Watch a trailer for the dance-inspired puzzle game Bound

Out this summer

After a brief tease yesterday at E3, Sony has just unveiled its first trailer for Bound, a new PS4 puzzle game. Bound is a 3D platformer created by the experimental studio Plastic, responsible for games like Datura and Linger in Shadows. Bound is interesting in part because its main character is a ballerina — the studio motion-captured the choreography of real-life dancer Maria Udod to decide how the character would move.

Equally compelling is the game's abstract, geometric design. "If you are interested in art movements such as Suprematism, Concretism, Neoplasticism, or what Bauhaus has delivered, then you are going to love the world that we have created," developer Michal Staniszewski wrote in a blog post.

Bound will be released on August 16th.
