HEADSPUN IS A RPG/FMV HYBRID SET IN THE WORLD OF THE HUMAN BRAIN
Headspun is a 2D narrative adventure set in Cortex; the world of Theo Kavinsky's broken brain. Taking advantage of live-action FMV sequences, the staff of Cortex watch Theo's life unfold from the eyeScreen behind his eyes, making decisions on his behalf and running the day-to-day cognitive operations which define Theo as a person.
After Theo is involved in a life-threatening car accident, Cortex quite literally falls apart, and Theo's life takes a dark turn. With Cortex in ruins - the parietal lobe damaged - what made Theo 'Theo' is no longer obvious.
Playing as Ted, the rational, human personification of Theo's character, players will begin a journey to rebuild Cortex and put Theo's life back together. What Ted thinks is best for Theo, however, isn't necessarily a view shared by Teddy - the primal, emotional representation of Theo's psyche. Headspun is game that follows the relationship between Ted and Teddy; an ongoing war between logic and emotion.
Headspun is due for release on PC in 2019.

A NEW KIND OF FMV GAME
While the world of Cortex is brought to life via a mixture of traditional 2D scenes and dialogue interactions, the real world - the world outside of the brain - is viewed through a live-action FMV lens.
REBUILD & RENOVATE
After the accident, Cortex is in a sorry state. Making decisions and guiding Theo's recovery will yield Grey Matter, which can be used to rebuild, repair and redecorate Cortex, hiring new staff to help along the way. Your choices in the real world will affect the restoration of Cortex, and vice versa.
