Steel Wool Studios is an independent VR development studio formed by veterans of Pixar Animation Studios, Lucasfilm and Telltale Games. In Bounce, they’ve combined the powerful narrative elements of feature animation films with the intricate gameplay mechanics of VR to create the ultimate puzzle adventure.

In the game, players will help a robot called D1G-B make its way through 50 rooms using an array of gadgets such as accelerators, trampolines and tractor beams. As things progress, the action will become more frenzied by adding moving blockers, laser gates, gravity wells, and multi-floor rooms.

Jason Topolski, co-founder, Steel Wool Studios: Bounce started off as an early experiment to see how far we could push the limits of VR to challenge players. By introducing a narrative element, which is core to our game philosophy, we think we’ve added a cool new dimension to the physics game genre that will keep the players excited about what happens next.

According to the developer, Bounce for HTC Vive and Oculus Rift will be arriving soon.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
