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. 

FEATURES

  • 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: support@superstring.studio

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.
