    Just dance

    Republished on Wednesday 1st November 2017: We're bringing this review back from the archives following the announcement of November's PlayStation Plus lineup. The original text follows. As demoscene veterans, it's no surprise to see Polish developer Plastic's latest obsess over visual effects. Bound is a ballerina-based...

  • Weirdness What If God of War's Kratos Was a Ballerina?

    Bound in chains

    There's something quite graceful about the manner in which God of War protagonist Kratos acrobatically swings the Blades of Chaos, but demoscene developer Plastic has a different kind of interpretive dance in mind for the delirious deity. As part of what is pretty obviously an April Fools' gag, it's swapped out the character model...

  • News Spring to Life with Arty Platformer Bound's Free PS4 Demo

    In case you skipped it

    Bound released on the PlayStation 4 last year, and was praised for its abstract visuals and its sublime animation. Our own Sammy Barker wasn't entirely keen on its gameplay, as noted in our review, but it's a unique title that's at least worth a look. Fortunately, if you're interested in the especially arty release, developer...

  • Video Bound Has Some of the Best Animations on PS4 Yet

    Dancin', dancin'

    Uncharted 4: A Thief's End is a majestically animated game, but Polish demoscene dev Plastic's latest may just rival it. Bound's gameplay is based upon performance capture of real dancers, and the studio's done an incredible job of marrying these moves to gameplay – it's way more responsive than you could possibly imagine. We...

  • E3 2016 Ballet Platformer Bound Secures Release Date

    And it’ll be here soon

    E3 is usually a pretty huge event when it comes to showing off new games. But it's also a big day for telling people when they'll be able to get their hands on games, too. For instance, this year's E3 saw an absolute monster load of titles get release dates. Not everything was AAA, though. While Sony was busy knocking its...

  • PSX 2015 Bound on PS4 Has Some Beautiful Animations

    Bound to be good?

    Remember the game with ballerinas that divided opinion earlier in the week? Well, we're going to post about it again, because it looks absolutely stunning. For those out of the loop, Bound is being produced by Polish demoscene developer Plastic in collaboration with Sony Santa Monica, and it's billed as a story-driven platformer in...

  • News Bound Is a Bonkers Balletic Platformer for PS4 by Plastic and Sony Santa Monica

    Dancing queen

    The best part of being a PlayStation fan is that Sony funds some truly wacky stuff, and Bound definitely falls under that category. The game – which is being produced for the PlayStation 4 by Datura developer Plastic in collaboration with Sony Santa Monica – was teased around the web recently, and resembles a 3D platformer in which...
