Details emerge on Limbo dev's next project
Playdead-developed puzzle platformer Project 2 (working title) headed to PS3, Xbox 360, PC, and Mac.
Copenhagen-based developer Playdead, creator of 2010's critically acclaimed side-scroller Limbo, has begun work on its next game, tentatively titled Project 2.
According to the Danish Film Institute's website (which can be viewed in English), Playdead's next title is a puzzle platformer adventure for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PC, and Mac.
Listed as having a budget of £1 million ($1.55 million), the game will follow the adventures of a boy as he does battle with evil forces through "puzzles and changing scenarios." The game will be in colour and will be set in a 3D environment; however, according to the site, the gameplay will take place in 2D.
In November last year, Playdead revealed that Limbo crossed the one million units sold mark, across the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.
Limbo puts players in the shoes of a small child who must find his way through a black-and-white world, filled with puzzles and dangerous, often deadly, obstacles. The game won critical acclaim upon release, which was followed by a small avalanche of award nominations that yielded multiple Interactive Achievement Awards and a Game Developers Choice Award.
