In Unbound: Worlds Apart, players take on the role of Soli, an adorable little wizard who can create portals that open up space between two dimensions. A catastrophe has destroyed Soli's world, and Soli can only find answers through traveling the land (and another reality or two). The portals will do more than simply change up the visual style or reveal enemies; the laws of physics and even Soli's own abilities may change within this limited space, mixing up the gameplay for a tiny section of a level.

 
 
"Unbound is a game in which you not only explore a beautiful world and solve environmental puzzles, but also have a number of different mechanics and changeable behaviours that you'll need to learn, adapt to, and use to progress through the story. You'll always have an alternative world available to you by opening a portal. But there's an element of risk and reward, as you never know what will be lurking on the other side." - Unbound: Worlds Apart Art Director Olga Ciob
Unbound: Worlds Apart is the second title from Alien Pixel Studios on Steam. Their first game Polandball: Can Into Space! did reasonably well for an indie title based on a Reddit meme. Alien Pixel Studios says that they'll be launching a Kickstarter campaign on May 7, 2019, to finish up work on what they have for the game so far. An early demo of the game is expected to arrive sometime in early Spring 2019, ostensibly to coincide with the launch date of their Kickstarter campaign.

If Unbound: Worlds Apart sounds like something you'd enjoy, you can add the game to your wishlist on Steam. You may also want to follow the game on Twitter or join the game's official Discord.

I've had a controller in my hand since I was 4 and I haven't stopped gaming since. CCGs, Tabletop Games, Pen & Paper RPGs - I've tried a whole bunch of stuff over the years and I'm always looking to try more!
