"Perhaps the most intriguing aspect of Bryce’s limblessness is how it factors into exploration and puzzle solving. For instance, during one section that was demoed for us, there was a collectible located on a fractured ledge on the second floor of a building, and the only path to it was a sliver of concrete against the wall. Since the path was far too narrow for Bryce to maneuver, he pulled off his head, tossed it on the ground, and rolled his way across to the item. This trick can also be used to access areas that a full body could not reach, since Bryce can use regeneration potions to sprout a whole body out of his head with a simple click of a button. It’s a neat trick, and I actually found it be a much more intriguing use of the dismemberment mechanic than that seen in the combat."
