Headspun: Dazed Edition
A downloadable game for Windows and macOS
INCLUDES A STEAM KEY AT RELEASE!
Cortex is in ruins.
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.
Headspun is an FMV/Adventure hybrid which puts you 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, emotional 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 is a game about recovery, discovery, and the ongoing battle between logic and emotion.
- 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
THE DAZED EDITION
IMPORTANT PLEASE READ : Headspun: Dazed Edition is an early access version of the game. If you're looking for a final, slick game experience and want to experience the story in its finished form - please wait for the full release. If you're happy getting stuck into something unfinished and would like to involve yourself in the remainder of development - the Dazed Edition might be for you.
Anybody that purchases the DRM-free Dazed Edition will also be entitled to a Deluxe Edition Steam key when the full release rolls around later next month. This is a chance to check out the game in a slightly earlier state, as we put those final few bits and bobs into the game, fix any bugs, and polish all the way until release.
Superstring is a one-man band, and Headspun is releasing early in the form of the Dazed Edition to catch bugs and optimise in a way simply not possible with one PC and one pair of eyes.
Fair warning: there are bugs, there is content that still needs to be populated, and it *may* break on you. Sorry! We'll be patching and uploading new builds as often as we're able, however - so bear with us and we'll get that problem of yours fixed.
We're all ears for bugs and feedback, of course: firstname.lastname@example.org
Anybody who sends through a bug or meaningful piece of feedback will be added to the credit-list for the final game, too, alongside our eternal gratitude.
WILL HEADSPUN ALSO BE RELEASED ON STEAM?
It will indeed. Purchasing the Dazed Edition here on Itch will also secure you a Steam key for the full release of the game.
WILL THE PRICE REMAIN THE SAME FOR THE FINAL RELEASE?
No - the Dazed Edition is cheaper, as it's unfinished; it could be seen as an Early Bird price for the full release.
I'M DIGGING THE SYNTHWAVE MUSIC - TELL ME MORE!?
Headspun's OST has been composed by UK-based electronic outfit Soho Loop, with composer Stephen Willey also looking after the sound design in the game.
