Retro puzzle-platformer "spaceBOUND" launches onto Steam Early Access

Today, Gravity Whale Games launched its debut title spaceBOUND via Steam’s Early Access program. The game comes via Steam Greenlight and a successful supplementary fundraising campaign on Kickstarter. 

spaceBOUND is a solo or co-op puzzle-platformer. Players control two astronauts who must overcome deadly obstacles and solve motion/physics-based puzzles in a zero-gravity environment. The catch? The astronauts have crash landed on an asteroid and have to share their oxygen via a tether. If one astronaut dies or the tether breaks, they both die. 

Combining a brutal level of difficulty with retro 16-bit artwork and an intense and atmospheric soundtrack, spaceBOUND brings players back to an era of classic puzzle / platform games and asks them to cooperate in ways few other games do. 

spaceBOUND’s Early Access build is fully-playable, missing only online co-op (included with full release). The game’s full version is expected to launch in late August. Gravity Whale Games decided on a short Early Access period to reward supporters and get broader player feedback. 

spaceBOUND is available to download and play NOW on Windows, Mac, and Linux. Head over to the Steam Store page to grab your early access copy: h ttp://store.steampowered.com/app/653190/spaceBOUND/
