Your brain is on fire!

Mind worms are horrible creatures with dangerous psychic powers. They come in two varieties: weaker hatchlings and more powerful boil.

Mind worms attack from afar with psi blasts, causing 1 damage to the head and prolonged confusion. This may not seem too bad, but given how your head tends to have very little HP and that mind worms only need to sense you through their ESP to kill you even through walls, they are a priority target. However, as tin helmets block ESP, wearing one will make all mind worms a non-threat.

If mind worm boil gets next to an enemy, it will attempt to burrow into their skull and lay eggs. Hatchlings will later spew forth from the victim's head.

You have a killer headache.
