  • News Limbo and Inside Dev's Next Game Is Much More Open

    Heading outside

    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...

  • Video You Really, Really Should Play Inside on PS4

    Don't be on the outside

    Whatever you think of our review policy here at Push Square Towers – and whether we should invest our biscuit budget into an office steering wheel – there's one thing that we can all agree: 10/10 review scores are rare. In fact, while some sites may use the upper-end of their scale liberally, we like to be a bit more...

    Review Inside

    Step Inside

    Reviewing Inside is a tough proposition. On the one hand, this is a game that is fully deserving of a write-up overflowing with superlatives. On the other hand, to describe practically anything that happens in the game in anything other than the vaguest of terms would be to rob the player of the joy of discovering those moments for...

  • News Is Limbo Dev Playdead's Inside Coming to PS4?

    Studio wants game in as many hands as possible

    One game that's been not-so quietly drawing plenty of plaudits over the past couple of weeks is Limbo developer Playdead's Inside. The puzzle platformer has been hoovering up 10/10 reviews like they're going out of fashion, and currently commands a 92 on Metacritic. The problem? It's not currently...
