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.

Report: Game of Thrones Creator Collaborating With FromSoftware

FromSoftware Game of Thrones

The writer of A Song of Ice and Fire, the book series behind the popular television show Game of Thrones, has reportedly been consulting on a FromSoftware title.

In a blog post on his official website, George R. R. Martin stated that he has “consulted on a video game out of Japan.”

Gematsu has reported that a contact familiar with FromSoftware—the Japanese development studio known for Dark SoulsBloodborne, and Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice—has shared that Martin is working with the studio on a project known internally as “GR.”

According to Gematsu‘s contact, the project, which has been in development for three years, is an open-world game and will feature horse riding. The player will be able to visit several kingdoms and obtain abilities by killing their leaders. Hidetaka Miyazaki, director of some of FromSoftware’s most acclaimed titles, is reportedly working on the game.

Gematsu reports that the title will be officially announced at Microsoft’s E3 press conference later this year.

YouTube channel Spawn Wave reported in March about a rumour regarding a potential collaboration between Martin and FromSoftware, so this recent report gives even more validity to the speculation. However, without any official word, the news should be taken with a grain of salt.
