Perfectly Paranormal has revealed that Helheim Hassle is in development for Nintendo Switch.

This body-puzzle platformer is set in the same universe as Manual Samuel, and promises to deliver a macabre adventure “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, but then ends up dying and getting taken to Valhalla.

Resurrected to help the mysterious Pesto with a task, Bjørn recognises his chance to negotiate his way out. Retrieve a certain magical item and Pesto will reward Bjørn with permanent residence in Helheim.

With the ability to detach and combine his limbs at will, Bjørn must use his undying corpse to solve challenging puzzles and navigate tricky levels in order to succeed.

“Helheim Hassle is a wacky, fun adventure – moving on from the body-puzzle mechanics of Manual Samuel,” explains Perfectly Paranormal project leader Ozan.

“With engaging levels and lively characters, I have no doubt players will have a blast playing through this game. It’s been a pleasure to bring to life such an exuberant shared universe.”

Helheim Hassle will release on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide in 2020.
