Take one part Modern Art, one part dance, and one part mystery, and you might have something close to describing Bound.
Developer Plastic’s title is a 3D platformer set in a world springing from the mind of a woman revisiting childhood memories. The E3 trailer’s explanation of the game’s story is non-existent, but instead resonates with music and movement. Watch below and see ballet movements like you’ve never quite seen them before.
I can see why Bound has drawn comparisons to Journey. The developers have expressed how it is not so much a game and more of an experience, with the player deciding how they want to advance through the world. I may not have any idea on exactly what is going on, but the protagonist’s movement is certainly beautiful.
