A downloadable Homestuck mess for Windows

Download NowName your own price

Openbound Online is a small project that me and my mate Alex created in only a few days for the heck of it.

I'm a massive Homestuck fan so, that's that.

The purpose of this "game" is for you to roleplay with your pals and whatever, although it is by no means finished, it can still be "played".

To play with friends, someone needs to host, and the rest need to connect via IP address. Host must have port 7777 open or all players must have a software like Hamachi installed.

Anyway, enjoy!


  1. WASD or Arrows: Movement
  2. Enter: Starts typing, then enter again to send
  3. Alt: Hide chat
  4. Shift: RUN
  5. CTRL: Shows player list and ping
  6. Esc (while ingame) exists to main menu


  • What to put in port? - Leave it empty, but you need to have port 7777 open, otherwise you'll have to use a software like Hamachi to connect with your pals.
  • Help button has no help?? - So what? All the help you can need is on this page!
  • How to connect? - Enter IP of host and click SSH or Execute.sh to host :)
  • I FOUND A BUG FEOFDJOKWEetgegeqfjie - Send it in the comments asap so we can FIX IT!!
  • This "game" stinks" -  Well so do you!

Current Features:

  • Add sound settings
  • And graphical settings I guess
  • Fix the nameplates somehow, when it's in small res it looks ugly
