Rotund Rebound‘s terrain isn’t solid and the character is always bouncing. So this combination makes every scenario dynamic and every movement significant. Mastery of timing and energy is repeated by an outstanding millisecond clock. So that each level is a solid standalone experience built around a Time Attack concept. Awarding medals based on performance. Rotund Rebound never forces players to get a fast time to proceed. But the entire gameplay design has speedrunning in mind. From its ample stat tracking to its snappy menus and speedy respawns.

“For many, speedrunning is a mystic art of complex and seemingly impossible maneuvers,” said Paul Burns of Dahku. “By focusing instead on the nuance of basic fundamental motions. Rotund Rebound intuitively opens the door for newcomers to share in the thrill of speedrunning. It’s amazing how hitting a single block at the right angle, moment, and speed. This can change how an entire level plays out. Finding moments like that is where the game shines brightest.”
