Post news RSS Bounden - the first 2-player mobile dance game

The second development video of Bounden is online! In this video, Adriaan explains how Bounden works and how it guides you and your friend to dance together.

Posted by on

For those of you who haven't heard of Bounden before: Bounden is a mix of Twister and ballet. You use your phone as a guide to dance or get entangled with someone else. So, you pull out your phone, ask another person to put down a thumb, and move synchronously to dance together.

Bounden is pretty much the first attempt at bringing together programmers, choreographers,
music composers, filmmakers, and visual artists. The game will feature dances by choreographers from the Dutch National Ballet and each dance is accompanied by classical music specifically composed for the game.

We're filming the entire development process. Check out our latest video here at IndieDB or on Vimeo: Vimeo.com

At the moment, we made a dance editor, so we can now easily create dances and play them right away. This means the choreographers at the Dutch National Ballet can really start working on Bounden now! In the coming weeks, we're focusing on making dances, composing and integrating music, and 'game feel'.

We're also going to GDC! We'll keep you guys updated. :)

Interesting idea, looks a bit raw now, but I like to concept.
