Dino Patti, CEO of Danish indie studio Playdead, announced today his intention to leave the studio. Playdead is known for their atmospheric, haunting platformer Limbo, and their follow-up, Inside, has been receiving widespread critical acclaim. Patti is, at least, leaving the studio on a very high note.
This week's Humble Bundle brings out some of the biggest indie titles of the past few years, with Tim Schafer's Brutal Legend tossed in.
Major Nelson has announced the upcoming Xbox Live Marketplace content coming to the service in the next two weeks. The content is highlighted by the Minecraft-like The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim expansion Hearthfire today, while Armored Kill is coming to Battlefield Premium members next week, while the 4th Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 DLC pack, Final Assault, arrives this week.
The creator of Limbo is hard at work on 'Project 2' but it won't be in the hands of fans for "at least two years" and may include "many ideas" that were cut from Limbo throughout its development.
The team "always experiment with ideas," said game director Arnt Jensen. Limbo was "a lot of financial risk" to PlayDead as they stopped only when they "felt it was ready" to release.
Some details of Limbo developer Playdead's next game have started to trickle out, and it seems to be a spiritual successor to their dark, moody game. The game is codenamed "Project 2", and is allegedly a 2.5D platformer that "tells the story of a boy's struggle against evil forces trying to take over the world through questionable experiments on human bodies."
