Chained is a 2.5 platforming game, that uses its ball and chain mechanic to explore the nature of negative dependency and loss. The game follows "That Guy" as he falls deeper and deeper to his negative dependency, culminating in his final, player driven choice, between freedom or wretchedness. Chained attempts to tell it's narrative soley through the progression of play and through use of environmental story telling. Players are meant to feel a range of emotions including joy, triumph, sorrow, and frustration.
