Helheim Hassle narrative adventure rocks the GDWC across Linux, Mac and Windows PC. Thanks to the efforts of developer Perfectly Paranormal. Which is available on both Humble Store and Steam with a discount. Not to mention 98% Very Positive reviews. And rightly so.
Helheim Hassle by Perfectly Paranormal, a game studio from Norway. Has now won the weekly voting on Game Development World Championship Fan Favourite category for the Story Games Week. It is not a surprise if you play game.
What is Helheim Hassle?
“Helheim Hassle is a story adventure game. Which also happens to come with puzzle platforming elements. Play as Bjørn, a pacifist Viking that can detach and combine limbs at will. Then solve challenging puzzles and get out of uncomfortable situations. These involve desperate Norse Gods, Goblins, Dragons, and angry skeletons.” Perfectly Paranormal describes Helheim Hassle.
Perfectly Paranormal moves on to the next round of voting. Doing so in the Fan Favourite category of the GDWC – Game Development World Championship. Due to meet other Weekly Vote winners in a battle for the crown. Coming at the end of the GDWC 2020 season.
2nd place was taken by Saint Kotar by Red Martyr Entertainment from Croatia. Which is also available on Linux, Mac and Windows PC. But coming available in August 2021: “Saint Kotar is a psychological horror adventure. Set in an ancient rural town of Croatia. Take on the role of two godly men. While trying to unravel the terrifying truth behind the town’s occult happenings. And the disappearance of their relatives. ”
Oddly enough the 3rd place win is a bit different than Helheim Hassle. Burn Me Twice by Null Reference Studio is from Spain. Sadly no Linux support here, but this Unity 3D game is playable via Protron. Which is also “free to play”, should you want to take up the adventure on Steam: “Burn Me Twice is a narrative adventure that combines investigation segments. In which you can explore the enigmatic town of Düstenburg. With trials that will test your knowledge about the case.”
