Homebound

Homebound is a VR adventure game powered by Unreal Engine 4. We play as an astronaut who is based on a space station when a catastrophe happens. Firstly, we will have to figure out what to do on the Earth's orbit. After that, we will have to face the dangers of entering the atmosphere. The last thing that awaits us is the emergency landing. In terms of mechanics, Homebound is an action-adventure game that tests our cleverness and reflexes. We will have to explore our surroundings, solve simple logical puzzles, and test ourselves in arcade challenges. The game is presented from a first-person perspective. Finishing one of Homebound's segments takes from a dozen or so minutes and up to one hour. Each of them can be played repeatedly, so that we can try to beat our friends or high scores. Additionally, every scenario is filled with hidden secrets and items. Finding all of the possible ways of killing the astronaut is also quite entertaining.
