    DESCRIPTION
    HopBound is a story-driven psychological horror game that revolves around the surreal mind of Mayumi, a recluse who must journey through an unsettling retro game to come to terms with the ghosts of her past. Through 16-bit horror platformer stages and endless runner levels with gorgeous pixel art, she discovers that her sanity will be tested by something lurking behind the screen.

    NOSTALGIC VISUALS
    Most of the game's stunning visuals use a palette of only four colors to evoke the charm of 90s handheld games.

    SPINE-CHILLING AUDIO
    Listen to unique ambient music that provide a sense of dream-like dread as you explore the game's sinister levels.

    A STANDALONE CONTINUATION
    Taking place two years after the events of the critically acclaimed DERE EVIL EXE, HopBound serves as a continuation of that story. However, users do not need to play DERE EVIL EXE to immerse themselves in HopBound's narrative experience.

    HEART-POUNDING MONSTERS
    Enemies from previous entries are brought back to life and have evolved into new incomprehensible forms.

    MULTIPLE GAME MODES
    Engage in frenzied platforming in story-rich levels and test your skills in infinite runner levels tailored for people who like competing for high scores on the Game Center leaderboard.

    MEANINGFUL MACHINATIONS
    Going against sequel conventions, HopBound doesn't go bigger and badder for the scale of its story. Instead, the game focuses inward, resulting in a haunting yet meaningful tale.

    Downloads not as good as DERE EVIL EXE so far (probably shouldn't have stopped making games for two years) but in the long run I think this game has better potential in terms of its critic reviews, awards, and its legacy for the video game world. So we'll see how it goes. I'm happy I got this game out there and people are loving it. The toughest project I've ever worked on but the project that got me out of a bad place mentally.
