If you're looking for something a little different to play on your Switch, Wales Interactive's next project might just be the perfect thing. We've got a trailer just above these little words here for you to watch, but bear in mind there's some mild profanity to endure.
As part of a collaboration with developer Superstring, the publisher will be bringing Headspun to Nintendo Switch on 30th August. It places live-action footage inside its gameplay, making for an interesting and unusual hybrid of styles.
Here's a bit more about the game from the press blurb:
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.
The game was filmed on location in January 2018, telling a story of "recovery, discovery, and the ongoing battle between logic and emotion". Here are some of the features you can expect to enjoy:
- Rich FMV story-telling
- Branching dialogue - sway the outcome of your interactions
- Rebuild Cortex - earn Neuros to hire staff and commission renovations
- Retrieve Lost Memories and work out what happened the night of Theo's accident
- Original Synthwave Score from Soho Loop
