News

Bounden finally hits the App Store on May 21st!

Bounden is Game Oven's whimsical dancing game for two players, with choreography by the Dutch National Ballet. Twist and twirl elegantly, or get entangled with a friend. Holding either end of a device, you tilt the device around a virtual sphere following a path of rings. You swing your arms and twist your body, and before you know it, you are already dancing. You can play at a bar, during a date, or as a performance, even with other couples playing at the same time.

Bounden started as an experiment to make people ‘dance’ together. After various prototypes, we found a way that was able to make two people, standing opposite of each other, move fluently and synchronously. By that time, we found that designing the movements was immensely difficult: this is why we called the Dutch National Ballet to help us make actual choreography, and to our surprise, their reaction was ‘sure’. Bounden is made in cooperation with the Junior Company of the Dutch National Ballet. The Junior Company is a group of talented dancers led by dancer and choreographer Ernst Meisner, who is responsible for most of the choreography in the game. Each dance is accompanied by classical music composed by Bart Delissen.
