Broken Age and Massive Chalice developer Double Fine has announced Headlander, a retro-futuristic 2D Metroidvania.


Rather than pick up items or extra abilities, it looks like you will be picking up other bodies.

You play as your character's head, which can fly around and attach on to other humans and animals - each of which has their own abilities.

The first Headlander images and trailer show off an art style that looks like a mix of Logan's Run and The Jetsons.

There's no word on a release date or platforms yet, other than a vague 2016 launch window. Take a peek below:
