Playdead, the Danish developer behind the award-winning downloadable title Limbo, says the company's next game is already looking "more weird" and "more crazy" than Limbo. Playdead's Dino Patti talked about the new project with Eurogamer at a recent game festival in the UK:
I'm really proud of it already. I know the art is not fully there yet, but for me it's the perfect project two for our company, because it's similar in many ways, but so different.
The next project is more crazy than Limbo, if you say that's crazy. It's more weird in many ways.
Playdead has been working on the title for over a year already, but don't expect to see any announcements or reveals until it's much closer to being finished.
…our production time is long, so we don't want to tire people out. I hate when the big publishers show something one or two years before the launch.
We'll probably talk about [project two] a bit before [it's out]. We still haven't decided when we'll talk about it.
Patti did, however, discuss a few minor details—the game will be in color and will likely be another downloadable title. Playdead is also looking to have a wide release across platforms but isn't ready to make any promises at this point.
Limbo won our "Best Downloadable Title of 2010" award and, to this day, remains one of the most interesting and artistic downloadable titles available.
