Bubble-wrap your controllers, soundproof the windows, grab a buddy, some ear plugs and get ready to scream at each others incompetence... because spaceBOUND has officially launched!

spaceBOUND - the brutally challenging puzzle-platformer you love-to-hate is finally here and it’s ready to test your skills and your friendships. Don’t have any friends? Not a problem! Multitask yourself into a puddle of self-pity, as you guide two innocent astronauts into an early grave.

Born from an indie game jam and raised by it’s loving Kickstarter supports, spaceBOUND is Gravity Whale Games debut title. Players control two astronauts who must overcome deadly obstacles while solving timing and physics-based puzzles in a zero-gravity environment. The catch? They share an oxygen tether. If one astronaut dies or the tether breaks, they both die.

Combining brutal, unforgiving gameplay with retro 16-bit artwork and an atmospheric score, spaceBOUND brings players back to the era of classic puzzle and platform games and asks them to cooperate in ways few other games do. Will players be able to solve and survive? Are the asteroid and mining facility truly abandoned? Find out in spaceBOUND!

Here’s a sample of what some lovely Youtube folks had to say: 

“Oooh, oooh, no, no, go back, go back, go back, I’m not ready yet! I’m not ready yet!” 

“Nooooo... the saw, the saw. ARRRRGHHHH. I have to do this all again!” 

“Did that achievement just make fun of us? Ooooh, I think it did”
