Watch Us Play Headlander, A Retro Sci-Fi Metroidvania

Headlander is a wild new Metroidvania for PS4 and PC from the folks at Double Fine Productions and Adult Swim Games. It is a disco fever dream mix of shooting, puzzles, and exploration. It’s pretty damn swell to play as a floating head! Join me as I talk about director Lee Petty’s approach to design, shoot the heads off a lot of robots, and examine what does and does not work in Double Fine’s latest charmer!

Apparently “Metroidvania” is the accepted and legitimate genre description these days eh. No problem with that.. just think it’s funny. :)
