We are now on Steam!!
We Have Done It!

Hello fellow spaceBOUNDERS and Greenlight supporters! We have done it! We have officially launched on Steam Early Access!

Go take a look at the store page now!

During Early Access we want to hear from you, help us make spaceBOUND the best it can be by sharing your experiences, testing out multiplayer (experimental), and reporting bugs.

Thank you so much for your support, and for your continuing support.

Weekly Update #3 : We did it!
Thank You!!

Hello everybody!

Before we get to the normal update stuff, we'd like to say that WE DID IT!! Steam Greenlight ended and we have been approved as one of the last games to ever be greenlit! THANK YOU to everyone that voted for us! We hope to be coming to steam at the end of summer, so keep an eye out and let your friends know!




REMEMBER that as of this writing, there are only five days left on Kickstarter to support spaceBOUND. There are cool rewards such as a poster and T-shirt! If you want to name a level or hang out at Disney, we even have a tier for that!




Now to the update of what we've been doing the past week ...

Play-Testing Extravaganza!

Last week we had our largest play-test event yet, with more than 20 play-testers. The information we get from play-testers is *incredibly* important for spaceBOUND. Balancing the game and making sure it is fun while still being very challenging is a difficult task. So, thank you to all of our play-testers! Already, we have made positive changes to the early levels of spaceBOUND.

We captured a little gif for you guys to see here!



Here's a pic!



A New Hostile!

As we get closer to the end of development we are creating less and less new things. Instead, now we are putting in more and more art, sound, and creating the final bunch of levels. But this week was an exception! The latest hostile is ... *drumroll* ... the turret! Check out the gif below! (The level is a work in progress, so everything in the background looks weird)



As you can see, the turret will hone in on you and then blast you away. HINT: You can distract the turret with another object ... such as an asteroid ... or your space-bounding buddy. Though I'd recommend an asteroid.


Thank you everybody for following us on Steam Greenlight! And thank you for checking out the latest weekly update. We are not sure if the greenlight pages will be taken down, but if they aren't we will keep updating every week!

Description
Release date: Summer 2017

spaceBOUND is a cooperative zero-gravity puzzle-platformer in which two astronauts, bound together by a tether, must navigate dangerous obstacles and complete puzzles while exploring the asteroid upon which they crash landed.


  • A brutally challenging zero-gravity puzzle platformer that can be played solo or cooperatively (Same screen couch coop, or Online!).
  • A completely physics based game, from the asteroids to the tether.
  • Discover the mysteries of the abandoned mining facility, and find hidden collectibles.
  • Solve puzzles cooperatively, teamwork is the key!
  • Avoid spinning lasers, dodge saws, and move quickly to avoid a painful death
  • Face 5 different boss levels that put everything you have learned to the test.


A team of two astronauts have crash landed on a giant asteroid, the home of an abandoned mining facility. Plunging below the surface, the astronauts begin exploring the mining facility, avoiding hazardous machinery along the way and slowly uncovering the truth about where they are...


  • Windows / Mac / Linux support
  • Single-player
  • Local co-op
  • Direct connect online co-op

Se ve simple, pero frenetico, desafiante y dificil. y es de apreciar que consideren el online local, sin duda tiene mucho potencial.

Upvoted, didn't see gameplay like this :)

Reminds of good old Nitrome times ;) e. g. "Fault Line".
