The creators of Limbo and Inside, two sinister and brilliant side-scrolling adventures, is making something new. We knew this already thanks to an interview from last year, but some fresh images have now surfaced online -- thanks to Playdead's own website, no less.

Hidden away in job vacancies, this concept art looks fantastic, and hints at yet another deliciously melancholy world to explore.

Explore seems to be the right word, too, as it was hinted during the aforementioned interview that this new game will ditch the studio's usual 2D perspective in favour of something more open. It certainly sounds good to us -- whatever Playdead's next title turns out to be, we're excited to learn more.
