Playdead Says It Is “Tired of the Limitations In 2D Games”

Playdead, the minds behind hypnagogic platformers Limbo and Inside, has teased some more details for its upcoming project.

As previous reports implied, the developer’s next title will be a sci-fi affair. Now, the studio has released some more detail, courtesy of Danish publication DR:

“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. I’ve been tired of the limitations in 2D games. We have been through all over the past many years. So without knowing how to deal with the big world, that’s the way we did to get back on insecure grounds.” 

The game, described as a “small-melancholy” by Arnt Jensen, Playdead’s founder, appears to be a step out of the studio’s comfort zone. Whatever the game turns out to be, Playdead looks to prove its pedigree.
