Bound for PS4 is an experimental, three-dimensional platformer offering an abstract, alluring game world. The game is the third project of the Polish Plastic studio developed exclusively for the Sony's console. The team was aided by programmers and artists from Sony Santa Monica. Bound follows the path established by Linger of Shadows and Datura - both the games were created for PlayStation 3. As a result, the players are dealing with an experimental product again, which is hard to classify, because it is not characterized by all the features describing the so-called traditional games.

Mechanics

Bound for PS4 is an original 3D platformer placing a great emphasis on puzzles, the largest of which are solved mutually with other players. The game world was created on the basis of technologies developed by the creators; partially, it is generated procedurally. The developers were inspired by classic works of abstract art from the beginning of the twentieth century. As a result, the players received minimalistic visuals, making use of colors contrasting with one another, as well as simple geometric blocks.

Technical aspects

Motion-capture technology is at source of the character animations here. Maria Udod - an award-winning Russian dancer working in Netherlands on a daily basis took part in the motion-capture sessions. Optimization of the game was very important for the creators, thus Bound runs in full HD resolution at 60 frames per second.
