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.

For more, shimmy on over to our our blog to check out the latest happenings, or keep on scrolling, baby.

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.
