Wales Interactive has announced that they are partnering up with Superstring to release a new hybrid game that mixes FMV and Adventure together and it’s called Headspun.
Headspun is set to release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PC, and Mac sometime this Summer. You can check out the trailer above and read more about the game below.
After waking from a five week coma, Theo Kavinsky finds his life in disrepair, and with no memory of the accident, it’s up to Ted and Teddy – the conscious and subconscious voices in his head – to work out what happened, and put his life back on track.
Combining live-action storytelling with elements of Adventure, Headspun puts players in the shoes of Ted: the Director of Cortex – the rational, intelligent voice in Theo’s head. What Ted thinks is best for Theo isn’t necessarily a view shared by Teddy, however, the primal, subconscious voice. In the process of repairing Cortex, re-hiring a team and finding out what happened the night of the accident, Ted and Teddy must cast aside their differences and learn to work together.
Headspun was filmed on location in January 2018, with a small cast and crew shooting at Rodwell House; a working hospice in Surrey, UK. The live action scenes were filmed by Pinyata Film, who have helped direct the FMV side of the project.
Headspun is a game about recovery, discovery, and the ongoing battle between logic and emotion.
