HandyGames and Octato have announced that Airhead is in development for Nintendo Switch.

This Metroidvania-style adventure will see you play as Body, who witnesses the moment when an unknown machine tragically separates his organism friend Head from his air-pumping heart.

Leaping into action to rescue the abandoned Head, Body must use the air tanks scattered around the world to keep him inflated. That will lead him to discover the true connection behind the stolen heart and the technology that litters this dystopian world.

You will have the chance to descend into deep dark caverns and marvel at ancient structures, on a puzzle-solving adventure that the developer has looked to deliver a sense of responsibility and urgency to help your friend.

“We are incredibly happy to become a part of the HandyGames family,” explains Octato CEO and producer, Jacob Honore.

“Their devotion to games and the people who play them has been clear from the start and we’re confident that HandyGames are the right people to help us share Airhead with the world.”

HandyGames producer Reinhard Döpfer adds: “I’m very happy to support Octato on this awesome exploration platformer, that will deliver an incredible atmosphere with constant challenges and a very unique companionship between a body and his head.”

Airhead will release on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide in 2021.
