iON Bond - a puzzle game about the beauty of particle collisions


Smiling Bag, a game development team based in Scotland, are about to release their third game, “iON Bond”, a puzzle game which is about particles, people, philosophy, and everything in between. Smiling Bag are a small team of indie developers based in the fair city of Dundee, Scotland. Our previous game, ‘ I Am Level’ was received favourably when it was released last October.

Players form bonds to create forces, and collide particles together inside a simulated vacuum, and create beautiful imagery. The game was inspired by images of bubble chamber tracks. Players aim to clear the stages by colliding all the particles together, but as more particle types with bizarre behaviours, as well as environmental  elements such as dark matter enter the game, it gets quite complicated. But it’s mostly about gazing in awe at simulated particle collisions!


It’s aiming for release on  May 29th on iOS / Android / Computers (PC / Mac ), priced at 69p on mobile or £1.99 for the more advanced PC version.
