Oh My Godheads release

Ready for a crazy good couch co-op time? The Square Enix Collective game Oh My Godheads releases today on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC today, and it’s a bit of an odd game. Your objective? Capturing heads!

Here is the trailer that marks the Oh My Godheads release:

You’re probably wondering what on Earth is going on in this game. Developer Titutitech provides more background:

Oh My Godheads is the world’s first capture-the- head action game for 1-4 players. Capture-the-
head is like capture-the- flag, but the flag is an ancient head that’s alive, angry, and after you! Fight
with friends to capture these furious, living heads and bring them back to your team’s plinth…if you
can. Born from a love of old school multiplayer games like Micro Machines, Worms, and Street
Fighter, Titutitech wanted to recreate the fun, fast-paced multiplayer experience of those games
while adding full 3D environments for more tactics, more depth, and more replayability. Oh, did we
mention it’s got exploding pies?

Oh My Godheads is the craziest game any of us have ever worked on, but the mania is not without reason,” said Federico Sauret, co-CEO of Titutitech. “We set out to recapture the sense of fun so many couch-based multiplayer games pulled off in the 1990s, and that revolves around making things as comical as we possibly can.

“A big part of that is giving the Godheads themselves their own unique personalities and abilities; when the very thing you’re trying to capture fights back at the same time as all your rivals, it’s little wonder play gets a little heated.”

If you’re more interested in gameplay, this quick list has you covered:

  • Hilarious couch multiplayer for 1-4 players
  • Battle computer-controlled characters in single player mode
  • ‘Capture-the-head’ gameplay supercharges capture-the-flag with uniquely powered godheads
  • Multiple magical godheads – explosions, control-switching and more
  • Bright, colourful 3D environments in world-spanning locales
  • Ridiculous cast of characters to play
  • Swords, hats, monocles and airborne pastries

Oh My Godheads releases today on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC for $14.99.
