Info on Limbo’s Spiritual Successor Revealed
If you enjoyed Limbo, then you’ll be pleased to hear the development studio behind the 2010′s indie sensation is hard at work on a spiritual successor. A few details have emerged from a Danish government grant website (which you should check out, because the Danish language is awesome) including the above concept art and a brief description of the new project, named Project 2 (working title).
According to a rough translation courtesy of my Google Chrome browser, the description is as follows: “Through unique puzzles and changing scenarios narrated the story of one boy’s struggle against evil forces through questionable experiments on human bodies, trying to take over the world. The game is in color and set in a 3D environment, while the gameplay takes place as a 2D platformer.”
So while we may get an injection of color and slightly more complex mechanics, a similar dark theme seems to be in order. Only this time, the game will probably more explicit in it’s disturbing content. Sounds awesome.
The game will be available on Xbox 360, Playstation 3, PC, and Mac, though unfortunately there are no concrete details on a release window.
