That Sony Santa Monica tease was for Bound


A modern art-inspired 3D platformer

Oh, Bound! (Psst. What’s Bound?)

A few days ago, Santa Monica Studio teased a game announcement with an obscured clip of someone dancing. I couldn’t make any sense of it, but as some of you smartly guessed, it’s a new thing, not another take on an existing property like, hah, God of War.

Bound is 3D platformer from Plastic (Linger in Shadows, Datura) “designed for people with the desire to concentrate on the narrative side of games and experience a mature story.”

It’s hard to get a sense of that from the initial trailer, but I like what they’re going for, visually.

If this does well enough to warrant a sequel, I sincerely hope it’s named Bound 2.
