SCE Santa Monica had been teasing something rather odd for the past few days and ahead of the PlayStation Experience, it’s been revealed to be Bound. This PS4 title is developed in collaboration with developer Plastic and game director Michal Staniszewski explained some aspects of the game on the PS Blog while a trailer was shared.
Bound is essentially a 3D platformer but features a mature narrative. You play as a ballerina, who’s motion capture has been performed by dancer Maria Udod, and as Staniszewski explained, “On the other side of the spectrum, Bound is also being prepared for hardcore gamers looking for the challenge of one big puzzle that can be only solved by a community of players working together.
“We are going to deliver a ‘notgame’ to you, which is also a game. It’s up to you to decide how you would like to play.”
Bound will be in 60 FPS and 1080p resolution with the team having “spent more than a year on optimizations, just to deliver you a game that will squeeze the most of your PS4.” We’ll probably learn more at PlayStation Experience this weekend so stay tuned.
