PRODUCT DESCRIPTION:
A unique 3rd person-action game created exclusively for the PSP™ (PlayStation®Portable) system, Dead Head Fred draws players into an original 1940’s inspired alternative universe where the bizarre blends with a slice of old time Americana producing a morally bankrupt town ruled by violent organized crime and populated with mutants spawned from toxic waste.  As private detective Fred Neuman, savagely murdered and then resurrected in a bizarre scientific experiment without his memory or his head, players embark on a quest for vengeance as they solve their own murder by using the severed heads of enemies to battle their way through environments designed to showcase each head’s unique abilities.  Offering unprecedented graphics with vast, interactive environments, Dead Head Fred immerses players in the action with the most revolutionary camera to date on a handheld device as players collect, upgrade and switch the heads of enemies on the fly to strategically fight malformed mutants, ghoulish gangsters, and maniacal mob bosses in a unique and compelling story of revenge and redemption.
