Playdead’s Limbo follow-up, new details and concept art

Thursday, 14th June 2012 07:56 GMT By Stace Harman

New details and a piece of concept art for Limbo developer’s “Project 2″ have emerged courtesy of the Danish Film Institute.

Playdead’s follow-up to its 2010 indie-hit, Limbo, is a colourful 2D platformer set in a 3D environment, according to details listed on the website of the Dutch Film Institute. The above concept art accompanies the listing.

On a list of projects supported by the DFI, a synopsis for Playdead’s “Project 2″ describes it as featuring “unique puzzles” and depicting “…the story of one boy’s struggle against evil forces through questionable experiments on human bodies”. The DFI is contributing $1,000,000 to the project.

Last year, Playdead head Dino Patti spoke of his satisfaction with how the project is progressing. At the time he said it was looking “crazy good” and although he wouldn’t be drawn on a release date he said he expected development to run to around three and a half years, placing it somewhere around 2014. The game will launch on PS3, 360, PC and Mac as a download title.

Thanks, Kotaku

    This’ll be interesting. Also, the games total budget isn’t $1,000,000; the Danish Film Institute has contributed 1,000,000 DKK to it. That’s around $170,000.

    It’s also not the “Dutch Film Institute” but the “Danish Film Institute” :)
    Dutch would be Netherlands

    I can see you corrected this in the heading, not in the text (link to their website).
