Homebound is available now for HTC Vive and Oculus Rift via Steam. The game is priced at £5.99/$8.99/€8.99 and early adopters can also look forward to a further 20% off for a week after release.

"Players will defy death as they become a lone astronaut facing a series of catastrophic events in deep space in this short and intense VR experience. With nothing but their senses and the ship’s AI to rely on for guidance, the only option is to fight to stay alive. But when disaster strikes and the ship, out of control, begins hurtling towards Earth...the chances for survival begin to decrease with every second.

Dead or alive -- you are Homebound." Store.steampowered.com
