Adult Swim Games: Headlander, Death’s Gambit, More at PS Experience

Hello. We’re Adult Swim Games, reporting from our booth on the PlayStation Experience show floor. Allow us to introduce you to several of your future favorites on PS4.

Rays the Dead

Start with Ray’s the Dead, an inspired new take on the zombie genre by Ragtag Studio. Rise from your grave and assemble your own shambling horde of brain-craving zombies as Ray, a freshly-risen corpse with a lot of questions.

Use your eager crowd of rotting friends to solve puzzles, attack enemies and uncover the mystery behind Ray’s death (and subsequent undeath) while tapping your feet to a stellar, 80’s-inspired soundtrack.

Death's Gambit

It doesn’t stop there — we’re also showing Death’s Gambit by White Rabbit, an adventure that has you exploring an alien, medieval world as an agent of Death (with a capital D). Take down giant monsters and horrific beasts to become more powerful, upgrade your weapons and abilities, and earn your keep. If you enjoy gothic fantasy with brutal, kick-your-ass difficulty, you’ll rather enjoy this one.


End your booth tour with Headlander, a retro sci-fi head trip by Double Fine Productions. You are the last known human in the universe; all that remains of you is a disembodied head.

Seeking clues to your fractured past, you must travel through a hostile world of machines using a special helmet that allows you to dock into and take control of any robotic host body, from armed guards and sentries to go-go dancers and tiny dogs. As you launch from one body to the next, you’ll start to discover that things are not quite what they appear to be and the fate of humanity has yet to be decided…


While we’re mentioning future PS4 favorites, go ahead and engage your hype machines for Rain World by Videocult. Take control of an adorable slugcat, both predator and prey, and brave the industrial wastes to find your family. Grab a spear and hunt enough food to survive each day’s harsh, punishing storm, but be wary — other, bigger creatures have the same plan… and slugcats look delicious. Nimble controls, unique physics, and gorgeous environments make this a title to look for in 2016.

We have even more incredible titles arriving on PS4 in the coming months, as well: Duck Game, Small Radios Big Televisions and more will all be available in 2016.

If you’re at PlayStation Experience this weekend, stop by our booth to meet our devs, say hello, and get your hands on the good stuff. See you there, PlayStation Nation.

  • Did you pay for Rain World and Ray’s The Dead to get their Vita versions cancelled???

  • Rain World still coming to Vita?

  • When I saw Adult swim on stage, I thought they would show a Rick and Morty game. Oh well, maybe one day. I could see Rick and Morty as an episodic game like the Telltale games or Life is strange.

  • These games look really fun, but it’s really disappointing there was no mention of the Vita, which some would be perfect for.

  • I noticed a change in my life for the worse, when they changed Adult Swim programming around 2005.

    I loved Toonami, and shows that others might have found a little “child-like” such as Space Ghost, The Big-0, Trigun, Full Metal Alchemist, Inuyasha, Wolf’s Reign, Samurai Champloo, and of course my favorite at the time……. Cowboy Bebop.

    Not becuase I felt excited to watch it, but, because it had morale and character.
    Not some actor/actress pretending for everyone else, to look good, because people are watching.
    It included a message that made you look within yourself, trying to find it, and possibly when I began to finally start listening.

    Such as Trigun’s – Episode 14 Little Arcadia

    If you only face forward, there is something you will miss seeing. It is a virtue to devote one’s self to something, firmly believing in one’s own ideals. But that does not mean it’s all right to belittle the ideals or feelings of others. If you lead such a busy life, and you don’t realize how your parents feel, it’s only for self satisfaction. It’s all right to stop every now and again. If you want a moments rest, if you want to feel what other people feel.

  • What I don’t understand, is the complete change in programming with shows almost completely opposite.

    Don’t get me wrong, I thought Aqua Teen Hunger Force was pretty funny, even though it was pretty vulgar at times.

    But, I would have rather you added shows (and am glad you finally did) like Sword Art Online ( favorite love story, so far ), and Naruto, amoung others, and left the rest out.
    Especially when it was scheduled, and found myself trying to fill the hole with mindless shows such as Robot Chicken.

    -Yes I know it is all fiction, and are drawings with a voice actor reading lines. But sometimes, just hearing words of meaning can help you believe in something. And that, can sometimes carry over to ourself.

  • Anyway……

    Thank you for adding some meaning to my life, than just the need to survive.

    And if not you, pass it along ???

  • Between Duck Game (!!!) and Rain World, this might have been one of my favorite segments of the PSX keynote. Certainly the best ratio of great games per second :-D

  • Ray’s the Dead looks even more amazing in motion, their commitment to the art style really paid off. Glad I backed it on Kickstarter! That being said, I thought it was coming to Vita as well? Is that not the case any more?

    I didn’t see Rain World on the show floor, but the ambience looks amazing — especially the tease for a few frames of the advanced lighting that looks really great juxtaposed to the pixel art.

    I want to be excited for Headlander, but didn’t get to play it, and am in a “wait and see” mode with Double Fine’s next games after how disappointing Day of the Tentacle Remastered is looking. No one there could answer any questions I had about Headlander or DOTT:Remastered :/

  • hey there Adult Swim!

    That is a very awesome line up of games!

    is there a way to get in contact with you for press purposes?
