Helheim Hassle

Perfectly Paranormal have shared a developer commentary video for Helheim Hassle:

Norway-based developer Perfectly Paranormal today released a new developer commentary video featuring some whimsical advice on how to handle some of the dilemas players face in Helheim Hassle. Going to the gym is hard, especially if no one is pulling their weight. Sometimes all you need is a nudge from a dead viking who can detach their limbs and throw them. This is all in a day’s work in the wonderful world of Helheim Hassle!

And here’s some more details about the game:

Helheim Hassle is a 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!

Helheim Hassle (Switch – eShop) comes out later this year in Europe and North America. The Upcoming Games page has been updated!
