Playdead Limbo Inside PS4 PlayStation 4

Indie developer Playdead has only released two games: Limbo and Inside. Both are bleak, fairly short 2D adventures, and they're both brilliant. We know the studio's next game is in production, but other than it having more of a sci-fi slant than its predecessors, we've heard very little about it. However, thanks to Danish multimedia site DR, we now have some small clues about the direction the new game is heading.

Playdead's Arnt Jensen has told the publication that the follow-up to Inside will be quite different, stating it'll be set in a much bigger environment -- and it sounds like it may ditch 2D as well. If you can forgive some Google Translate wobbles, here's what he says about the new title: "It will be a little bigger game than the other two. It becomes more open and then it becomes a 3rd person game with a much larger area that you can move around."

Jensen continues: "It's a sci-fi adventure in the universe. But it draws on the same feelings as the other two games, so it becomes small-melancholy." It sounds like it'll be a more expansive adventure with a similarly dark tone. That's about all we can glean from this interview, but with two excellent games under its belt, we're definitely interested to know more about Playdead's future projects.
