Superstring is a new U.K. based micro studio that is developing games with the intent of “weaving stories you’ll remember long after putting the controller down.” To this end, they are working on Headspun – a FMV/graphic hybrid adventure that takes place in Cortex, the world of the human brain.

Theo Kavinsky wakes up from a five week coma and discovers that his mind is not what it used to be. He taps into Ted and Teddy (the subconscious voices in his head) for help. They work together towards the goal of restoring Theo’s memory and putting his life back in order.

The FMV side of the project includes live action scenes filmed earlier this year by Pinyata Film. Footage from a hospice in Surrey, U.K. will be combined with animated graphics to create a unique story-driven adventure. The game experience will be complemented by an original “synthwave” sound track by Soho Loop, under the leadership of Stephen Willey.

Headspun can be wish-listed on Steam and is due out later this year. For more information, visit the Superstring website.

Cindy’s love affair with gaming began when she opened a mailbox in front of a white house and took the first step in a long series of adventures. ‘Back in the day,’ Cindy was a regular contributor to JA and an active member of the online gaming community. She has attended several E3s and has had the pleasure of spending time in person with both Ray and Randy. Her all- time favorite adventures include the Tex Murphy series, the Gabriel Knight series, and The Longest Journey. She also enjoys RPGs and her list of ‘best ever’ includes Fallout, Asheron’s Call, and Planescape Torment. Â Frustrated with the cost of rising PC system requirements, Cindy decided to switch to console and tablet gaming. Although you can teach some old dogs new tricks, she discovered that console controller dexterity is a skill set that she is lacking. Her results with tablet gaming were not much better. With the exception of a few gems such as The Room and Forever Lost, there is a limit to how much one can play Candy Crush and Hidden Object Adventures. Having proved that pure escapism is worth the investment, she has a new gaming laptop and is back to her search for the perfect adventure. Â After spending most of her life in Los Angeles and Atlanta, Cindy escaped the stress of urban life and moved to rural Arkansas. To show that she has become a true Arkansan, she has taken up deer hunting, wears pink camo, and put a chicken coop in her backyard. On a stressful day, she can be heard yelling ‘Woo Pig Sooie’ when all else fails.
