First details and concept art for Limbo developer's next game
The Danish Film Institute's website hints at Playdead's next game, currently dubbed "Project 2."
DFI is contributing funds to the game, which "tells the story of a boy's struggle against evil forces trying to take over the world through questionable experiments on human bodies."
The listing pegs it as a puzzle-platformer/adventure title for PS3, Xbox 360, PC, and Mac. It's slated for release in 2014.
Last year Playdead CEO Dino Patti called Project 2 "similar in many ways [to Limbo], but so different" and "more weird." In response, Danish newspaper Politiken called the game "a bleak spiritual successor to the award-winning Limbo."
