up” to the Oct. 2015 release of programming puzzle game Human Resource Machine, 7 Billion Humans is taking its predecessor to the next level. Where Human Resource Machine had only one worker performing commands, its sequel will have tons of workers doing things all at the same time.

There will be over 60 programming puzzles that will have players taking on the role of the mighty computer overlord to figure out how human workers can be used to accomplish needed tasks.

In today’s gaming market, the developer has conspicuously left out any announcement for a Android or iOS release. For Tomorrow Corporation this seems to be a pattern, as most of their games have arrived on desktops before mobile. This could be a business strategy to try to scoop up the higher priced sales from the console and desktop platforms, since its mobile titles sell typically at half the price. Puzzlers can pretty well bet on this game coming to Android and iOS sometime in the future.

7 Billion Humans will be available on Steam for Windows, macOS, and Linux. Pricing for both Nintendo Switch and desktops hasn’t been announced.
