Absurd comedy puzzle adventure Helheim Hassle is out now for Linux PC

By - | Views: 7,009

Available now for Linux PC is Helheim Hassle, a comedy narrative adventure game with puzzle platforming elements that's a bit of a Viking battle-culture parody.

Developer Perfectly Paranormal mentioned that Helheim Hassle is actually set in the same slightly bizarre universe as their 2016 game Manual Samuel. You play as Bjørn, a Viking, who also happens to be a pacifist who is trying to avoid going to Valhalla and ends up dying and going there anyway. You end up getting resurrected by the mysterious Pesto and then proceed through ridiculous puzzle solving and platforming with the ability to detach and combine limbs at will.

Feature Highlight:

  • 14 levels
  • 90+ puzzles
  • 80+ interactable characters
  • 3,700 lines of spoken dialogue performed by 24 professional actors

There's also a demo available so you can see if their attempt at comedy will tickle you, it certainly did to me. Nice crisp and colourful style mixed with the absurd game mechanics make for a pretty fun ride. Looks like Perfectly Paranormal are onto an absolute winner here.

Might just be the thing to cheer me up when I feel like suffering from social distance
