Dedicated to abusing the boundaries of genre
Superstring is a London (UK) based game studio looking to bring narrative to unlikely places. By fusing unexpected mechanics, we hope to create new genre-hybrids which put experimentation above all else.
Our debut release, Headspun - an FMV/Adventure set in the Cortex, the world of the human brain - is due for release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PC and Mac on August 28th 2019.

WELCOME TO CORTEX
Become the director of Cortex; the world of the brain. Help Ted and Teddy rebuild and renovate their home, as Theo begins a journey of recovery and discovery after a life threatening accident.
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. Make decisions and guide Theo's recovery 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.
