Norway-based developer Perfectly Paranormal is pleased to announce that their new body desecration puzzle-platformer Helheim Hassle is out today on Nintendo Switch, Xbox One and PC (Steam); with the PlayStation 4 version coming a little later this year.
Helheim Hassle is a comedic yet macabre narrative adventure game, from the same universe as previous hit Manual Samuel, that is as much about friendship as it is about body parts. You play as Bjørn, a pacifist Viking who hates the idea of dying and going to Valhalla (who then ends up dying and getting taken to Valhalla) as he seeks to negotiate his way out while helping the mysterious Pesto on a quest to retrieve a certain magical item… In return, Pesto will try to grant Bjørn a permanent residence in Helheim – what a hassle!
Players will be tasked with completing up to 70 quests over 14 levels, requiring the use of all manner of different body part combos to complete the game’s unique puzzle-platforming challenges. On this adventure, players will come into contact with 80 different characters from all walks of life (and death) ranging from frustrated god souls, bear ghosts, dragons, elves, dwarves and blue-collar goblins; all voiced by 24 professional voice actors delivering 3,700 lines of spoken dialogue!
“Woohoo! Helheim Hassle is out, finally! This has been the weirdest year we’ve ever had and with the next game in the Tuesday Trilogy, things are about to get a whole lot weirder,“ said Ozan Drosdal, Creative Lead at Perfectly Paranormal. ”Helheim Hassle takes the wackiness of Manual Samuel and adds a whole load more gameplay, puzzles and story – we think ya’ll are gonna love it.”
