Bounden 2

As unusual as it seems, Bounden really is what it sounds like. The idea is that two players/dancers have to touch the screen at the same time, and rotate it around different axis, moving the ball on the screen to a required position, thus forcing themselves into an impromptu dance routine. A unique concept, to say the least. Bounden will be available around the summer of 2014.
