"We have already released a game on X360, PS3, Windows, OSX, and OnLive and we are continuously investigating other possible platforms," reads the job listing. "We are currently investigating [the] following new platforms: iOS, Win8, Android, NACL, and other platforms could become relevant as well."

Limbo was not specifically called out in the job listing, but the shadowy 2010 platformer is the only title the studio has shipped. That game debuted on Xbox Live and subsequently arrived on Mac, Windows PC, the PlayStation Network, and the streaming service OnLive. In its job listing, the studio also noted that it is "working on our next title, following the release of Limbo."
