Play OverviewPlay Overview

Wax Heads is a communication and deduction game where you run a struggling record store. To play you talk to quirky customers to discern their tastes and sell them records. It stands out for its slice-of-life puzzling where you explore a handcrafted record collection, fall in love with bands and generally slack off.

You run Repeater Records where you recommend the very best records to your customers. Each one is unique, although they are all a little eccentric and indecisive. Think Empire Records meets High Fidelity. Listen to their stories, and observe what they look like so you can find the one perfect record.

As you progress you learn about the music and bands that you sell. Did Scandinavian metal band Jarhead really murder their singer and put his head in a jar? Is it true Kerri Krow only sings when brushing her teeth? Has anyone actually ever seen Mimi? It's all crucial information if you are going to nail those suggestions.

The result is a comic-book-looking game where your observation and attention to detail are put to the test. It's punchy, humorous and affectionate. But more than that, it's an uplifting story about community, mystery and underdog spirit.
