I don’t remember when, but back in Oort Online days, I ran into the trailer for the game and new I wanted it. The portals and the worlds to explore were exactly what I wanted at the time.
I looked into it some, watching some YouTube play videos, and decided to wait until it was more fleshed out.
Periodically, I would see it pop up in one feed or another, and I would check on it. It eventually ended up in my Steam wishlist with 100 other games.
When my wife and I were looking for a game to play together (both kids are finally old enough we have some extra time!), Boundless happened to have come in on an isthereanydeal.com email as being on sale, so I showed her the trailer for it along with a few others.
After researching to make sure the game had enough population and features that we would enjoy it as it is right now, we bought two copies and haven’t looked back.
